1099-MISC Law Repealed

President Obama  has signed into law the Comprehensive 1099 Taxpayer Protection and Repayment of Exchange Subsidy Overpayments Act of 2011 eliminating the requirement that businesses must issue a Form 1099-MISC to both corporate and non-corporate entities for the purchase of goods and services over $600.

Also, the April 14, 2011 law repealed the requirement that individuals who receive rental income from real estate must report rental property expenses greater than $600 on Form 1099-MISC.

These repeals were prompted by an outcry from both small businesses and the self-employed who claimed that the new reporting requirements would be cumbersome and would bury their respective businesses in paperwork.
