Square’s online payroll service automatically generates and files Form 1099-MISC for you at the end of the year. When you get started with Square Payroll for contractors, you’re able to invite contractors to set up an online account so they can enter their own information, access pay stubs, and download Form 1099-MISC when it’s ready. You’re also able to download and print all forms from your Square Payroll dashboard for distribution.
Here are a few things to keep in mind:
Ensure all contractor payments for the year are recorded in Square Payroll by January 14, 2018 8:00 p.m. PST. Note: Applicable only to employers who have submitted at least one payroll with a pay date in 2017.
Square Payroll automatically generates Form 1099-MISC and files to the IRS.
Contractors can download Form 1099-MISC from their online accounts, or you can download the Forms yourself to distribute.
