New (Earlier) Deadline for 1099 Forms

The IRS 1099 filing deadline for reporting payments to professionals has been moved up to January 31, 2017. In addition, the 2016 forms have been slightly modified in formatting over the previous year’s versions. Stay abreast of these changes by getting an early start on your 1099 form preparation this month.

Avoid frustration and work scheduling issues by starting your 1099 form preparation early. Take time now to order 1099 forms from Staples (or another office supply retailer) before they’re gone. If you wait until the last minute, you may find the 2016 tax forms you need to print aren’t there for you.

For your convenience, we’ve provided the Staples item numbers you will need to make ordering easy:

  • 1099-MISC (Staples Item #2327447)
  • 1099-INT (Staples Item #920063)
  • 1096 (Staples Item #2327454)

Be sure to place your order now to make printing your 2016 IRS Form 1099s run smoother and faster in January.

All BMS software platforms (CaseLink², CaseLink Web, CaseLink Office, CaseLink Online and TrustWorks) will be updated this month to support the printing of 1099 forms for the 2016 tax year.
