The IRS issued new reporting regulations for tax year 2011 1099-MISC form. These regulations will exclude some forms of payments from the 1099-MISC form; instead, the payments will be reported on the new third party form 1099-K.
If you have made payments to vendors in tax year 2011 using cash or checks, this does NOT apply to you. If, however, you used other forms of payment (credit/debit cards, gift cards and third-party payment services like PayPal),Â you will only need to report certain types of transactions and exclude others.
IntuitÂźÂ is aware of these compliance changes and has updated theÂ 1099 Wizard inÂ QuickBooksÂźÂ for Windows 2012 andÂ QuickBooks for Mac 2012 to include payment exclusion features to comply with the 1099-MISC regulation changes.
