Comply & Connect: Reporting

November 9-11, 2022


With the release of Publication 1220 for tax year 2021, we were made aware that the IRS has added Form 1099 NEC to the Combined Federal State Filing (CF/SF) program. This program is intended to relieve the burden of filing 1099s directly with states since the IRS forwards 1099s filed federally to participating state agencies. For tax year 2020, 36 states and the District of Columbia still had their own direct reporting requirements for the 1099-NEC that were not satisfied by the combined federal/state filing. Additionally, a subset of states do not participate in CF/SF, including Iowa, District of Columbia, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island.  It will be up to the state agencies whether or not to make a change to participate in CF/SF and not continue to require direct reporting. For tax year 2021, 26 states and the District of Columbia still have their own direct reporting requirements for the 1099-NEC not satisfied by CF/SF.

As the states continue to alter & publish direct reporting requirements, the Sovos regulatory analysis team will continuously update this page with the latest state requirements for Form 1099-NEC to help keep your organization ahead. 2021 Updates: AR, AZ, CT, GA, KS, KY, LA, MD, MO, MS, NE, NC, OH, OR, VA, VT, WI, WV.

Alabama

Alabama To Require 1099-NEC Reporting for TY 2020

The Alabama Department of Revenue recently confirmed by telephone that payers will be required to file Form 1099-NEC with the state in accordance with existing information return filing requirements. Alabama has not updated their guidance to date and is unlikely to do so prior to the state’s due date for 1099 forms. However, Form 1099-NEC will be among the required reporting for the taxable year, subject to the same filing threshold: if state withholding is reported or if the payment reported on the form represents $1,500 or more in Alabama taxable income the 1099-NEC must be reported directly to the state. The 1099-NEC will be due along with all other 1099 forms reported to Alabama on January 31, 2021.

When filing 1099 forms electronically, including Form 1099-NEC, filers must include a state ID, known in Alabama as a State Employer Account Number or Alabama Withholding Tax Account Number.

Colorado

Colorado to Accept Form 1099-NEC for Tax Year 2020

Colorado’s Department of Revenue has announced it will accept Form 1099-NEC for tax year 2020. Colorado will accept electronic filing through its Revenue Online service beginning January 5, 2021.  Form 1099s must be filed with the Department by February 1, 2021.

Colorado has yet to provide any revised specifications for 1099 form reporting for tax year 2020. Prior guidance, last revised in 2016, directs filers to use the federal 1220 standard for filing 1099s. Presuming Colorado does not provide contrary direction, the use of the federal 1220 standard means 1099s reported to Colorado will not need to provide a state tax identification number.

Colorado’s normal 1099 due date is January 31, but the states permits filing by the next business day when the thirty first falls on a weekend, as it will in 2021.  Colorado has not yet stated under what circumstances a 1099-NEC would be require direct filing with the state, but based on other 1099s, it is very likely the state will require it when reporting Colorado withholding.

Louisiana

Louisiana Waives 1099-NEC Reporting for Tax Year 2021

Louisiana recently published Revenue Information Bulletin 22-006 stating that the Department of Revenue is waiving the 1099-NEC filing requirement for tax year 2021 due to ongoing Hurricane Ida recovery efforts and the current COVID-19 case numbers in Louisiana. While the requirement is waived, payers may still file 1099-NEC records to the Department of Revenue. Further, those who choose to take advantage of this waiver this year must retain their 1099-NEC records, as those with filing obligations absent this waiver may need to provide them to the Department of Revenue upon request.

Generally, direction from Louisiana confirms the state will require the reporting of Form 1099-NEC when said form reports state withholding. Reporting of the form is not required when the form does not report withholding for Louisiana. Forms 1099 are due to Louisiana by January 31 for the prior tax year. Alternatively, filing through the Combined Federal/State Filing Program will fulfill filers’ reporting obligations with the state.

Mississippi

Mississippi Requires 1099-NEC to Information Return Filing Requirements for 2021

Mississippi recently released specifications confirming that the 1099-NEC is required for 2021, however there are changes to the filing specifications. The Mississippi specific modifications to federal filing specifications have been removed and the state will follow any new IRS file record specifications.

The threshold remains the same – payments that exceed $600, and the due date remains February 28 in electronic or paper form. The form must be filed directly with the state if there is state withholding or if there are payments in excess of $600, and therefore CFS does not satisfy this filing requirement.

As Mississippi requires 1099 reporting to be formatted using Publication 1220 specifications, there are no requirements or allocated field positions for state ID information.

If those two qualifying conditions are met relating to reportable nonemployee compensation, the information return must be filed with North Dakota including Form 1099-NEC.

North Dakota uses federal specifications found in Publication 1220 to report 1099 information to the state, and does not have an independent requirement for providing state ID information to file those records electronically.

Ohio

Ohio Confirms 1099-NEC Filing Requirement for Tax Year 2021

Ohio will require Form 1099-NEC and 1099-MISC  for tax year 2021 to be reported to the state when the form reports state withholding.  The form must be remitted either on paper or by scanned copy remitted by email.  Filing by the combined federal/state filing program will not fulfill the filing requirement.

Note that Ohio has issued an extension for filing Forms 1099-R and W-2 with the state.  Those forms will be considered timely if filed by March 2, 2022.  Again, filing by the combined federal/state filing program does not fulfill state filing obligations for Form 1099-R.

Wisconsin recently released guidance confirming the 1099-NEC filing requirement will remain the same for the 2021 tax year as it was for 2020. Wisconsin requires Form 1099-NEC be filed with the state if it is required to be filed federally. For the 1099-NEC, the federal threshold is $600 or more. Filing is required for payments made to Wisconsin residents regardless of the location services were performed, and for payments to nonresidents for services performed in Wisconsin. Wisconsin participates in the CFS program but requires that any form 1099 reporting Wisconsin withholding must be filed directly with the Department by January 31. Returns for the 2021 tax year will be due January 31, 2022.

Wisconsin filers are required to provide a 15-digit Wisconsin withholding tax account number (TAN).  A withholding number is acquired by filing an Application for Wisconsin Business Tax Registration, available via this link. Instructions for the application can be found here. If a filer does not have a Wisconsin withholding number and has never held one then the following placeholder should be used: 036888888888801.
