W-2 and 1099-MISC Filing Dates Change

The Internal Revenue Service has published [82 FR 33441] final and temporary rules effective immediately affecting the due dates for submission of certain information returns. Among the changes are a new due date of January 31 for information returns in the W-2 series and Forms 1099-MISC.

The changed deadlines are meant to reduce the IRS’s exposure to paying tax refunds early each year before it has the information returns to confirm alleged income and withholding amounts on fraudulent tax returns.
