Billions of New Tax Forms Starting 2012: 40 Million Businesses Must Send IRS a Form 1099 to Every Party They Pay $600+ a Year

CNN Money:  “The new regulations, which kick in at the start of 2012, require any taxpayer with business income to issue 1099 forms to all vendors from whom they purchased more than $600 of goods and services that year. That promises to launch a fusillade of new paperwork: An estimated 40 million taxpayers will be subject to the requirement, including 26 million who run sole proprietorships, according to a report released this week by [IRS] National Taxpayer Advocate Nina Olson.”  The new 1099 requirement was contained in the 2,200 plus pages of the Obamacare law.

    Great. More time spent on taxes and less time doing something that makes money.
