Tax Season Approaches: Don’t Trip on W-2s and 1099s!

It’s that time of year again, friends. While some may relish the opportunity to dive into spreadsheets and receipts (The Paisano Team falls in this category), for others, it’s a season of stress and trepidation.

One of the biggest headaches? W-2s and 1099s. These pesky forms may seem like simple paperwork, but getting them wrong can land you in hot water with the IRS. So, let’s break down the importance of these documents and how to navigate them accurately – with a little help from Paisano Tax, of course!

W-2s for Workers, 1099s for Independent Contractors:

  • W-2s: If you have employees, these forms report their wages, taxes withheld, and other important information to the IRS and your employees. Missing information or inaccuracies can lead to delays, fees, and even penalties.
  • 1099s: If you hire independent contractors, you’re responsible for issuing 1099 forms. These forms report the amount of money you paid them during the year. Ignoring 1099s is a recipe for trouble – not only for your contractor, who needs them for their own tax filings, but also for you, as the IRS takes missing 1099s very seriously.


Deadlines You Don’t Want to Miss:

  • January 31st: This is the deadline for businesses to file W-2s and 1099s with the IRS. Get them in early to avoid late filing penalties!
  • February 1st: By this date, you need to furnish copies of W-2s and 1099s to your employees and contractors. Make sure they receive their forms on time to avoid confusion and delays on their end.
