By now many independent contractors are starting see their 1099-Misc and other tax forms start to roll in. The deadline for companies to send these forms is January 31, 2013, so don't worry yet if you haven't seen yours. If you have received a 1099, be sure to open it right away and check its accuracy. If you do have to get a 1099 corrected, you'll want plenty of time available to you.
I've had to get a 1099 corrected before, and it is not easy. As an independent contractor, your issue may be on the bottom of everyone's to-do list. If you've had a late or incorrect 1099, share your story.
