FAQ

How can I file a form 1099-misc and a 1099B together, if the 1099-misc is due by January 31st and 1099B won't arrive until February?
I’m guessing that you are the person who is receiving those forms. If that is the case, why are you concerned about filing them? The people (or companies) who made the payments to you are the ones who have to file them — what you get is a copy of what was filed by them. They are “information returns”, filed with the IRS and provided to you to furnish information.The only time you would have to file one of those is if there was tax withheld is a reported transaction, and you need to furnish the proof of withholding with your 1040. But that’s kind of unusual with those forms.Worst case, if you had withholding shown on both a 1099-MISC and a 1099-B, and you had to attach them both to your return, you would just have to wait to file your return. Not a problem unless you make it a problem.

How many people fill out Form 1099 each year?
There are a few different ways of estimating the numbers and thinking about this question. Data from the most recent years are not available—at least not from a reliable source with rigorous methodology—but here is what I can tell you:The most popular type of 1099 is Form 1099-MISC—the form used to report non-employee income including those for self-employed independent contractors (as well as various other types of “miscellaneous” income)Since 2015, there have been just under 16 million self-employed workers (including incorporated and unincorporated contractor businesses). And the data from the BLS seems to suggest this number has been largely consistent from one year to the next: Table A-9. Selected employment indicatorsNow, the total number of 1099-MISC forms has been inching up each year—along with W-2 form filings—and may have surpassed 100 million filing forms. RE: Evaluating the Growth of the 1099 Workforce But this data only goes to 2014 because, again, it’s hard to find reliable data from recent tax years.In terms of the total number of Form 1099s, you’d have to include Interest and Dividend 1099 forms, real estate and rental income, health and education savings accounts, retirement accounts, etc. I’m sure the total number of all 1099 forms surely ranges in the hundreds of millions.Finally, not everybody who is supposed to get a 1099 form gets one. So if you’re asking about the total number of freelancers, the estimates range from about 7.6 million people who primarily rely on self-employed 1099 income and 53 million people who have some type of supplemental income.If you’re someone who’s responsible for filing Form 1099s to the IRS and payee/recipients, I recommend Advanced Micro Solutions for most small-to-medium accounting service needs. It’s basic but very intuitive and cheap.$79 1099 Software Filer & W2 Software for Small Businesses
Did you fill out the form "1099 misc"? If so, for what purpose? Within the context of work, is it like a contract?
One of the most common reasons you’d receive tax form 1099-MISC is if you are self-employed or did work as an independent contractor during the previous year. The IRS refers to this as “non-employee compensation.”In most circumstances, your clients are required to issue Form 1099-MISC when they pay you $600 or more in any year.As a self employed person you are required to report your self employment income if the amount you receive from all sources totals $400 or more. In this situation, the process of filing your taxes is a little different than a taxpayer who only receives regular employment income reported on a W-2.
How do I know if I should give out a 1099-MISC or a W-2?
First of all, what you “give out” are copies of whatever you’ve filed with the IRS. So what did you file? If you’re asking which you should file . . .You file a W-2 with respect to your employees, and a 1099-MISC to report certain types of payments that you’ve made in the course of your business, including payments to non-e players who you’ve paid to do work for you.Do you have a business? Do you have employees? Did you withhold taxes from their paychecks, and pay employment taxes? Did you file your Form 940 and Forms 941? If the answers are yes, yes, no, no, then get yourself a good accountant or attorney who can tell you what to do, and help you do it.If you have no employees, and all of your workers are supposedly “independent contractors”, then you should file 1099’s, but you should still get yourself a better accountant or attorney, because the’re probably employees and you have bigger problems.

How do can I ask federal and california to take taxes out of the income I make on my 1099 MISC?
Generally, when you work for someone as an employee, that employee-employer relationship puts the burden on the employer to withhold and submit payroll taxes on your behalf.  The form they issue you at the end of year to file your taxes is called a W-2 Form.However, as an independent contractor, no such relationship, legal obligation or withholding/submission mechanism exists.  Instead of receiving a W-2, you'll receive a 1099.  To put in bluntly, you're on your own, buddy.  The equivalent tax submission mechanism comes in the form of you making estimated payments to the federal and state governments on a quarterly basis.  This might be a little tricky, if you have no tax background.Of course, the first and obvious question becomes, "How much do I pay?"The best way to do this is to look at your prior year's tax return.   If your net earnings (i.e. revenue minus business expenses) for last year were $100K and wound up paying $35K for federal and $10K for state, then your federal and state tax rates should be around 35% and 10%, respectively.  Tally up your earnings for each calendar quarter and apply those percentages appropriately.  That is your "estimated" tax liability for the quarter.  Now, make your payment."What happens if I guess wrong?"Not to panic.  You will inevitably guess wrong.  I'm an accountant and I'll guess wrong!  When you file your tax return from the year, you will essentially tabulate your federal and state tax liabilities for the year.  The four estimated payments will be deducted from that liability and you should either pay or owe an insignificant amount to "true up" your account."Where do I get the forms to make my estimated payment?"For federal, the form, along with the instructions are here.  The form is called 1040-ES.http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f... For the state of California, the form, the form is here.  The form is called 540-ES.https://www.ftb.ca.gov/forms/201... Full disclosure: With that said, I am not a tax professional.  You should seek the advice of one, to help guide you in filling out these forms and establishing your effective tax rates.  The advice above is worth what you paid for it. :)
