How to print the 1099-NEC

Created on  | Last modified on 


Instructions to access, process, print 1099-NEC forms in Sage 50. In Sage 50 release 2023.0 and later, preprinted forms are no longer available. 1099 forms will be accessed via the payroll tax form selector for both payroll and non payroll customers.



The 1099-NEC form is used to report compensation given to a non employee. Starting with the year 2020, the IRS separated the reporting of payments to nonemployees from Form 1099-MISC and redesigned it. Further updates were made to the 1099-NEC for the year 2021.


For 1099-MISC or 1099-INT, see How to print 1099-MISC or 1099-INT forms.

Note: Starting with the 2023.0 release, the 1099 and 1096 forms will no longer be available to print from the Forms menu in Sage 50. However, all customers with a valid plan will have the ability to print 1099/1096 forms through Aatrix. Efiling will require an Aatrix efile subscription or manual filing with the IRS. 

The 1099-NEC Form was released for all customers on a payroll subscription via an Aatrix forms update on December 16, 2020. To check for the latest tax forms, browse to Reports & Forms, Forms, Tax Forms, then double-click Payroll Tax Forms. That will automatically install any Aatrix tax forms that are missing and will load the latest forms for you.

To print/e-file the 1099-NEC/1096 forms through Aatrix Forms:
  1. Go to Reports & Forms, Forms, Tax Forms, and double-click Payroll Tax Forms at the bottom.
  2. Select the desired 1099 form from the list of Available Forms (1096 forms are also generated as part of the 1099 filing).
  3. Select the correct filing year.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Follow the prompts to complete the form, filling in any required information.
