1099 Filing Date Just Around The Corner

If you operate a business and engage the services of an individual (independent contractor) other than one who meets the definition of an employee, and you pay him or her $600 or more for the calendar year, you are required to issue the individual a Form 1099-MISC soon after the end of the year to avoid penalties and the prospect of losing the deduction for his or her labor and expenses in an audit.

The due date for mailing the recipient his or her copy of the 1099-MISC that reports 2017 payments is January 31, 2018. That is also the due date for filing the 1099-MISC with the IRS.
