Course Materials

This course will provide tax executives and advisors with a review of important changes in the federal Form 1099 program, including expansions in Form 1099-MISC filing, the new 1099-K, and the updated Form 1099-C.


The 2010 federal health care reform bill contains provisions with a huge impact for corporate tax staffs handling Form 1099s. Starting in 2012, the Form 1099-MISC exclusion for reporting payments to corporations ends, and payments for goods above the $600 annual threshold must also be reported.

This means millions more 1099s will be filed and more tax may have to be withheld on contractor payments. Starting next year, many more online and other businesses will be issued reports on gross payments from credit and debit cards and from third-party e-payment processors via new Form 1099-K.

Reporting a lender's forgiveness of your company's debt on the updated Form 1099-C without paying additional tax also poses vexing compliance challenges. Heading into 2011, an update on Form 1099 developments, coupled with recommendations on adjusting corporate compliance programs, is critical.

Listen as our panel of experienced federal tax advisors helps prepare you for increased reporting demands and tougher compliance questions in the Form 1099 program.

  • Form 1099-K: Will your business be covered? What card revenue will have to be reported? Which payment processors are involved?
  • Form 1099-C: What kinds of lenders and charged-off debts are reportable? What are the exclusions to cancelled debt in income? Can your company avoid paying extra tax?
