On Tuesday, April 5, 2011, the Senate passed the House bill (H.R. 4) that repeals the 1099 provisions in the 2010 healthcare law. The bill is now pending President Obama's signature; he is expected to sign it.
This will be a victory for businesses, which opposed the additional 1099 reporting requirements that would have taken effect in 2012.
