October 14, 2020

The Iowa Department of Revenue recently published an updated version of Publication 44-082, Electronic Reporting of Wage and Tax Statements and Information Returns. This publication provides instructions, information, and specifications for submitting W-2 and 1099 records to the Department electronically.

Primarily the updates to these specifications and instructions involves the acceptance of Form 1099-NEC through the Iowa electronic filing system. However, please note this is not a firm indication that the form is required for TY 2020 as the state has yet to publish guidance on that filing requirement to-date.
