Employers Must File W-2 and Other Forms by Jan 31

 

The Internal Revenue Service moved the annual deadline for filing copies of employees’ Form W-2, W-3 and certain forms reporting non-employee payments to independent contractors (such as Form 1099-MISC) with the Social Security Administration. The new deadline of Jan. 31 was established by the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act to make it easier for the IRS to legitimize tax returns and spot errors based on the earned income tax credit and the refundable portion of the child tax credit in order to reduce fraud and improper payments.
