Crucial Year-End Filing Deadlines for Your Business in 2023

January 31st is right around the corner, are you required to file these forms?

January has finally arrived. We rang in the new year and enjoyed a lovely holiday season, but now it is time to get down to business. Businesses and CPAs face many IRS/SSA deadlines ahead. 

Here is an overview of the year-end forms your business may need to file for the 2022 tax year. The deadlines will be here before you know it!

Form W-2

Form W2 is a wage tax form that reports the wages you paid to your employees and the taxes that you withheld from their pay. This includes Social Security, Medicare, and income taxes. 

Our team frequently receives questions about Box D of Form W-2. This field is used for the Control Number, this number differentiates a single W-2 from all the others that an employer files. However, this box is not required, and leaving it blank will not result in a rejection from the SSA. 

1099 Forms 

These are the most common types of 1099 Forms: 

Form 1099-NEC 

IRS Form 1099-NEC is used to report payments ($600 or more) made to nonemployees. Previously, this was reported on box 7 of Form 1099-MISC. Now, the IRS has separated the reporting for nonemployee compensation by reintroducing the 1099-NEC Form for the 2020 tax year. 

Forms 1099-NEC must be filed with the IRS and 

Form 1099-MISC

IRS Form 1099-MISC is an IRS tax form that reports payments other than nonemployee compensation made by a trade or business to others. Form 1099-MISC is also used to report payments made for rent, fishing boat proceeds, medical and health care payments, prizes, awards, and more. 

Recipient copies of Form 1099-MISC have two separate deadlines depending on the information in boxes 8 and 10: 

  • Recipient copies with no data in boxes 8 or 10 are due by January 31, 2023.
  • Recipient copies with data in boxes 8 or 10 are due by February 15, 2023.

The electronic filing deadline for Form 1099-MISC is March 31, 2023.  

IRS Form 1099-K

Form 1099-K is used to report electronic payments from credit cards, debit cards, PayPal, Uber, Lyft, and more. The businesses that facilitate these payments are required to file Form 1099-K. 

Payment Settlement Entities (PSEs), Third-party Settlement Organizations (TPSOs), and Merchant Acquiring Entities (MAEs) are all examples of the types of businesses that are required to file this form with the IRS. 

The new filing requirements for 1099-K have been delayed.

Initially, the threshold for the 2022 tax year was lowered: 

  • PSEs and similar businesses would need to file a Form 1099-K to report any payment of $600 or more, regardless of how many transactions. 

Now, the thresholds for the 2022 tax year will remain the same as the 2021 tax year. 

  • PSEs and similar businesses will only be required to report payments exceeding $20,000 from over 200 transactions. 

Businesses that are required to file this form must distribute copies to their recipients by January 31, 2023. 

The deadline to file paper copies of Form 1099-K is February 28, 2023.

The deadline to file electronically with the IRS is March 31, 2023. 

The following 1099 forms are also required to be postmarked and distributed by January 31, 2023:
