Applicable to

State agencies and institutions of higher education


Agencies and institutions often pay individuals who are not their employees for services rendered, and sometimes pay interest to individuals. If your agency or institution has paid a non-corporate payee a total of $600 or more for services or interest during a calendar year, you must report the payment(s) to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) on a Form 1099-Miscellaneous (MISC) or Form 1099-Interest Income (INT) and send Form 1099 Copy B to the payee. Generally, payments to corporations are not reportable.
Exception: Legal and medical services are reportable to the IRS for corporations. USAS will force 1099 Indicator A (Attorney Fees) or 6 (Medical Services) when a payment is made to a payee with ownership type C (Corporation), O (Out of State Corporation) or T (Texas Corporation) AND the comptroller object code used to make the payment has a default 1099 indicator A or 6 on the USAS D10 Profile (comptroller object profile). (See 2017 General Instructions for Certain Information Returns PDF regarding payments to corporations for legal and medical services.)

To assist agencies and institutions with filing 1099s for calendar year (CY) 2017, the Uniform Statewide Accounting System (USAS) captures 1099-related data and by request generates the following reports:
