IRS Reiterates That Form 1099 Not Required For Freight Services

The IRS has issued another item of guidance stating that Form 1099 need not be issued for income from freight services.  Treas. Reg. 1.6041-3(c) exempts payments for "freight services" from the general requirement for payors to issue Form 1099 to independent contractors and others with which they do business.  Thus, trucking companies need not issue Form 1099s to owner-operators that are under lease for freight hauling services.  The same rule applies to farmers that make payments in connection with the trucking or hauling of livestock, grain or other farm products - no Form 1099 is required.  CCM 20151002F (Jun. 6, 2014).
