AnswerThere is a common mis-conception that the notices of the type you ask, generally in the 1099 series (there are lots of different ones) as well as a W-2, (showing withholding by employers), must be received by January 31 for any period in the just ended calendar year.

THAT IS INCORRECT: Actually, there really isn't requirement for a received by date. The information must be SENT/PROVIDED (that is given to the USPS or approved service) by that date, 1/31 (+ for weekends/holidays, etc). Hence, if you have a slow mail service in your area, and a reporter that got it to the USPS late on 1/31, it may be several days or more until you actually receive it, and there would be no foul. Same true for lost ones that you never receive: as long as they have proof of mailing it on time, they're okay. And there are simple procedures that allow most filers of these returns an additional 30 days.

The law prescribes penalties for late filings. However, it is normally viewed from the IRS side, meaning when the copy they get was electronically transmitted, or certified mailed. The penalty is assessable and payable by/to the IRS - not to you. In fact, if a form is late (or not sent) to you, you can't use it as any particular excuse and must try to report what it was going to say anyway - as best you can and note it.

What Consumers Need to Know About IRS Form 1099?

IRS form 1099 refers to a number of forms used to report several different types of income. Unlike a W-2, a 1099 is not used to report income earned as an employee of a company. Other types of taxable income, however, will usually be reported with a 1099.IRS Form 1099-MISCOne of the most common 1099 forms is the IRS Form 1099-MISC. This form is used to report income earned as an independent contractor or freelance agent. Once you begin working with a specific company, the company should send you a 1099. You will fill out this form and return the original copy to the company.A few months prior to filing taxes, you will receive a copy of your 1099 listing your earnings in the previous calendar year. You should receive a 1099 for every company you worked with. If your 1099 indicates that you earned over $600 while working as an independent agent, you must file this form with the rest of your taxes.The Different 1099 FormsIn addition to the IRS Form 1099-MISC, there are several different types of 1099s. Examples of these forms include Form 1099-A, Form 1099-B, Form 1099-C, Form 1099-DIV, Form 1099-G, Form 1099-INT, Form 1099-MSA, Form 1099-OID, Form 1099-PATR, Form 1099-R, Form 1099-S, Form SSA-1099 and Form RRB-1099.Each of these forms report revenue gained from different sources, like the sale of stocks, canceled debts, distributions from retirements plans, and government benefits. For instance, Form 1099-INT is used to report the interest earned by a tax payer. Form SSA-1099 is used to report one's Social Security benefits. People who use Form 1099-B are reporting the income they earned by selling stocks, mutual funds, and other holdings.Like the IRS Form 1099-MISC, companies must send these forms by January 31st. This should give tax payers enough time to receive and file these forms prior to the IRS's deadline. As with the 1099-MISC, tax payers must report any amount over $600 while filing their taxes.While filing your taxes, it is important to remember that a 1099 is just as important as a W-2. If you fail to file a required form, you might be audited, fined, and required to pay the owed amount. Refusal to pay the IRS can result in the seizure of property and other legal action.

Who gets tax Form 1099-M?

There is no Form 1099-M. But there is Form 1099-MISC(Miscellaneous Income), which reports certain kinds of payments. Following are some of the reasons why you receive Form 1099-MISC. If you're self-employed, you'll receive Form 1099-MISC to report income paid to you for work or services. The person or entity giving you this form doesn't consider you an employee, so they didn't withhold tax (income, social security, Medicare) from your earnings. That's why they gave you a Form 1099-MISC, not a Form W-2.You also will receive a 1099-MISC form if you received at least $10 in royalties or broker payments instead of dividends or tax-exempt interest. If you're in the business of catching fish, then the amount that you receive for the sale of fish is reported to you on Form 1099-MISC.
