I forgot to send a 1099 MISC to associate. Will they waive the penalty just once?

I own a travel agency franchise and paid a friend $754 to book cruises through me. I just realized yesterday that I should have sent her a 1099 MISC. Will the IRS waive a penalty for such a small infraction? I just ordered the 1099 form online today and it won't get here for 7 to 15 days. Thanks!

I don't think IRS will penalize you, provided you report the 1099-Misc income to the IRS. I suggest you tell your friend that you are going to issue him a 1099-Misc so that he can include that income on his personal tax return.

Go ahead and send in a 1096 Annual Transmittal Form (Red Copy) along with
a 1099-Misc (Red Form) to the IRS. The receipent copy gets mailed to the your friend. It is best to send the IRS copy asap but prior to February 28th.

1096 Transmittal form

Will they send me the Transmittal form with the 1099s I ordered?

Where did you order the Red 1099-Misc forms? Was it the IRS? I think you can pick up the Forms from Staples or Office Depot!

If not, you can have a CPA firm prepare these for you, it may cost anywhere from $100 to $150 depending on which State you are located in. The IRS can mail these to you if you request them, but it may take a little longer.
