Form 1099-MISC vs Form 1099-NEC

How are they Different?

For the tax year 2020, the IRS introduced new forms. Here is an example of 2 of the forms: 1099-MISC and 1099-NEC

Form 1099-MISC

Form 1099-MISC reports the total amount of payments a person receives from a single person or company during the tax year. The IRS requires any person or business to report certain types of payments on a 1099-MISC Form and to the IRS. The type of payments the IRS requires to be reported on this form are:

Form 1099-MISC used to be most commonly used for reporting earnings of independent contractors and consultants, both types of employment where the person employed is not an employee of the company.

  • Rent
  • Royalties
  • Prizes
  • Awards and substitute payments in lieu of dividends

This is also known as nonemployee compensation.

Starting in the 2020 tax year all nonemployee compensation will be reported on a new form, Form 1099-NEC.

Form 1099-NEC

Form 1099-NEC is a form dedicated to only nonemployee compensation, also known as self-employment income. This is the income that is received when someone is employed by an employer as an independent contractor versus an employee. Basically, Form 1099-NEC is an entire form dedicated to Box 7 on Form 1099-MISC. Subsequently, for tax year 2020, Box 7 has been removed from Form 1099-MISC. Essentially, Form 1099-NEC serves a similar purpose as Form W-2 does for employees. That purpose is to report the total amount of payments a person receives from a single person or business during the tax year.

Why did the IRS create Form 1099-NEC?

There are two main reasons why it made sense for the IRS to designate a form specifically for nonemployee compensation.

  1. More and more people are working as independent contractors making it make more sense to have a tax form dedicated specifically to this income.
  2. Previously, when nonemployee compensation was reported on Form 1099-MISC, it had a different deadline date than the form itself. Therefore, it didn’t make sense to use one form for payments that have two different deadline dates with the IRS.

Welcome to the World of “Keeping Track of your Finances” with QuickBooks (Desktop Version)

Truckee Meadows Community College is committed to maintaining a safe learning environment for all students, faculty, and staff. During these unprecedented times, the concept of “community” in the title of our institution takes on special meaning as we all commit to safe practices to ensure a healthy community that protects and addresses the needs of all of us. To this end, we must remain flexible, diligent, and compassionate in our efforts. Students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to remain at home if experiencing any symptoms of ill health. At TMCC, properly worn masks are mandatory in all classrooms, work spaces, and public spaces at all times.

– You will need this class:

if you are having a hard time keeping track of your income and expense?

– You will need this class:

if you have more months left after you got paid because you do not keep track of your finances

This class is mainly for small to medium business, however, that does not mean that an individual could not benefit from the knowledge and maybe start keeping track of their financial life.

Why this class?

Because, thousands of small companies and nonprofit organizations turn to Quickooks to keep their finances on track. And over the years, Intuit has introduced various editions of the program to satisfy the needs of different types of companies.

Back when milk was simply milk, you either used QuickBooks or you didn’t.

But now, when you can choose milk from soybeans and rice as well as cows, and with five different levels of fat, it’s no surprise that QuickBooks comes in a variety of editions (which, in some cases, are dramatically different from their siblings), as well as six industry-specific editions. From the smallest of sole proprietorship to burgeoning enterprises, one of these editions is likely to meet your needs and budget.

By the way, all tutorials are instructor-led and every student will receive a handout to include screenshots to help guide you through the material presented.

Here is an overview of some of the topics that we will cover:

  • An Introduction to QuickBooks
  • some Bookkeeping/Accounting Terms
  • Setting up your company (or yourself)
  • Chart of Accounts
  • Customers/Clients
  • Sales Tax
  • Vendors
  • Banking

It Couldn’t Be Done

by Edgar Guest

Somebody said that it couldn’t be done
But he with a chuckle replied
That “maybe it couldn’t,” but he would be one
Who wouldn’t say so till he’d tried.
So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin
On his face. If he worried he hid it.
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn’t be done, and he did it.

Somebody scoffed: “Oh, you’ll never do that;
At least no one ever has done it;”
But he took off his coat and he took off his hat
And the first thing we knew he’d begun it.
With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin,
Without any doubting or quiddit,
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn’t be done, and he did it.

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done,
There are thousands to prophesy failure,
There are thousands to point out to you one by one,
The dangers that wait to assail you.
But just buckle in with a bit of a grin,
Just take off your coat and go to it;
Just start in to sing as you tackle the thing
That “cannot be done,” and you’ll do it.
