The wp1099_nec_min_payout filter lets you change the value that is used for the minimum payout amount for non employee compensation payments.

The filter accepts one parameter.


  • $amount - default value is 600 as the IRS minimum payout amount is $600 to generate a 1099-MISC


This filter can be used in the following manner:

// Change the minimum payout amount to $500 from $600 
add_filter( 'wp1099_nec_min_payout', 'my_custom_non_employee_compensation_amount' ); 
function my_custom_non_employee_compensation_amount( $amount ){
 	return '500';
