The due date to furnish copies of Form 1099 to recipients is generally by January 31 of the year following the year in which the 1099 Form references. If you report payments in either box 8 (Substitute payments in lieu of dividends or interest) or 14 (Gross proceeds paid to an attorney) of Form 1099-MISC, the due date for furnishing the form to recipients is extended to February 15. This due date also applies to statements furnished as part of a consolidated reporting statement. Payers are required to file Form 1099 with the IRS by the last day of February of the year following the year in which the 1099 Form references if paper filing. If the forms are e-filed, the due date is automatically extended to the last day in March of that year. However, if you report non-employee compensation in box 7 of Form 1099-MISC, the deadline to have to file, either on paper or electronically, is January 31.
