In case you haven’t heard, today’s a pretty big deadline for 1099 and W-2 filers.
As we mentioned a time or two before, the filing deadline for all W-2 Forms for the 2016 tax year is January 31, 2017. This means:
- W-2 Forms to your recipients must be postmarked and sent today.
- W-2 Forms to be filed with the Social Security Administration need to be filed on paper or electronically today.
1099 Form filers who haven’t begun filing for the 2016 tax year yet may be in slightly less dire straits - if they fall in the right categories. Regardless of the 1099, you need to file or what you need to report on it, the recipient copies must be mailed out today, January 31, 2017.
And if you need to file Form 1099-MISC to report nonemployee compensation in box 7, you must file Copy A of Form 1099-MISC with the IRS today. You may also be required to file a copy of this form with your state today as well.
