Know Your Forms

W-2 Forms

  • The form employers use to report yearly wage and withholding information for employees.
  • An employee is defined as anyone who performs services for an employer and the employer can control what will be done and how it will be done (Even employees with freedom of action).
  • File to the SSA & Employees.

1099 Forms

  • The form businesses use to report miscellaneous income. (e.g. contract or freelance worker whom you paid at least $600 during the year, as well as fees, royalties, commissions and rental income).
  • An individual is considered an independent contractor if the payer has the right to control or direct only the result of the work and not how it will be done.
  • File to IRS & Recipients.

1095-C Forms

  • The form employers use to report health coverage for employees (1095-B for self-insured employers with fewer than 50 full-time employees).
  • Full-time employees are defined as those who worked an average of at least 30 hours per week or 130 service hours in a calendar month.
  • This year two states (Washington DC and New Jersey) are now requiring the 1095-C to be filed.
  • File to IRS & Recipients.
