How to Get a 1099-MISC Form — Quick Guide

The 1099 form from the IRS is a legal document with which you report how much money you paid to people for some odd/occasional jobs for you. It’s important to keep in mind that you must list only those expenses spent on workers who aren’t your regular employees.
This can include:

  • Rental payments.
  • Attorney payments.
  • Award/prize money.
  • Money paid for freelance work.
  • Expenses related to healthcare.

You can check the full list here. But how to get a 1099 form? There are two ways; let’s examine each one.

PDFLiner

Here’s what to do:

And voilà: the service will browse this document plus all the forms that start with the 1099 code. Thus you’ll be able to use the 1099-MISC form to file it today.

But there’s more you can gain from PDFLiner. The service also allows you to edit PDF documents online. For free. You don’t need tools like MS Office or advanced Acrobat Reader to fill it out or create a 1099 form from scratch.

After that, you can download a document to print it or share it online with anyone: your boss, lawyer, spouse, employees, etc. Besides, there’s an e-signature tool and a cloud backup feature.

Plus, if you do it for the first time, PDFLiner offers an easy guide on how to fill out a 1099-MISC form for employees.

IRS

For this method, you need the IRS official website.


You’ll instantly get the PDF, but there’s a major downside — the IRS provides no tools for filling out the form. You will need freeware applications like Apache OpenOffice, Calligra, and other similar tools to do the job if you have no editing software. Therefore, using the PDFLIner service is more quick and straightforward.
