Information return

A document showing reportable transactions or compensation during the calendar year that companies must file with the IRS. Companies required to file information returns with the IRS must also give statements to the other party to the transaction. These include nonemployees whose income is reported on Form 1099-NEC.

For details on these filings, see IRS Guide To Information Returns. Failing to properly make these filings on time leads to IRS penalties.
