While filing Form 1099-MISC or 1099-NEC, you will need to provide the state information if it is applicable to the recipient. State information needs to be reported in Boxes 5 to 7 of Form 1099-NEC/1099-MISC. Although the IRS doesn’t require you to fill in these boxes, your state agency might require a Form 1099-NEC copy. So, it is recommended that you fill in these details if you withheld state taxes.
Note: If there is no state income or state withholding tax for the recipient to report for the year, DO NOT enter any information in Boxes 5 to 7.
- Box 5 (State tax withheld): Enter the total state tax amount withheld from the contractor’s pay during the year.
- Box 6 (State/Payer’s No.): Select the state from the dropdown and enter the payer’s state no.
- Payer’s state no. is a withholding account number that you receive from your state agency to deposit withholding taxes to the state.
- Box 7 (State income): Enter the state income paid to the contractor.
