1099 Information

When will my 1099 be mailed out?

Your 1099 was mailed on or before January 31.

Why did I receive a 1099?

You received a 1099 because you have received revenue from Legacy Reserves in the previous year. If you are a Royalty Interest Owner, the threshold for receiving a 1099-MISC is $10 or more. If you are Working Interest Owner, the threshold for receiving a 1099-NEC is $600 or more.

Why am I getting a 1099-MISC and a 1099-NEC?

Effective tax year 2020, the IRS is requiring that non-employee compensation be reported on Form, 1099-NEC. The most common reason for issuing both forms to the same owner occurs when an owner has both working interest (reported on 1099-NEC) and royalty interest (reported on 1099-MISC). For complete details, please visit irs.gov/instructions/i1099msc

What is a 1099-NEC?

Form 1099-NEC, Nonemployee Compensation, is used to report non-employee compensation, non-qualified deferred compensation (NQDC) and cash payments for fish. For complete details, please visit irs.gov/instructions/i1099misc
