Along with all the other changes we have dealt with in 2020, the IRS has also changed how organizations report the money paid to independent contractors, or as they prefer to label it, Non-employee Compensation.

In past years, if your organization paid a person for services who was NOT an employee, you may have needed to file a 1099-Misc for the total amount given over the year. The 1099-Misc listed royalties, rents, and other miscellaneous items, but its most common use was for payments to independent contractors.

Starting in 2020, the IRS now requires payments to independent contractors are shown on a new form 1099-NEC (non-employee compensation) instead of the 1099-MISC (miscellaneous).
