How many people fill out Form 1099 each year?
There are a few different ways of estimating the numbers and thinking about this question. Data from the most recent years are not available—at least not from a reliable source with rigorous methodology—but here is what I can tell you:The most popular type of 1099 is Form 1099-MISC—the form used to report non-employee income including those for self-employed independent contractors (as well as various other types of “miscellaneous” income)Since 2015, there have been just under 16 million self-employed workers (including incorporated and unincorporated contractor businesses). And the data from the BLS seems to suggest this number has been largely consistent from one year to the next: Table A-9. Selected employment indicatorsNow, the total number of 1099-MISC forms has been inching up each year—along with W-2 form filings—and may have surpassed 100 million filing forms. RE: Evaluating the Growth of the 1099 Workforce But this data only goes to 2014 because, again, it’s hard to find reliable data from recent tax years.In terms of the total number of Form 1099s, you’d have to include Interest and Dividend 1099 forms, real estate and rental income, health and education savings accounts, retirement accounts, etc. I’m sure the total number of all 1099 forms surely ranges in the hundreds of millions.Finally, not everybody who is supposed to get a 1099 form gets one. So if you’re asking about the total number of freelancers, the estimates range from about 7.6 million people who primarily rely on self-employed 1099 income and 53 million people who have some type of supplemental income.If you’re someone who’s responsible for filing Form 1099s to the IRS and payee/recipients, I recommend Advanced Micro Solutions for most small-to-medium accounting service needs. It’s basic but very intuitive and cheap.$79 1099 Software Filer & W2 Software for Small Businesses

Did you fill out the form "1099 misc"? If so, for what purpose? Within the context of work, is it like a contract?
One of the most common reasons you’d receive tax form 1099-MISC is if you are self-employed or did work as an independent contractor during the previous year. The IRS refers to this as “non-employee compensation.”In most circumstances, your clients are required to issue Form 1099-MISC when they pay you $600 or more in any year.As a self employed person you are required to report your self employment income if the amount you receive from all sources totals $400 or more. In this situation, the process of filing your taxes is a little different than a taxpayer who only receives regular employment income reported on a W-2.

How much does it cost to outsource the printing and filing of 5000 1099 Misc forms?
Most of the larger places in the US will cost you around $4-6 per employee. 5000 is a lot, so I'm sure you'll find someone who will negotiate. So to do it "right" and full-service from a named payroll company, I'm guessing $20,000.Now retail, maybe $2-3 of that is for e-filing services and $2-3 is for printing/mailing. So if employees are printing their own, getting emails, or getting links to a secure FTP site, then maybe you can save half of that by not mailing. Check the rules, but that's pretty common. For the other half, I'd bet plenty of companies have really good deals, including the IRS--I'd bet money they allow you upload a 5,000 line CSV for free or next to it.Of course there's India and stuff--real outsourcing--but I'd have to quintuple check the legalities of sending employee information across international lines, HIPAA and all that. And even if an international outsource printed and enveloped it, you'd have to have it flown here to ship, and you'd have to solve the e-file aspect. As with everything it's a trade-off of how much risk you want to pay to transfer.So negotiating in the real world, I'd bet $10,000 to do it right. These are guesstimates--not quite guesses, but not quite estimates, but a start for your thoughts. Hopefully a payroll accountant will strike me down.

Can I use broker statements to fill out form 8949 instead of a 1099-B?
Yes you can. Should you? Perhaps, but remember that the 1099 is what the IRS is going to receive. There could be differences.You may receive a 1099 which is missing basis information. You will indicate that, and use your records to fill in the missing information.My suggestion is to use the 1099, cross-referencing to your statements.
