Happy New Year!

With the new year here, that also means tax season is here. Let’s make sure all your paperwork is in on time to beat the “rush” that comes when the deadlines approach.

Here’s a run-down of all the deadlines you need to be aware of. All of them might not apply to you, but make sure you read through the whole email to ensure your bases are covered!

1) Estimated taxes are due January 17th

It’s quarterly tax time again! If you’re a small business owner, you may be required to pay estimated taxes every quarter.

2) 1099s due January 31st

You are required to send Form 1099 to vendors or sub-contractors during the normal course of business you paid more than $600 for services, and that includes any individual, partnership, Limited Liability Company (LLC), Limited Partnership (LP), or Estate.

3) W-2s & Form 940 (FUTA) due January 31st

You’re legally responsible for distributing paper copies of W-2s, unless your employees have given consent to receive them electronically before January 31st. Form 940 (FUTA) annual tax return is due also by January 31st.

4) Partnerships and S Corps

Wednesday, March 15, 2023 is the deadline for all Partnerships (Form 1065) and S Corps (Form 1120S). Remember these are “information returns” with no tax due, BUT you can’t file your personal 1040 return until you get your K-1 from these business returns.

5) Individuals (Sole Proprietors) and C Corps

Monday, April 17, 2023 for individuals (Form 1040) and C Corps (Form 1120).

And that about wraps up the filing requirements for any small business during tax season.
