PPACA Requirement for 1099 Reporting Axed

Congress has passed and President Obama has signed legislation to repeal a much-loathed provision of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) that would have required the issuance of an IRS form 1099 for every expenditure of $600 or more. The mandate would have kicked in on Jan. 1, 2012, but HR4 amended PPACA to eliminate the requirement.

In practice the provision would have forced companies to issue 1099s, for instance, to hotels for road trips, to catering companies for banquets, to paper companies for copy paper, and so on. Now everything reverts to the status quo ante—1099s are for payments for labor and services provided for outside of the company payroll.
