We're interested in paying invoices with a credit card. If we do, are we liable for the 1099s, or is the credit card company?


If you pay the vendor via card, then your card company/merchant bank is responsible for 1099 reporting—an incentive for paying with a card (in addition to a card rebate).

See 6050W Removes 1099 Reporting for P-card Users, and the link to the IRS FAQs on payment card reporting.
