Form 1099-PATR Will Become a “Continuous Use” Form

Published July 8, 2022

Form 1099-PATR, Taxable Distributions Received From Cooperatives, is going to join the group of 1099-series information returns which operate as “continuous use” forms because their design and content are not expected to change from year to year. Conversion from an annual form to a continuous-use form means that changes in the form aren’t anticipated to occur annually so the IRS would revise the form only if necessary to conform to a major change such as a requirement in new federal legislation. Forms 1099-MISC, -NEC, -INT, -DIV, -K and other 1099s and 1098s have already become continuous-use forms. On a paper version of the form or a recipient statement, the filer fills in the calendar year along with the reportable information (so new supplies of paper printable forms aren’t necessarily required every year).
