Below are the list of statuses and what they mean:
- Not Submitted: You haven't e-filed the Form 1099-MISC with the IRS. You can continue revising it.
- Submitted: You have already e-filed the form to the IRS. At this point, you can't revise it through our service (if you need to revise it, you'll need to file a manual amendment).
- Received by IRS: The IRS has received your form and is either processing it or has already processed and approved it. This year, the IRS starts processing forms on the 3rd of February. We will send an email about a week after the IRS accepts your forms.
Customers who have submitted their 1099 e-file will receive a confirmation email approximately weeks after submitting their forms. For customers who submit their forms on or before February 3, 2014, they wont receive their confirmation email until the 3rd of February since the IRS does not start accepting and confirming submissions until after that day.
