1095, 1098, 1099 and W-2 paper forms are to be postmarked and mailed to recipients by the January 31st deadline.* If you miss this mailing date you may be subject to penalties. If you are in this situation it is usually best to get your recipient copies mailed and have our site file your data electronically by the January 31st electronic filing deadline for 1099-MISC (box 7) and W-2. Or the April 2nd electronic filing deadline for all other 1099 forms.
Intentional disregard of mailing & filing introduces substantial penalties.
See PDF below for more information on penalties associated with late filing.
*When January 31st falls on a weekend the deadline extends to the next business day.
Note: this mailing deadline does not refer to the 1042-S Form.
