Filer's Name Group
Name line 1 is required; Name line 2 is optional. If you need to specify a Transfer (or Paying) Agent, use name line 2 and check the Transfer Agent indicator.
Filer's Name Control
The Filer's Name Control can be obtained only from the mail label on the Package 1099 that is mailed to most payers each December. Package 1099 contains Form 7018–C, Order Blank for Forms, and the mail label on the package contains a four (4) character name control. If a Package 1099 has not been received, you can determine your name control using the following simple rules or you can leave the field blank. For a business, use the first four significant characters of the business name. Disregard the word "the" when it is the first word of the name, unless there are only two words in the name. The only acceptable special characters are the dash (-) and the ampersand (&).
Filer's Address Group
Address line 1 must contain a delivery address (number, street, or Post Office Box). Address line 2 can contain an optional location address (room number, suite, or attention to). For domestic addresses, enter a City, State, Zip code, and optional Zip code extension.
Indicate your client's taxpayer identification number (TIN), optional routing and transit number (RTN), and optional office code. Make sure that the TIN Type field contains the correct TIN qualifier (EIN=Employer Identification Number, SSN=Social Security Number, or N/A=Not Available).
The following mutually exclusive indicators are specific to Form 1099-K:
