A tipster tells us that he just received his Form 1099 for Conde Nast freelance work, postmarked the last week of February. Which was especially bad for him, since he had already filed his taxes. We're not tax attorneys (surprisingly), but sending out 1099s three to four weeks late seems problematic.
