January 2023: Getting Your 1099s in Order

February 3, 2023



January is a big month for 1099 compliance. 1099-NEC forms need to be sent to both recipients and the IRS by the end of the month. Many other types of 1099 forms also need to go to recipients by January 31, 2023 — although the filing date to the IRS may be later — but either way, it’s one of the busiest times of the year. We offer some resources for getting your head wrapped around the task ahead.
