If an employee dies, his/her beneficiaries or executors will receive IRS Form 1099-MISC in January for payments issued to them during the prior tax year. Payments may include unpaid wages owed, vacation payout of unused vacation hours and benefit deduction refunds.
In addition, they may receive IRS Form 1099-R to report the ¼ sick leave hours paid, if eligible, at the time of the employee’s death. Vacation and sick leave payments are subject to the employee's maximum leave payout guidelines.
