The 1099 form is the Internal Revenue Services tax form used for taxpayers (i.e. independent contractors, consultants, investors) to report income, whether from work or from investments that is not salaried income. There are many types of Form 1099 so the income provider will have to send a specific 1099 form, based on the types and sources of income earned, to the taxpayer. The applicable 1099 form is sent to both the taxpayer and to the IRS. In turns, the taxpayer will have to attach the 1099 form received in his tax return. The most common 1099 forms are the 1099-DIV to report stock dividends, the 1099-INT to report interest income, the 1099-B to report earnings from the sale or redemption of securities, the 1099-R to report distributions from retirement or profit-sharing plans, and the 1099-MISC to report income earned as an independent contractor. For example, if you are an independent contractor and are receiving an income greater than $600 per tax year, your client is required to send you a form 1099-MISC. Unlike a W-2 form however, no income reported on the 1099-MISC is withheld but income taxes and self-employment tax must be paid on such income. Issuers of 1099 forms must send the 1099 form to the recipients by January 31 and to the IRS by the last day of February (or March 31 if filed electronically).
