Modified on Wed, 08 Nov 2023 at 10:51 AM


NOTE: Connected 11.1, or greater, contains all changes listed below. Earlier versions will not contain all necessary changes.

1099-NEC Introduction

The 1099-NEC (Non-Employment Compensation) form was introduced in the 2020 tax year. 1099-NEC is a form that solely reports non-employee compensation and is NOT a replacement for the 1099-MISC. Form 1099-NEC is only replacing the use of Form 1099-MISC for reporting independent contractor payments.

Since its creation in 2020, there have been multiple other changes required to support the new form.  Additionally, enhancements have been made to help with electronic filing.
