Form 1099-INT, Interest Income
File Form 1099-INT, Interest Income, for each person:
- To whom you paid amounts reportable in boxes 1, 3, and 8 of at least $10 (or at least $600 of interest paid in the course of your trade or business described in the instructions for Box 1. Interest Income),
- For whom you withheld and paid any foreign tax on interest, or
- From whom you withheld (and did not refund) any federal income tax under the backup withholding rules regardless of the amount of the payment.
Report only interest payments made in the course of your trade or business including federal, state, and local government agencies and activities deemed nonprofit, or for which you were a nominee/middleman. Report tax-exempt interest, only on Form 1099-INT. You do not need to report tax-exempt interest that is original issue discount (OID). Report interest that is taxable OID on Form 1099-OID not on Form 1099-INT.
