if you do not receive the missing or corrected form by February 14 from your employer/payer, you may call the IRS at 800-829-1040 for assistance. When you call, you need : your name, address (including ZIP code), phone number, and social security number. You will also need to provide your employer/payer's name, address (including ZIP code), and phone number, employer identification number (if known), an estimate of the wages you earned, the federal income tax withheld, and your dates of employment. After February 14, the IRS will contact the employer/payer for you and request the missing form; so, bad for the payer; the irs ?d take care of it by contacting the payor. The IRS penalizes the payor for not filing 1099 by the due date since he must send a copy of 1099/1096 to IRS and a copy of 1099 to you , a contractor. He must issue all 1099s including 1099-MISC forms by January 31 after the end of the calendar year. If filing by paper, businesses must file 1099s with the IRS by February 28. If filing electronically, companies must e-file the 1099s with the IRS by March 31.when Your payor paid you a contractor, but did not send you a Form 1099 for the payments. he gets audited, the IRS requests verification of the labor expense, and he must provide the auditor with copies of his checks verifying the payment. the IRS auditor says he cannot deduct an expense if he did not send out Form 1099 to you.also The tax he would owe if your labor expense is disallowed would be staggering.
