1099 Forms

Posted by taxguru on January 20, 2008


Q:

Subject: 1099 forms

Kerry – I was going to run off the 1099-Misc form off the web, but they said that I’m not to copy the red form (copy A), the one that I send in.   Do you have these forms or where can I get them?  I have the red (1096) they sent thru the mail. 

A:

Those red forms are a pain in the butt to line up properly in printers, so you should buy some extras to test on.

Most office supply stores are selling them right now.  I saw them in Staples in Mt. Home last weekend.

You should remember that the 1099 forms are only required to be given to your unincorporated workers by 1/31/08.  The red forms that are required to be sent to IRS don’t have to be postmarked until 2/29/08.  It’s not a good idea to rush the IRS’s copies in until all of your 1099 recipients have had a chance to review their copies for mistakes.  A big mess will ensue if you send in an incorrect 1099 to IRS and then later send them a corrected one.  It’s much better for everyone to only send in one accurate form per payee during February.

Good luck. 

Kerry
