1099 Due Date Is Right Around The Corner!

Even though the 1099 due date isn't until Jan. 10, 2016, it's a good idea to start looking at the companies or individuals your Region is paying and verify if they require a 1099 at the end of the year. Companies or individuals requiring a 1099 are considered independent contractors who are paid more than $600 during the calendar year. Even if your Region paid an independent contractor less than $600, please submit the information to the National Office. Once you've compiled a list of vendors requiring a 1099, complete the Template for Region data excel sheet, along with a completed W-9 for each vendor listed to Michelle Yapelli. The National Office will then issue the 1099's.

 In summary, companies or individuals are independent contractors if they:

  • Performs services for multiple customers
  • Sets own hours
  • Determines own price for contracted services
  • Not eligible for employee benefits
  • Provides own tools and equipment to complete job
  • Supplies own materials needed to do job
  • Personally liable for errors and/or accidents
  • Files self-employment taxes and receives a Form 1099-MISC
  • Has the right to hire and fire workers
  • Must legally complete each contract

Examples of some Independent Contractors often hired by Regions are:

  • Website development
  • Third-party registration system development and maintenance
  • Bookkeeping services
  • Line painting
  • Security guards
  • Payments to trainers
  • Data-entry clerks
  • Groundskeepers/field maintenance
