2008 1099-Composites Mailed By Feb 17 Not Jan 31

One thing you probably didn’t hear about the bailout is that it extended the required mailing date for 2008 1099-Composites from Jan 31 to Feb 17. So don’t get freaked out and run down to the dirt road to the mailbox to keep checking for it. Just sit back on the porch and wait for your little post-Valentine’s tax present to arrive.
