Beginning with tax year 2022, Arbiter Pay is required by the IRS under the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 to issue 1099s to ALL officials and workers who have been paid $600 or more through Arbiter Pay. This means payors can no longer opt-out of Arbiter Pay issuing 1099s on their behalf. Please keep in mind that all payors are still responsible for issuing 1099s for any payments made outside of Arbiter Pay.
