  • You made the payment to someone who is not your employee.
  • You made the payment for services in the course of your trade or business (including government agencies and nonprofit organizations).
  • You made the payment to an individual, partnership, estate, or, in some cases, a corporation.
  • You made payments to the payee of at least $600 during the year.

Examples of nonemployee compensation that are reported in box 1 of Form 1099-NEC include:

  • Professional service fees, such as fees to attorneys (including corporations), accountants, architects, contractors, engineers, etc.
  • Payment for services, including payment for parts or materials used to perform the services if supplying the parts or materials was incidental to providing the service.
  • Director’s fees and other remuneration.
