Penalties for Failure to File 1099 and W-2 Forms

Online software for 1099The January 31st deadline has passed for filing 1099 and W-2 forms to your employees, but you’ve still got some that haven’t been filed.  So what happens now?

If you’ve forgotten to file, or simply become too bogged down with work to get all of your forms filed, there are penalties you will have to deal with.  Within 30 days of the deadline, penalties will run about $30 per form that you haven’t filed or have incorrectly filed, with a maximum penalty of $250, 000 for larger businesses.  If you’re running a small business, your maximum yearly penalty will be $75,000.
