The IRS recommends e-filing Form 1099 for quicker processing. Get started with an that supports e-filing 1099 Forms with Federal and State agencies. BoomTax will distribute your form copies via Postal Mail and Online Access.

Until the tax year 2019, Form 1099-MISC was utilized to report nonemployee compensation in Box 7. Starting in the tax year 2020, the IRS reintroduced Form 1099-NEC for reporting nonemployee compensation on a separate form. Box 7 on 1099-MISC was repurposed and is now designated for reporting direct sales of $5,000 or more.

For the 2023 tax year, the FATCA Filing Requirement checkbox has been moved to Box 13. Boxes 13-17 from the 2021 version of the form have been renumbered as 14-18 to accommodate this change.

What are the updates to Form 1099-MISC for 2023?

For the 2023 tax year, the IRS has implemented a few changes to Form 1099-MISC. Box 13 has been converted into a checkbox to indicate the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) filing requirement. This seemingly simple box conversion led to the original boxes 13-17 being renumbered.

The subsequent alterations have been made to Form 1099-MISC for the 2023 tax year:
