Well, guys, we had to break it to you about the new W-2 Form deadline, now we’ve got some more slightly stressing news: your Form 1099-MISC deadline has probably been backed up to January 31, too.
The New Filing Date
Usually, when we talk deadlines, we’re a little more exact than “probably,” but the new 1099-MISC filing date has a condition: if you’re reporting nonemployee compensation payments in box 7 on Form 1099-MISC, your 2016 1099-MISC Forms must be submitted to the IRS by January 31, 2017.
If you do not have to report nonemployee compensation payments in box 7, you get to stick with the old deadlines, which if you’ll remember, are:
- February 28, 2017, if you’re paper filing
- March 31, 2017, if you’re e-filing.
