New Rules Require Rental Property Owners to Issue 1099s - Emil Estafanous, CPA : Emil Estafanous, CPA

New Rules Require Rental Property Owners to Issue 1099s

The recently enacted Small Business Jobs Act, P.L. 111-240, contained one sustenance that might have transient a notice of taxpayers who possess let property, though will impact them starting in January. Under a provision, owners of skill who accept let income will be compulsory to emanate Forms 1099 to use providers for payments of $600 or some-more during a year.

The act subjects recipients of let income from genuine estate to a same information-reporting mandate as taxpayers intent in a trade or business. Thus, let income recipients creation payments of $600 or some-more to a use provider in a march of earning let income are compulsory to yield an information lapse (typically, Form 1099-MISC, Miscellaneous Income) to a IRS and to a use provider. This sustenance will request to payments finished after Dec 31, 2010, and will cover, for example, payments finished to plumbers, painters or accountants in a march of earning a let income.

While let skill owners will not indeed emanate a compulsory 1099s until early 2012, they need to start gripping adequate annals of payments starting Jan 1, 2011, so they will be prepared to emanate scold 1099s. They will also need to obtain a name, chateau and taxpayer marker series of a use provider, regulating Form W-9 or a identical form.


The law provides an difference for people who can uncover that a requirement will emanate a hardship for them. The IRS is destined to emanate regulations on this, though has not finished so yet, so there is now no superintendence on what constitutes sufficient hardship to validate for a difference or how a taxpayer would denote that hardship.

The law also contains an difference for people who accept let income of “not some-more than a minimal amount.” Again, a IRS is destined to emanate regulations to establish what constitutes “not some-more than a minimal amount” though has not finished so yet.

If such superintendence is not stirring before Jan 1, all people who accept let income should start gripping annals of payments to use providers so they are prepared to emanate 1099s in 2012.

The law also contains an difference for members of a troops or employees of a comprehension village if almost all their let income comes from renting their principal chateau on a proxy basis.

Information Return Penalties

Taxpayers should also be wakeful that in further to formulating a new stating requirement, a act increases a penalties for disaster to record a scold information return. The first-tier chastisement increases from $15 to $30; a second-tier chastisement increases from $30 to $60; and a third-tier chastisement increases from $50 to $100. For tiny business filers (with normal annual sum profits underneath $5 million), a calendar-year limit increases from $25,000 to $75,000 for a first-tier penalty; from $50,000 to $200,000 for a second-tier penalty; and from $100,000 to $500,000 for a third-tier penalty. The smallest chastisement for any disaster due to conscious negligence increases from $100 to $250.

The increasing penalties request to information earnings compulsory to be filed on or after Jan 1, 2011.

Expanded 1099 Reporting After 2011

Currently, payments to companies are excepted from a 1099 information stating requirements, though starting for payments after Dec 31, 2011, businesses (including, now, people who accept let income) will be compulsory to record an information lapse for all payments aggregating $600 or some-more in a calendar year to a singular payee, including companies (other than a payee that is a tax-exempt corporation). This change was finished by a Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, P.L. 111-148, that was enacted in March. That act also stretched a information stating mandate to embody sum deduction paid in care for property.
