IRS 1099 Forms Instructions

Video transcription

I'm Miranda Chook, a CPA and we're going to talk about 1099 forms. Now 1099 forms are information returns and there are many types of 1099 forms. Before we get into some of those examples, the filing deadline is February 15th for the 2008 tax year so that means payers need to prepare these information returns and send them to recipients by February 15th and a copy also to the IRS. Now some of the more common 1099 forms are 1099INT or for interest that you may receive from banks and other financial institutions. 1099DIV for dividends received on stocks or mutual funds. There's a 1099MSA for medical savings accounts and there's a 1099R for excess deferrals or contributions, distributions from a pension fund or IRA. And as mentioned, there are many different types of forms and the instructions for each form of course differ slightly for each one so please check with an experienced financial adviser to see how this affects your specific circumstances.
