Penalties for Form 1099

You might incur a penalty if you neglect to provide the recipient with a Form 1099. The penalty amount will depend on when you submit the correct information return or deliver the right payee statement. If you fail to correctly submit Form 1099 to the IRS or neglect to provide the Form 1099 to the recipient, you could be liable for two distinct penalties.

What are the Circumstances for a Form 1099 Penalty?

The IRS applies penalties if 1099 recipient copies aren't distributed by the deadline. When e-filing your 1099 Forms, you don't need to include Form 1096. However, if you file your 1099 Forms in paper format, you may face a penalty for not including your 1096 Form when mailing all forms to the IRS.

Penalties may apply if you neglect to submit 1099 Forms by the stipulated deadline and can't provide a valid reason. You could face penalties if you:

  • Miss the submission deadline
  • Do not include all necessary information in your 1099 Forms
  • Submit forms with inaccurate information
  • Submit paper forms when required to e-file
  • Submit an incorrect Tax Identification Number (TIN)
  • Omit a TIN, or
  • Submit paper 1099 Forms that can't be machine-read

Additional penalties may apply if you provide incomplete or inaccurate statements. It's possible to avoid penalties if you demonstrate a reasonable cause, but the IRS must approve this. A separate penalty may also apply if you fail to deliver 1099-NEC/MISC statements to payees timely. The penalty amount depends on when you provide the correct statement.

What is the Penalty for Missing Form 1099 Deadline?

Failing to file Form 1099 by the deadline or meeting the deadline but providing incorrect recipient information can result in IRS penalties ranging from $60 to $630, depending on how late the form is submitted. The IRS has increased the penalty amounts for the 2024 filing year.

After the deadline, but within 30 days

$60 per form

After 31 days - August 1st

$120 per form

After August 1st, or not at all

$310 per form

Intentionally not filing

$630 per form

1099 penalties may be subject to the following:

  • Furnishing incorrect information on a return
  • Failure to provide the required information
  • Late filing of returns
  • Paper filing when required to file electronically (E-file 1099 if you have 10 or more information returns)

The IRS is accustomed to changing rules year-to-year, sometimes even in the middle of the current tax season! This is why having the most accurate information about the IRS requirements and deadlines for filing any Form 1099 is essential.
