What’s new for 1099 tax forms in 2021

There are a few notable changes for 2021 tax reporting:

Form 1099-NEC state filings

The IRS has added Form 1099-NEC to the list of eligible tax forms for the Combined Federal/State Filing (CF/SF) Program. However, states may still require the direct reporting of these tax forms. States should confirm whether using the CF/SF Program to share Form 1099-NEC information will satisfy their reporting requirements.

Revised Form 1099-NEC

The IRS has resized the Form 1099-NEC to reduce the height.

Form 1099-MISC name change

Form 1099-MISC is now called Miscellaneous Information instead of Miscellaneous Income.

Changes for the 2022 tax year

Beginning January 1, 2022, the threshold for reporting amounts on Form 1099-K will drop to $600 (from $20K and 200 transactions). Note this does not impact 2021 tax reporting that will be available to you in January 2022.
