1099-NEC Form

There is a new form that the IRS has unveiled for the 2020 tax season and beyond. It’s called a 1099-NEC. A copy of the form and its related instructions are available on the IRS.gov website.

Prior to the presence of this form, any non-employee compensation paid out of your business that exceeded $600 in any year to a non-corporate service provider had to be reported on form 1099-MISC. You will now have to report those payments on form 1099-NEC.

Whether you have a service provider prepare these types of reporting forms or if you preparing them yourself, make sure you are aware of the 1099-NEC’s requirements and that you are completing the form correctly.

As a note:

The 1099-MISC form is still to be used to report things such as rents paid, prizes and awards, etc.

COVID-19-Related Tax Relief Act

The COVID-19-Related Tax Relief Act includes the extensions and expansions of tax-relief contained in the Families First Coronavirus Response Act and the CARES Act. It also includes some new provisions aimed at providing tax relief to taxpayers suffering medical and economic hardships due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic

Recovery Rebates/Direct Stimulus Payments

Just as with the CARES Act in March, the act includes a direct payment to taxpayers in an effort to stimulate a flagging economy. The provision was a late addition to the package, in response to demands from several lawmakers on both sides of the aisle.

Unlike the Economic Impact Payments (also known as Recovery Rebate Credits) provided in the CARES Act, these payments are only $600 per individual, where the earlier round in the spring provided a $1,200 payment per individual. However, families can claim the full $600 amount for child dependents, where the credit was limited to $500 for children in the previous round of payments.

2021 Tax Filing Season Begins Feb. 12

IRS outlines steps to speed refunds during pandemic

The 2021 tax season will start on Friday, Feb. 12, 2021 when the IRS will begin accepting and processing 2020 tax year returns. The Feb. 12 start date for individual tax return filers allows the IRS time to do additional programming and testing of IRS systems following the Dec. 27 tax law changes that provided a second round of Economic Impact Payments and other benefits.

The additional programming work is critical to ensuring IRS systems run smoothly. These changes ensure that eligible people will receive any remaining stimulus money as a Recovery Rebate Credit when they file their 2020 tax return.
