Distribute 1099 forms to your contractors

Gusto is a paperless company, and therefore does not offer a service to print and mail 1099 forms. Below are several different methods on how you can distribute 1099s to your contractors. We highly recommend double-checking the information before distributing.

Method 1: Enable your contractors online access to their Gusto accounts so that they can obtain their 1099 forms electronically. These forms will be available to them in mid-January.

Method 2: Download individual 1099s, and distribute them to specific contractors:

  1. Click the People tab.
  2. Click the contractor's name.
  3. Under Contractor Forms, click 1099: Miscellaneous Income for the applicable year. This will be available for you in early January.
  4. Download this form and distribute the 1099 to your contractor.

Method 3: Print the entire 1099 PDF bundle, and distribute them to all contractors:

  1. Click the Documents tab.
  2. Click 1099-MISC for the applicable year. This will be available for you in early January.
  3. Download, print, and distribute the 1099s to your contractors.

Note: Contractors must consent to receiving 1099s electronically instead of a paper copy. If a contractor prefers to receive the 1099 on paper, he/she has the right to request that from the company. If this is the case, refer to methods 2 or 3 for distribution."
