No 1099 Relief in Tax Deal

A website visitor asks if the tax deal contained any relief from 1099 reporting for small businesses.  The answer is NO, it didn’t.  But there is still hope that Congress will provide relief before the stricter reporting requirements take affect in 2012.  Both Republicans and Democrats seem to agree that the stricter requirements will be a burden on small businesses, but for some reason, they can’t reach an agreement to actually provide relief.
