Important dates

With Tax1099.com, you can schedule the date that your forms are transmitted to the IRS. Scheduling your forms gives you time between when we email/USPS your forms to vendors, and when we send the forms to the IRS. This is useful because your vendors may have edits to make. You can make those changes in Tax1099 before the scheduled date at no extra charge. We automatically schedule your IRS eFile transmission at a week away from when you submit, or by the deadline. You can edit this date to match your preference.

Paper filers and eFilers must file form 940 to the IRS by January 31, 2018. However, if you deposited all your FUTA tax when it was due, you may file Form 940 by February 10, 2018. FUTA taxes must be paid quarterly by the last day of the month following the end of a calendar quarter.
