Important Sage 100 1099 Changes

Betsy Frank January 8, 2021Sage 100

As you may be aware, there has been a significant change to 1099 filing this year, in the addition of 1099 NEC. The usual 1099 Misc form has also been slightly adjusted. The new 1099 NEC forms need to be filed with the IRS by 2/1/21.

Sage has created updates for Sage 100 that account for these changes, and they are included in the AP 1099 process. This update is available for versions 2018, 2019, and 2020. Older versions of Sage 100 are not getting this update, as those versions are not officially supported by Sage.
