While the deadlines for other major forms like W-2 and 1099-NEC have passed, this doesn’t mean that businesses aren’t required to file additional 1099 forms in the coming weeks.
One of the main Forms 1099 that is required to be filed with the IRS is Form 1099-MISC. This form is due to the IRS on February 28, 2022, if the business is filing a paper copy of the form, and March 31, 2022, if the business is planning to file the form electronically.
Off the bat, there is one obvious reason that e-filing this form is more convenient than filing a paper copy and that is the additional time available to file. Keep reading to learn 5 more reasons why e-filing the Form 1099-MISC is the best option for your business this year!
