Filing Deadline for W-2 and 1099 Forms

Taxpayers who paid employees or independent contractors in 2022 are reminded to file all required payment reporting forms by January 31, 2023.

If you operate a business and pay employees, you generally must file a Form W-2 for each employee with the Social Security Administration (SSA) by January 31. You must also send each employee a copy of their W-2.

January 31 is also the deadline for 1099 forms if you are required to file 1099-MISC and 1099-NEC forms.

Our tax professionals at RTW Xxact Enterprises can help you determine whether you need to file W-2 or 1099 forms, and may also be able to help you submit the forms electronically.
