Why File 1099-MISC Online?

Form 1099-MISC (aka Miscellaneous Income) is furnished to IRS for the purpose of reporting all earnings of self-employed individuals. This miscellaneous form is filed so the IRS knows when someone has received Miscellaneous Income and that taxes shall be paid on it (assuming any are owed).

The 1099 tax software is one of the best tools that the IRS has in making sure that self-employed contractors don't underreport their earnings and are taxed appropriately. Taxes owed by self-employed are calculated based on what they have been paid during the tax year. Penalties are imposed and enforced if a hiring firm intentionally fails to file 1099-MISC for independent contractors. Late penalties are also imposed if a self-employed person fails to report income over $600 as listed on the 1099-MISC Tax Form. Due to the IRS receiving 1099-MISC copy A when a business files, they are aware of the amount of income paid so it’s always the best policy, to be honest.
