Payroll Tax FAQs

The IRS Form 1099-NEC replaces the Box 7 from the IRS Form 1099-MISC for reporting nonemployee compensation amounts. Legislation in 2015 caused the deadline for Box 7 information to change from March 31 to January 31, but the due date for the other boxes on the 1099-MISC forms remained March 31. In essence, this change created two separate deadlines for the same form. The 1099-MISC will then be used for all other types of miscellaneous compensation. Here is a sample informational version of IRS Form 1099-NEC for reference.

There are no income taxes withheld on payments made. IRS Form 1099-MISC is the standard statement delivered to contractors.

The IRS Form 1095-C reports the offering of Medical Benefit Coverage for Full Time Equivalent (FTE) employees for Applicable Large Employers (ALE). As a part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), the forms provided outline which months in a year applicable employees received an offer of healthcare coverage.

The IRS Form 1094-C is often referred to as a transmittal form. It is a summary of information from the individual IRS Forms 1095-C (much like the W-3 is a transmittal of all employers' Form W-2s).  It also provides specific details, such as the number of full-time and total employees per month and whether employers are eligible for other relief criteria.

For information about completing Forms 1094-C and 1095-C, see the IRS's Instructions for Forms 1094-C and 1095-C.
