      Client paid $9,600 to an attorney for business legal services.  Should we use 1099-NEC or use 1099-Misc box 10?

      Thanks.

      I would think if has a tax id# (not ssn) use 1099-MISC, if an individual with ssn as tax id, use 1099-NEC

      For legal service provided to your client, you should use 1099-NEC regardless of whether SSN or FED ID is provided.

      1099 MISC  is for g<span class=”inlinep”>ross proceeds paid to attorneys. This is usually when money is paid to the attorney for trust fund money/settlements. </span>
