All Businesses: Give annual information statements (Forms 1099) to recipients of certain payments you made during 2015. Payments that are covered include: (1) amounts paid in real estate transactions;(2) amounts paid in broker and barter exchange transactions; and (3) certain payments to attorneys.
Employers: For Social Security, Medicare, withheld income tax, and nonpayroll withholding, deposit the tax for payments in January if the monthly rule applies.
Individuals: If you claimed exemption from income tax withholding last year on the Form W-4 you gave your employer, you must file a new Form W-4 to continue your exemption for another year.
