Property managers can meet their state’s tax requirements by using Rentec’s new 1099-MISC state e-filing features to automatically submit tax forms online. New deadlines for 1099-MISC tax reporting means that you need to start getting your papers together now for the upcoming tax season.
You must file a 1099-MISC form for anyone who was paid more than $600 to in the course of a year that is NOT a corporation. For property managers, they typically need to file 1099s for owners and independant contractors like repair men, landscapers, attorneys, etc.
New for 2016: State Tax Reporting for 1099s
If your state requires 1099-MISC filing, we’re making your life easier this year.
Our partnership with Nelco to electronically file 1099s now includes state reporting. If you live in any of the following states, you can opt to have Rentec and Nelco automatically send the 1099s to your state tax agency so you don’t have to:
- New Jersey
- New Mexico
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- Washington, D.C.
- West Virginia
Enabling state reporting is easy. Just login and go to Settings, Your Contact Information. Enter your state tax id, and electronically file your 1099s as normal. When you go to electronically file your 1099s, the state forms will now be automatically done as well. If you don’t want to report to the state, or prefer to do this manually, you can leave the state tax id field blank.
Some states require reconciliation forms or summary forms when submitting 1099-MISC forms electronically, while other states do not. The states that do not have reconciliation form filing requirements, might still have state filing requirements. If a reconciliation form is required to file, you will be prompted to enter any necessary data to properly submit the form from within the software. It might sound confusing, but Nelco software is designed to capture the information and make it easier for Rentec Direct clients.
