E-Filing Form 1099 and Form W-2 with ExpressTaxFilings is not only quick and easy, but the deadline is automatically extended until April 1, 2013 and eliminates the need to file Form 1096 and W-3, which are the transmittal documents.
If you choose to paper file forms, you must file Form 1099 with Form 1096 and Copy A of Form W-2 with Form W-3 by February 28, 2013. Failure to file by deadline may incur penalties.
Be aware that even though the E-Filing deadline is not until April 1, 2013, you were still required to furnish Copies B, C, and 2 of Form W-2 and Form 1099 to your employees by January 31, 2013, which means they must have been delivered or postmarked on or before yesterday. The deadline to furnish Form 1099-MISC is February 15, 2013 only if amounts are reported in boxes 8 or 14 (Substitute payments in lieu of dividends or interest and Gross proceeds paid to an attorney).
