Free 1099 Forms from the IRS-Independent Contractors

You can receive free 1099-MISC forms from the IRS to send to your independent contractors. If you paid an individual who was not an employee more that $600 in 2017, you may need to file the 1099-MISC forms and the transmittal Form 1096 to the IRS by the end of January 2019. For detailed information on who is an independent contractor, check out Church Accounting-The How-To Guide for Small & Growing Churches.

The forms received from the IRS are the manual type with several layers. If you have more than a dozen to send, you may prefer the computer type compatible with your accounting system that you can buy from the office supply store.

To get the free 1099 forms, remember:

Order immediately so they can get to you before the 1/31/19 deadline.

Order the 2018 version for this year and go ahead and order the 2019 version for next year, so you'll have them.

Don't forget the Transmittal- Form 1096, order two copies of each year, just in case you make a mistake.

The filing deadline for the Transmittal Form 1096 must be filed by January 31.


If possible, mail them to the independent contractors as soon as possible. If you need to make any changes, you can do so before the transmittal must be submitted on January 31.
