Hi all,I've taken on a daunting task of doing my own taxes this year, and now I find myself overwhelmed! I need a little help please!I am self employed and have to file 1099-MISC for a few independent contractors I used. One of these individuals has neglected to give me her SS#. Can I still file a 1099-MISC form for this individual without SS information?Also, I just read that i missed the deadline to file 1099 on paper, and now have to do it electronically. How do I do this?Thanks for all your helpSo many things to comment on and so little time. <g> If this is your first year on your own, you should RUN, not walk, to a tax professional to make sure that you are tracking all of your business transactions and preparing your taxes correctly. You're already in trouble on your 1099 filings. Who knows what else is wrong?Two, you should ALWAYS get a W-9 from any potential supplier BEFORE you pay them anything. I hold it out as a condition for payment. If they're a corporation or otherwise exempt from 1099 reporting, they'll tell you so on the W-9. You have missed several deadlines with regard to the 1099s. You were supposed to issue them to your suppliers by 1/31. You were supposed to file them with the IRS by 2/28. The IRS deadline can be extended by efiling, but you can't do it yourself and I doubt that any authorized efiler will take your data and file it for you without a prior working relationship. You can apply to be an authorized efiler, but that will take more than 30 days, and you will need to purchase appropriate software which is not available as a "consumer" item. Best option is to file on paper ASAP and request an abatement of any penalties which are assessed later. If you read through the instructions carefully, you will see what you should do if you don't have an SSN from one of your 1099 recipients.Ira
