Release Notes

The 1099 Pro Service Bureau will not include the 1099-NEC as part of the Combined Federal State Filing Program (CF/SF).  In order to perform 1099-NEC state filing, via the Service Bureau, customers must purchase the additional 1099-NEC state filing service (details here).

Many states, that implemented their own 1099-NEC filing mandates, are still requiring state direct filing as opposed to allowing filers to use the IRS CF/SF Program.  This is because most states have already built their reporting portals and direct reporting provides the data to states earlier in the year which is a critical tool in combating tax fraud.
