Montana follows IRS 1099 due dates for non-withholding filing in all cases. Montana does not mandate electronic filing but allows for the extended federal due dates.
You do not need a Montana withholding account if the Forms 1099 you are submitting have no withholding. File these Forms 1099 with Federal Form 1096.

Truncated Forms W-2 and 1099
As a safeguard against identity theft, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) allows payers to truncate, or shorten, the payee’s taxpayer identification number (SSN, FEIN, or ITIN) on the copy of Form W-2 or 1099 that the payer gives to the payee.
- Payers may not truncate the payee’s Social Security Number on any forms filed with the Montana Department of Revenue, IRS, or Social Security Administration
- Payers may not truncate their own identification number on any forms given to the payee or filed with the Montana Department of Revenue, IRS, or Social Security Administration
If the forms with truncated information are incorrectly submitted to the Montana Department of Revenue, you may be asked to resubmit them using the correct format.
