Representatives may affiliate with and work for multiple firms or business entities
concurrently. If representatives want to receive statements reporting only the fees
received directly as employees of an entity, the entity must register with us using
Form SSA-1694 (Request for Business Entity Taxpayer Information).
When an entity successfully registers with us, we will send Form 1099-MISC on an annual
basis to employees affiliated with an entity who registered using the SSA-1694. We
will send Form 1099-NEC on an annual basis to representatives recognized in our records
as sole proprietors or representatives affiliated with entities who are not registered
with us. Both the 1099-MISC and the 1099-NEC will summarize direct payments of $600
or more that we made to representatives for services rendered in the previous tax
The business entity, or a representative affiliated with the entity, may take action
to submit a completed SSA-1694. To ensure quick and timely processing of the SSA-1694,
the information on the form should be accurate and completed in its entirety.
