The filing deadline for W-2s and 1099s is February 15, 2021.
Businesses that issued W-2s or 1099s that contain Iowa withholding must electronically file those documents with the Iowa Department of Revenue. This data is an essential tool the Department uses to increase the accuracy of tax refunds and detect tax refund fraud during the current income tax filing season. If businesses did not withhold any Iowa taxes in 2020, filing is not required.
Note: VSPs are filed separately from W-2s and 1099s, and are due to the Department by February 15.
New this year:
- 1099-NEC is an accepted form for tax year 2020 and is required to be electronically filed if it contains Iowa tax withholding.
