President Obama Signs Form 1099 Repeal

Washington--President Barack Obama signed into law legislation officially repealing the 1099 reporting requirement included in last year’s health care law. Under terms of the repeal, businesses will no longer be required to issue 1099 forms to all vendors from whom they buy more than $600 worth of goods or services in any year, beginning in 2012. “I was pleased to take another step to relieve unnecessary burdens on small businesses by signing H.R. 4 into law,” the president said. “Small business owners are the engine of our economy and because Democrats and Republicans worked together, we can ensure they spend their time and resources creating jobs and growing their business, not filling out more paperwork.”

Farm Bureau backed the 1099 repeal and thanks the president for signing it into law.
