President Expected To Sign Bill Repealing Expanded 1099 Requirements

On April 5, the Senate by a vote of 87-12 approved H.R. 4, the “Comprehensive 1099 Taxpayer Protection and Repayment of Exchange Subsidy Overpayments Act of 2011.” The bill, which was previously passed by the House on March 3 by a vote of 314-112, would retroactively repeal the new and unpopular Form 1099 information reporting rules. The White House has indicated that the President will sign H.R. 4 into law. A press release dated April 5 declares that “Small businesses are the engine of our economy and eliminating the 1099 reporting requirement is the right thing to do.”
