I received an email today from this company, efile4biz. The email said they were hired to provide 1099s for Bare. It also said the deadline to opt out and get a paper copy was 1/28/19. Why would they give notice on the 30th for a deadline that already passed. I prefer getting a hardcopy. Did anyone receive prior notice?
According to the IRS, it's an opt-IN policy -- they must have your consent; can't just unilaterally decide. I won't be getting one from BARE, but if it was me, I would email them back (cc:ing Bare) that I do NOT consent to an electronic copy.
Is Intellishop the only MSC that report the whole flat fee as Box #7 Non-Employee Compensation? I have not received any one else. Does Market Force only count fees? Coyle definitely does because I am way over $600 gross with them. How about ACL? I never receive any 1099 from them. Well, they hardly pay any fees at all, but lately, they have offered a few flat fee shops.,
I wish they would all be consistent in their 1099 reporting. And this certainly may curb my doing Intellishop this year.
