Forms 1099-MISC and W-2: 2018 Due Dates Coming Soon!

Form W-2 and Form 1099-MISC Due Dates


If you are a business entity that issues Form W-2 or Form 1099-MISC to workers, your 2018 IRS filing due dates are soon approaching.

Beginning with the 2016 tax filing season, the IRS moved up some due dates for filing Forms W-2 and Forms 1099-MISC, February 28 to January 31.  Supposedly the change will help prevent tax fraud by permitting the IRS to more quickly verify filed tax return entries with corresponding W-2 and 1099-MISC information.

To verify your 1099-MISC and W-2 filing due dates, visit the IRS Employment Tax Due Date page.

    1. You likely have a lot of company. My assumption is that many people (including businesses and to some extent tax professionals) are also not aware of the date filing change.

  2. I truly think this due date change will catch a lot of people off guard. Earlier this week I couldn't even find 2016 Form 1099 instructions (or a sample form) on the IRS website. Taxpayers deserve better than that.

  3. How come I can't download paper forms from the IRS website?

    1. The website only contains sample 1099 forms for informational purposes only. Can't download and print due to the multiple A,B,C etc. forms that are required for various 1099 copies (depending on state taxing authority requirements), as well as the required color or red on the IRS copy.

      You can purchase 1099 and 1096 forms (generally in the same package) from an office supply store on online at Amazon.
