Deadline for Sending Form 1099-Misc Approaching

Date: 01/26/2006 | Category: Business | Author: Claire Reid

The IRS is reminding small business which paid independent contractors $600 or more in 2005, that they have until Jan. 31 to send out their Forms 1099-MISC.

If you fail to do this, your business cannot deduct those payments as expenses.  More importantly, you could face federal fines for not complying.

The 1099-MISC form does not have to be sent if the contractor acted as a corporation unless you were paying for legal or medical services. However, if you paid business rent to an individual other than a corporation or real estate agent, you’ll need to send them their 1099 by the end of the month as well.
