Impact of New IRS Requirements on 1099 Reporting for Direct Sellers: What You Need to Know and Your Questions Answered

PresentedBySovos

For 2020 tax reporting season, the IRS has resurrected Form 1099-NEC for businesses reporting non-employee compensation payments. At the same time, the agency also overhauled Form 1099-MISC for reporting other income. These developments will have an impact on your company and your distributors:

  • When do Direct Sellers need to issue Form 1099-NEC versus Form 1099-MISC?
  • What can Direct Sellers expect from the IRS to help alleviate the duplicate tax reporting burden?
  • How are state tax jurisdictions implementing these changes?

In this installation of the DSA ENGAGE Webinar Series, participants will gain insights into how these latest changes will impact direct sellers, and what relief we hope is on the way to alleviate some of the associated challenges.  Webinar participants will learn:

  • How to read and report Form 1099-NEC
  • How the 1099-NEC impacts 1099-MISC reporting, backup withholding and state reporting
  • How to update your 1099-MISC and 1099-NEC reporting processes and prevent errors

Join to gain insights into what you can do to offer direct sellers relief that we hope is on the way to alleviate some of the associated challenges.
