New requirements for Forms W-2 & 1099 in 2017

Beginning in 2017 bosses and independent ventures confront a prior documenting due date of January 31 for Forms W-2. The new January 31 documenting due date additionally applies to specific Forms 1099-MISC reporting non-worker pay, for example, installments to self employed entities. Likewise of note is that the IRS should likewise hold a few discounts until February 15.

Another government law, went for making it simpler for the IRS to distinguish and counteract discount misrepresentation, will quicken the W-2 recording due date for managers to January 31. For comparable reasons, the new law additionally requires the IRS to hold discounts including two key refundable duty credits until at any rate February 15 (likewise new). Here are subtle elements on each of these key dates.


The Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act, ordered last December, incorporates another necessity for managers. They are presently required to document their duplicates of Form W-2 submitted to the Social Security Administration, by January 31, and Forms 1099-MISC.

Before, bosses normally had until the finish of February (if recording on paper) or the finish of March (if documenting electronically) to present their duplicates of these structures. What’s more, there are changes in asking for an expansion to document the Form W-2. Just a single 30-day expansion to document Form W-2 is accessible, and this augmentation is not programmed.

In the event that an expansion is vital, a Form 8809 Application for Extension of Time to File Information Returns must be finished when you know an augmentation is vital, however by January 31. If it’s not too much trouble painstakingly audit the guidelines for Form 8809, and call the workplace in the event that you require more data.

The new quickened due date will help the IRS enhance its endeavors to spot mistakes on returns documented by citizens. Having these W 1099s prior will make it simpler for the IRS to check the authenticity of assessment forms and appropriately issue discounts to citizens qualified to get them. In many occurrences, this will empower the IRS to discharge charge discounts more rapidly than previously.

The January 31 due date has since a long time ago connected to bosses outfitting duplicates of these structures to their representatives and that date stays unaltered.
