1099-NEC Changes for Tax Year 2021

The IRS changed the requirements for Form 1099-NEC submissions for tax year 2021. The following is a brief overview of these changes:

  • The format of Form 1099-NEC has been updated for tax year 2021.
    • The height of the form has been reduced so it can accommodate three-per-page forms.
    • Only one address line is printed for the recipient’s street address.

As a result of these IRS changes, we have made changes to Trust and AP in Version 2021. You must update Trust and AP to Version 2021 (Build 20.6.6) or later before printing Form 1099-NEC for tax year 2021; these changes will not be added to Version 2020 or prior. To update, in the Quick Launch, search for and select Check for Updates.
