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

When filling out Form 1099-B, what date do I put as the "date acquired" if I inherited a UTMA account?
A2A.When you say you “inherited a UTMA”, I assume that what you mean is that you received an inheritance from a deceased relative while you were still a minor, and those assets were placed into a managed account per the Uniform Transfer to Minors Act. Under UTMA, you owned that account as of the date of creation, and your original basis in that account is the value of your inheritance at the time.A UTMA account is typically like any other investment account, the account custodian over the years will have been making investments on your behalf and you should have been filing tax returns reporting interest, dividends, and capital gains and losses from that account over the years - which you may not have known. Depending on the transactions in your account over the years, the acquisition dates may be variable, as are the nature of the gains or losses that you have from the account.I'm not sure why you would be filling out a 1099-B, a 1099-B is an information return provided by the financial institution that manages the account, and the detailed information for each transaction would be included on that statement. If the account custodian never made any transactions on your behalf apart from the initial purchase that started the account, then your date acquired would be the date that the account was created, but that isn't the way that UTMA accounts are managed in my experience.I'd suggest that you contact the financial institution that managed the account and get a complete set of year-end statements, and then consult a tax professional to make sure that your tax returns for prior years are in order and to walk you through this years.
