The deadline for filing your W-2 and 1099-MISC forms is coming up quickly, and we’re here to help you meet your deadlines. Let’s take a quick look at what those due dates are and talk a bit about how you can be sure to hit them with time to spare.

January 31st or February 2nd?

January 31st is the due date for sending recipient copies to your employees (W-2) and contractors (1099-MISC). However, since January 31st falls on a Saturday this year, you have until the following business day to send those out. That means this year’s forms must be postmarked by Monday, February 2nd.

March 2nd or March 31?

If you choose to file paper forms with the IRS and Social Security Administration (SSA), you’ll need to have those forms in the mail by March 2nd. But if you choose to file electronically, using WageFiling’s service, you actually have some extra time to get those forms filed. Choosing to file electronically means you have until March 31 to file with the IRS and SSA.

WageFiling handles recipient copies and filing with the proper agencies all in one step. When you file electronically with us, you’ll be able to print recipient copies or even choose secure PDFs to send along to your employees and contractors. Also, you can e-file your forms now, to make sure your recipient copies go out on time, and we guarantee to file with the IRS and the SSA on time when the time is right.
