New Rule for Filing 1099s: The IRS rule TFA 23O1 reduces the electronic filing requirement from a threshold of 250 Information Returns down to 10.
Yes, you read that correctly. If you file more than 10 Information Returns after January 1, 2024, you are now required to submit those forms electronically. Employers must calculate the total number of Information Returns to determine if they meet the threshold, including 1099s, W-2s, 1098s, etc.
This means if you have a total of 4 Form 1098s and a total of 6 Form 1099-NEC, you must file electronically. All forms must be submitted to the appropriate party and through the IRS site utilizing IRIS or the “Information Returns Intake System” by the due date.
