The Surprising Truth: Why the 1099 Limit Bill Fell Flat

Ah, the endless joys of tax season! Just when you thought navigating the IRS maze was as fun as finding a skunk at your campground, we’ve got some news that will make you double-check those W9 forms. For all you entrepreneurs, legacy-builders, and stewards of family businesses out there, brace yourselves: the 1099 limit bill didn't pass!

From $600 to... Still $600?

Remember the rumors swirling around like a campfire story gone wild? The talk of increasing the 1099 threshold from $600 to $1,000 was everywhere last year. For those who need a refresher, a 1099 form is what you issue to an unincorporated entity or person for services rendered—think of it as the IRS’s way of saying, "We see you, we tax you."

The $600 limit has been around since the dawn of time—or at least it feels that way. Imagine our collective sigh of relief when we thought we'd get a break and see that limit raised to $1,000. Spoiler alert: it didn’t happen. We're still stuck at $600.

Myth Busted: The Law Never Passed

Accounting practitioners near and far have been buzzing about this new limit. But folks, I'm here to burst that bubble: the law never passed. That's right, if you've been collecting W9 forms thinking, "I'm good until I hit $1,000," it's time to pump the brakes. The IRS hasn't changed their tune, and neither should you.

Save Yourself the Hassle

To avoid mid-year headaches and year-end panic attacks, remember Donna's golden rule: no W9, no check. This simple mantra can save you from mad scrambles during the busy season. Trust me, chasing down contractors for forms in December is about as much fun as untangling Christmas lights.

And here’s a nifty tip: if you're paying by credit card, you get a free pass! No 1099 needed. It’s like finding out your favorite fishing spot is still a well-kept secret—pure bliss.
