How can we help?

View Form 1099

Gusto files electronic 1099-MISC forms for all contractors who have been paid through Gusto within the calendar year. Gusto will only fill out Box 7 (non-employee compensation), but there are several other boxes on the form. 

If you would like to file the 1099 forms outside of Gusto, email us at with your business name and the impacted contractors. You can also let us know when you're completing the end of year checklist, which will appear on the company dashboard.

To view a copy of the 1099-MISC that we’ve prepared for you, follow these steps:

  1. Click the Documents tab.
  2. In the Company tab, click Form 1099-MISC: [Year] for the applicable year.
  3. The 1099 package will be available for payroll administrators to review in early January, and then made available to contractors later in the month.

Note: We don't file the cover sheet Form 1096 since this is only a requirement for paper filings. The descriptions of the boxes are simplified and there are other things to consider when filing out each box. Learn more about how to fill out Form 1099-MISC from the instructions provided by the IRS.
