Office of Early Childhood


Each January, the Department of Social Services sends an IRS Form 1099 to all vendors informing them of their total income for the prior tax year. These vendors include counselors, attorneys, law enforcement agencies, child care providers, and many other types of vendors. 

DSS child care providers will receive IRS Form 1099 for tax year 2002 by January 31, 2003.  Providers receive this form because DSS made a payment to them in 2002, regardless of the month or year child care services were rendered.  This includes any backpayment a provider received for years prior to 2002.

This information is mailed to child care providers to assist them in filing their personal federal and state tax forms. State and federal taxes are not deducted from the amount shown on the 1099 form. 

Child care providers are considered self employed and are responsible for paying any applicable federal, state, or local taxes as well as any other costs associated with running their business. 

Tax year 2002 forms, for child care providers, include child care payments made via FAMIS and any CSIPS child care payments marked as fund code 49 (Block Grant) on the ZPAY screen.

Child care providers who received payment for child care subsidy eligible children under fund code 49 and child care subsidy payments with fund codes other than 49, alternative care, adoption subsidy, or other Protective Services categories, will receive two IRS 1099 forms for tax year 2002.  The separate IRS 1099 Forms will report different amounts the child care provider/facility received from each payment system (FAMIS/CSIPS).

Providers must combine the amounts from both 1099 forms to obtain the total dollars paid to them from the Department of Social Services. (View a sample of the FAMIS generated IRS 1099 Form in Adobe Acrobat).  The FAMIS IRS 1099 Form can be identified from the Children's Services IRS 1099 Form by checking for the Office of Early Childhood telephone number, 573-751-7546. 


The 1099 forms are mailed to the providers' addresses, as they appear in the FAMIS Resource Directory and the Children's Services Vendor Address databases as of December 31, 2002.
