Do you have questions about filing W-2/1099-MISC during the shutdown?

The IRS has less than 12% of its staff available during the shutdown and they stopped phone support all together. Even though the shutdown is in full swing, there is no indication of the IRS allowing for 1099-MISC extensions since the IRS is technically still open. So go the safe route and prepare and report your forms before Jan 31, 2019. The current fines for filing past Jan 31st are $100 per form.

If you need help, WageFiling has worked directly with the IRS and SSA since 1996. Our advice is free and we offer solutions to help you file on time without forms or software.
