Spending more than $600 at Costco, you’ll need to issue a 1099 (another tax form)!

October 23, 2010

1099 Tax formA provision in the recently enacted health care legislation may catch many small businesses, corporations and even nonprofits organizations off-guard, perhaps doubling or more the number of forms 1099 they have to issue.

The new legislation changed the requirements that once only applied to entities doing business/paying out funds to non-incorporated entities, such as individuals, sole-proprietorships and LLCs. It is no longer that simple. Under the new legislation, every business that contracts/pays more than $600 to any other business, even corporations, during the course of the year, must issue a 1099.
