Senate weighs in decisively on 1099 repeal

The Senate voted by an overwhelming 81 to 17 margin Feb. 2 in favor of repealing a controversial mandate that will force businesses to file many more 1099 forms than in the past.

The mandate, which takes effect next year, requires businesses to file 1099s with the Internal Revenue Service to report cash/check payments of more than $600 in a year to all contractors and vendors of products or services.

The expanded 1099 mandate was part of last year's health care reform law.

Although hundreds of House members are lined up in support of H.R. 4, a House version of the 1099-repeal bill, the House has not yet voted.

The National Restaurant Association strongly supports repeal of the expanded 1099 mandate, and will testify Feb. 9 before the House Small Business Committee on this issue. The Senate’s overwhelming vote puts pressure on the House to vote too. All revenue measures must start in the House.
