When must I submit a tax form to the IRS and/or SSA?

Important Dates and Deadlines
You can start filing as soon as we release the current year's forms, typically in November or early December. You do not have to wait until January to file your forms, as long as the contractor or employee has completed all work for the calendar year and you have all the required information at hand. To get a head start on the process, you can create an account and set up payers and recipients any time.
