New Tax Law Changes for Form 1099 Compliance
In 2013, there have been significant tax law changes effecting freelance and contract workers who file Form 1099.
If you work with freelancers, time is running out for employers to file Form 1099 under the new tax law changes under the 2010 Health Care Act. Employers must report both goods and services earned in 2012, not just goods and exempted payments. The intended goal is to remove the distinction between goods and services paid to freelancers, thereby cutting overall compliance costs.
Compliance under the new tax law changes means there is little time to waste.
