The Department will retire North Carolina Form NC-1099-ITIN and Form NC-1099PS. Payers can now report compensation paid to a payee on new tax form, North Carolina Form NC-1099M, Compensation Paid to a Payee. Important: If a payer is required to complete a federal Form 1099-MISC or Form 1099-NEC to report the non-wage compensation paid to a payee, the payer does not have to complete Form NC-1099M.Semiweekly withholding filers can now file Form NC-5Q electronically via the Department’s eNC5Q Application.
