1099 Reporting - 2012

Please send any 1099 Distibution List updates to so we can make sure the list is correct for January reporting.  If you are sending an addition or change to your contact, please forward the necessary contact information so that we may verify that our records are accurate.  Please include contact, telephone, mail address and e-mail address to be included on the printed forms.

The official extract and upload to the 1099 edit screens will be done on January 3, 2013. You will have access to the edit screens from January 4 through January 24. We will print the 1099s on January 25, allowing time to deliver and prepare for mailing by January 31 in order to comply with Federal requirements. When that is complete we will reopen the edit screens for further edits to the 1099 records.

Remember that any changes made after we print the form must be manually typed and sent to the recipient.

After the final date for edits on March 22, 2013, we will extract and send the 1099 information to the IRS electronically.
