If you’re reporting non-employee compensation in box 7 of Form 1099-MISC for the 2016 tax year, the time to act is now!
In just a few short weeks, the deadline for Form 1099-MISC for those reporting non-employee compensation will be here: January 31, 2017.
According to the 2016 general instructions put out by the IRS for Forms 1097, 1098, 1099, 3921, 3922, 5498, and W-2G, “Public Law 114-119, Division Q, section 201, requires 1099-MISC to be filed on or before January 31, 2017, when you are reporting nonemployee compensation payments in box 7. Otherwise, file by February 28, 2017, if you file on paper, or by March 31, 2017, if you file electronically.”
The recipient copy deadline for this form will remain the same. That means everyone, regardless of what they’re reporting on Form 1099-MISC, will need to have recipient copies mailed out by January 31, 2017.
