2017 1099 Deadlines, Pest Control Business Owners must adhere to.1099 Deadlines Every Pest Control Owner Needs to Know! 

As we approach tax season, there are requirements that need to be met by businesses in order to be in full compliance with the law.  The requirement for subcontractors is that they are sent a 1099 that summarizes the total amount of money paid out to them over the course of the year. Below is a list of requirements that would require a 1099 be sent to a subcontractor:

  1.  Recipient is an LLC, sole-proprietor, or partnership (Corporations are not required to receive these due to their stricter tax rules) AND,
  2.  $600 or more paid out over the year

If you have subcontractors that check the boxes to the requirements above, please have them fill out a W-9.
