As an LLC business owner, my state (AZ) does not require 1099-MISC submitted. Do I need to provide my contractors with a state copy of their 1099-MISC?

As an LLC business owner, my home state of AZ does not require 1099-MISC to be submitted. My contractors live in other states. Nothing was withheld from my contractors' wages. 

I will send Copy B of 1099-MISC to my contractors. 

However, the TT print-out does not specify whether the "Copy 1 for State" was intended for me, the Payer, or the contractor.

Do I need to provide my contractors with the "Copy 1 for State" of their 1099-MISC?

is the contractor an individual or incorporated? Federal laws require you to send 1099Misc still.  <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/i1099msc_17.pdf">https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/i1099msc_17.pdf</a>... state may not require one but the Fed rules still apply.  Don't worry about the state as long as you send IRS version.

Thank you for the quick reply! I added some details:

Yes - the contractors are individuals.

copy 1 is for you to keep.  As long as no state taxes were withheld, you are good. As Scruffy said, you still may want to send a copy to the contractor.

Given that TTax H&B automatically can generate all copies from the Form 1099-MISC, and since the Federal copy is electronically transmitted, and given that AZ likely shares reported income with the IRS, you do your subcontractors a favor by giving them a copy so that they have an accurate record of the filing.

If AZ does not "require" that you provide that copy, then that is the answer - not required. BUT as said, as a courtesy you might consider doing it.  Realize that the Federal electronic submittal will have already occurred as you printed the paper copies, and AZ likely synchronizes income reported with the IRS so you are not exposing the contractor to any more reportable income, but simply giving them a heads-up

Copy 1 goes from you to the state if required.  There is a Copy 2 to give your contractors for state but Turbo Tax doesn't print the copy 2.  The contractors don't need to attach any 1099Misc to their federal or state returns so one copy is really all they need.

Again, the question is not on which copy, but rather that since AZ does not require submittal (it uses info from IRS), OP wants to know if he/she still should have copy to contractor.

And he's asking about copy 1 specifically.  No he doesn't give Copy 1 to the contractor.
