If you missed my post a couple of weeks ago about the 1099 deadline, or if you simply fell behind and didn't get all your 1099-MISCs out the door to your vendors by the january 31st deadline, don't despair. The world is still turning and life is going to go on. It's not the end of the world, and you can still get yourself in compliance relatively easily. Doing nothing because you think it's too late is not a good option, though. That can get you into trouble with the IRS.
