As the January 31st deadline for issuing Forms 1099 and W-2s approaches, employers are sometimes confused about which form they should issue. The simple answer is if you have employees and have withheld taxes, you would issue a W-2. For independent contractors who were paid $600 or more and no taxes withheld, you would issue a Form 1099.
