Update Sage 100 to Handle New IRS Changes to 1099 Reporting
Does your company issue 1099s for contractors and are you up to speed with the new 1099-NEC form introduced by the IRS? Beginning this Year-End 2020, non-employee compensation is no longer being reported with the 1099-MISC form. 1099-NEC has replaced 1099-MISC and is now the correct form for non-employee compensation for independent contractors.
Instructions for the new 1099 form can be found at https://www.irs.gov/instructions/i1099msc.
As also outlined on the IRS website, this form is due January 31. With this accelerated deadline, you will have to move fast to ensure year-end tax filing compliance! Luckily, certain versions of Sage 100 have been updated with the new form and will help you fulfill the new requirements.
The new 1099-NEC Nonemployee Compensation form will be released in Sage 100 versions 2020.0, 2019.3, 2018.9 only. This will also include changes to 1099-Misc. To confirm your version of Sage 100 complies, check Help > About.
The Nonemployee Comp field will also be available in the following locations in Sage 100 version 2020:
- Vendor Maintenance — Default Form field on Additional tab
- 1099 Payment History window — 1099 Form Type field
- AP Invoice Data Entry — (1099 Payment) Form field on the Header tab
- Manual Check and Payment Entry — 1099 Form field on the Lines tab
The Sage 100 Accounts Payable module has also been updated with the new 1099-NEC forms for version 2020 – watch a video here to see other exciting new AP features.
