Form 1099-MISC - General Information NOT SENT With Return to IRS

The general information in Form 1099-MISC Miscellaneous Income is not e-filed with the return (this includes the Payer's information and the Recipient's Identification Number).

As this information is not e-filed, it will not cause any problems to leave the Payer’s name and Payer’s identification number fields blank (i.e. for situations where that information is unavailable or when there is a need to combine multiple amounts from more than one payer).

It will also not cause any problems to enter your Social Security Number (SSN) in the program instead of an Employer Identification Number (EIN).
