1096 Forms – 1096 Deadline

 

Now that you sent out those pesky 1099 forms back in January, it is time to complete the process and send the 1099 copies to the IRS along with your 1096 form. These forms must be sent in to the IRS no later than February 28, 2011

 

A 1096 is a summary form; in short the form tells the IRS “Hey I am filing x number of forms for x amount of money.” You sign it and send it in. As with any tax related correspondence make sure to keep a copy for your files. For more information on 1099 and 1096 forms check out 6 Tips on Getting Your 1099s Right.
