Changes to 2011 1099-misc reporting requirements

If you're a business owner, there's a good chance that you'll be preparing 1099-misc slips sometime this month. There are some important changes to 1099-misc reporting requirements.

If you made payment to vendors via a third party payment system such as google checkout, credit-card, debit card, or paypal, do not include these amounts on the 1099-misc you issue to your vendor. The third party company will be responsible for reporting these payments on a form 1099-K.

Here's a link to the IRS instructions.

In most cases, 1099's should be issued to the recipient by January 31.
