UPDATE: New 1099 Requirements Repealed!
Have those silly new 1099 reporting requirements been changed yet?!?!? In a word, no.
The House of Representatives voted 314 to 112 to repeal the expanded 1099 reporting, paying for the changes by requiring repayment of tax credits by people who had received tax credits to pay for health insurance and later had their income rise.
The Senate had previously repealed the new reporting requirements using a different strategy to offset the revenue that had been expected to result from the new requirements.
Now we get to wait for a meeting of the minds as the differences in the bills are hashed out. Chances are good, though, that we will see a full repeal before the anticipated implementation. Phew!
