Senate Approves 1099 Repeal, Sends Bill to President
The Senate on Tuesday passed legislation to repeal both the expanded Form 1099 information-reporting requirements mandated by last year’s health care legislation and also new 1099 reporting requirements imposed on taxpayers who receive rental income. The Comprehensive 1099 Taxpayer Protection and Repayment of Exchange Subsidy Overpayments Act of 2011 (HR 4) was approved by the Senate by a vote of 87–12. The House of Representatives passed the bill on March 3, and since the House and Senate have approved the same version it now goes to President Barack Obama for his signature.
