I am preparing the 1099...
I am preparing the 1099 forms for my contractors. I lived in Texas 10 months and the last two months of 2017 moved to California.
While preparing the forms I ran into two dilemmas:
Shall I use my California address as the payer's address? In Texas, I have a "mailbox" type of address left.
Also, which address of the two shall I send the1096 form?
Thank you

For federal tax purposes - that makes no difference - you may use either address - whatever is convenient for you.

But if services were provided in California - there might be additional filing

Services were provided in Texas. So if I use the Texas address the filing address for 1096 should be the one to Texas too. IS that correct?

For federal tax purposes - that makes NO difference.

But to reduce possible litigation with FTB - it might be better to avoid CA address.

While formally - the address you are using should be irrelevant.
