Important 1099 Forms Update

IRS change impacts formatting of Forms 1099R, 1099 MISC, 1099 NEC, and 1099K 

The IRS has added 2 new payment fields (fields 17 and 18) to the 1099 form. As a result, the position of several existing fields will change on the following forms: 

  • 1099R
  • 1099 MISC
  • 1099 NEC
  • 1099K

We're following the IRS format, so please make sure to send us your files using the updated federal specifications (which you can find in our W2/1099 Guide for Web Upload). This change is retroactive, so if you are sending prior-year 1099s, you must use the new federal format.


For more information on filing options and requirements, see the Withholding Tax page on our website. If you have additional questions, contact us at 804.367.8037.
