News For All Business Owners
W-2 and 1099 Filing Deadlines
There’s a lot to cover when it comes to keeping business owners on top of all the changes to deadlines for filing W-2s and 1099s for the the 2016 tax year. So, we’ll keep it as simple as we can and then provide links where you can learn more.
All Form 1099‐MISC with Box 7 NEC (non‐employee compensation) amounts and Forms W‐2/W‐3 must be furnished, paper filed and/or e‐filed by January 31, 2017. These were previously due in February.
Think you want to file an extension? Just know they are no longer automatic. You may request one 30-day extension to file Form W-2 by submitting a complete application on Form 8809, Application for Extension of Time to File Information Returns, including a detailed explanation of why you need additional time and signed under penalties of perjury. The IRS will only grant the extension in extraordinary circumstances or catastrophe.
You can begin submitting your 2016 W-2/W-3s through QuickBooks on December 16, 2016.
Some other dates to keep in mind:
Partnership Income Tax Returns
March 15, 2017 – previously April 15th
C Corps Income Tax Returns
April 15, 2017 – previously March 15th
