The IRS requires the payer's full ID number on the 1099. You may show only the last 4 of the recipient's SSN.

Mind if I piggyback on this thread with my own question? I'm currently issuing 1099s as Treasurer of a nonprofit. If I only need to show the last 4 digits of the recipient's SSN, do *I* need to have any more than the last 4 digits?

would rather have the minimum information legally necessary
