The IRS provides an online PDF of the 1099 for 2017. Those who need to reference the form or fill it out for personal record-keeping should be able to print this PDF directly from the website. However, remember that paper forms are scanned during processing. This means preparers cannot file 1099 for 2017 with the form printed from the IRS website. You’ll need to either order a paper form directly from the IRS or invest in an electronic filing solution.
Filers still have time to submit 1099 MISC 2017 forms. That said, those trying to file these forms nearly three years after the initial deadline should probably also focus on creating an easier, more efficient filing system. This is where tools from Advanced Micro Solutions can help.
Can I Still File a 1099 for 2017?
Yes, you can. The statute of limitations for most 1099 forms is three years. This means that most users have until January 31, 2021 to get their 2017 paperwork in. However, that statute of limitations applies to the penalty window; even if you surpass the timeline, you should still file late 1099 forms.
However, filing a paper 1099 for 2017 becomes difficult the farther we get from the original filing deadline. If you’re trying to submit a late form, electronic filing is your easiest option. In fact, investing in an accounting software tool can help prevent late filings altogether. We’ll show you what we mean.
