Form 1099 – Payment to U.S Suppliers
What you should know about Form 1099 – Payments to U.S Suppliers
- A U.S individual or company that paid a single supplier or an individual who fully controls an LLC (i.e. neither a company nor an LLC with two or more partners), who is a U.S citizen or resident more than $600 in ordinary payments or $10 in interest payments, is required to file Form 1099 for each such supplier by January 31st.
- This due date cannot be extended.
- In practice, we recommend including any payment to any LLC that exceeds $600, since it is often unknown whether an LLC is fully owned or held by partners.
- Throughout the year, one must send the suppliers a W9 Form for them to fill out, sign and send back to you.
- A W9 Form indicates that the filer is a U.S citizen or resident, his tax classification (Individual, S-Corp, C-Corp, LLC etc.), his address and taxpayer identification number.
- If this date falls on a Federal U.S holiday or the weekend, this date is postponed to the following day.
