Electronic 1099-MISC

Districts required to file 250 or more information returns during the year, must file electronically. The 250-or-more requirement applies separately to each type of form. For example, if the district files 500 Forms 1099 and 100 Forms 1099-A, the district must file Forms 1099 electronically but is not required to file Forms 1099-A electronically. The electronic filing requirement does not apply if the district applies for and receives a hardship waiver.
