User and Service Bureau Agencies included within the Statewide Federal Tax Identification Number 71-0847443 are responsible for providing accurate information for vendors and vendor payments for those vendors who must be reported on IRS Forms 1099-G, 1099-MISC and 1099-NEC to the Department of Finance and Administration-Office of Accounting (DFA-OA).

User and Service Bureau Agencies that operate Independent Programs with their own individually assigned tax identification number are responsible for all tasks necessary to report IRS Form 1099’s under that assigned program Tax Identification Number.
Reporting Agencies cannot use the Statewide Federal Identification Number and are responsible to create and report IRS Form 1099 under their own assigned Tax Identification Number. Reporting Agencies may use statewide vendor numbers, but these payments and vendors will automatically be excluded from statewide reporting for 1099 purposes by agency.
