New Mexico Releases W-2 and 1099 Filing Instructions for 2018

New Mexico has released “Income and Withholding Information Return and Filing Methods 2018,” FYI-330.  This document provides direction to payors filing annual wage and tax information reporting returns to the state.  The document details significant changes to the 1099 and W-2 filing processes. 

New Mexico will now accept 1099 and W-2 returns through its new Taxpayer Access Portal (TAP).  Previously, 1099s could only be electronically filed through the Combined Federal/State Filing Program (CFS).  Now, CFS remains a valid means of filing for all 1099s, but New Mexico’s TAP provides an alternative means of electronic reporting.  

The document also provides specifications for 1099 and W-2 reporting.  New Mexico continues to largely follow the federal specification with minor modifications; these modifications themselves have not changed from the prior year’s.

To review FYI-330, [follow this link|], select “publications,” and then “FYIs,” “300 Series,” and then finally “FYI-330.”
