How to Request the Data Set Report (DAFR7950)

Agencies may choose to complete their 1099 processing internally instead of using USAS data. These instructions are for agencies that choose to use USAS data. Agencies should run the DAFR7950 one time only, and only after the agency has reviewed and corrected all transactions on the DAFR7940.

Electronic Data Files or Hard Copies?

The DAFR7950 data set report generates 1099 data for agencies to send to the IRS. Your agency can choose to receive this data in one of two filing formats:

Data file

If you choose to receive the 1099 data file, you must still create and send a hard copy form to the payee. Also, this data file is not formatted for the IRS FIRE system. This option is often used by agencies that are combining their USAS data with payment data from local funds.

Hard copy

If you choose to receive 1099 data in hard copy form, USAS will generate two copies of Copy B. Send one Copy B to the payee and retain the other for your files. If you have fewer than 250 forms and are not transmitting electronically, your agency must generate Copy A to send along with Form 1096 to the IRS. For more information, See Section E: “Filing Returns with the IRS” in General Instructions for Certain Information Returns PDF.

If you choose to receive the hard copy forms, you will also receive the IRS Reportable Data File (IRSRDF) for use when filing electronically with IRS. The IRSRDF is formatted for the FIRE system.

Request the DAFR7950

To request the DAFR7950, follow all the steps to request the DAFR7940 verification report on the USAS Report Request Profile (91) screen, except:

  • Enter DAFR7950 in the REPORT ID field.
  • Use the SPECIAL SELECT 1 field* to choose the preferred filing format for your data.

*The next section provides the procedure for using the SPECIAL SELECT 1 field on the USAS Report Request Profile (91) screen to choose the preferred filing format for your data.

The table below provides the values to be entered in the SPECIAL SELECT 1 field to request the DAFR7950 in either of the two filing format options:

File Format Request Procedure
Option 1: Request a USAS-generated 1099 Data File only. Agencies paying out of state and local funds combine their USAS information with other payment information to comprehensively capture all 1099-reportable information. This file is different from the IRS Reportable Date File (see Option 2).
  1. Enter F in the SPECIAL SELECT 1 field.
  2. Enter one of the following valid values in the SPECIAL SELECT 2 field:
    • B for interest and miscellaneous data
    • I for interest only
    • M for miscellaneous data only
  3. Enter A in the STATUS CODE field.
Note: If you request a USAS-generated 1099 data file (SPECIAL SELECT 1 = F):
  • The 1099 forms are not generated by USAS
  • An IRS Reportable Data File (IRSRDF) is not created
It is your agency’s responsibility to:
  • Review the USAS information to produce 1099 forms
  • Produce an IRSRDF based on payments the agency determines are reportable
Option 2: Request 1099 Hard Copies (Form 1099-MISC and Form 1099-INT).
  1. Enter R in the SPECIAL SELECT 1 field. Entry in SPECIAL SELECT 2 is not allowed.
  2. Enter A in the STATUS CODE field.
Note: The R for hard copy defaults to M after the batch cycle has processed. The M indicates that your agency will receive the IRSRDF by the IRS determined deadline. See Cancelling an IRS Reportable Data File IRSRDF below if you do not wish to receive the IRSRDF.

Filing with the IRS

Agencies with 250 or more returns must file electronically with the IRS through the FIRE system.

Agencies filing fewer than 250 forms may choose to either file electronically or file hard copies with the IRS. Agencies that choose to file hard copies must create Copy A and submit with a Form 1096.

Cancelling an IRS Reportable Data File (IRSRDF)

If you do not want to receive a copy of the IRSRDF after receiving your hard copy forms from the Comptroller’s office (due to filing fewer than 250 Forms 1099), you must:

  • Replace M with R in the SPECIAL SELECT 1 field on the USAS 91 Report Request Profile screen
  • Replace A with I in the STATUS CODE field on the USAS 91 Report Request Profile screen (inactivating the request so it doesn’t run again)
  • Press F6 to process inactivation and update your 91 Profile DAFR7950 Report Request

This action notifies Comptroller’s office staff that your agency does not want an IRSRDF. The defaults will then appear as R in the SPECIAL SELECT 1 field and I in the STATUS CODE field.
