1099 vs W-2

Sometimes the line between an independent contractor and an employee is fuzzy. It’s important to know the difference in order to comply with IRS tax rules. Take an easy quiz to determine whether your worker needs a 1099 or W2.

Log completed work

When you pay a contractor for labor, you’ll need to track it on a 1099 to stay compliant. QuickBooks Online Plus and QuickBooks Online Advanced tracks every payment you make to contractors and then creates ready-to-send 1099 forms at tax time.

Separate vendor expenses

If you pay a contractor or vendor for equipment rentals or supplies, QuickBooks can track those as a separate expense. Keeping payments to contractors separate from expenses makes it easy to issue and file accurate 1099 forms for the tax year.
