I forget if this has been changed to the middle of February, but some companies do not send them until much later than then. Screw them. I usually finish my returns in early March, but if I do not get a 1099 until after I file, I put in in the folder with the other documentation, but to not file an amended return. The IRS has never complained.

Yes, it has been changed to mid February with the option of the broker requesting an extension.

If you are using the information that would be in the 1099 then the IRS isn't going to complain. If you miss any significant income the IRS will notice. I was recovering from surgery last year and missed a 1099. The IRS sent a bill for $18.00 plus a few cents penalty.
