In 2015, the deadline for receiving 1099-C, 1099-DIV, 1099-G, 1099-INT and 1099-K was Feb. 2. The deadline for 1099-MISC for rents, royalties, prizes and awards, and nonemployee compensation; 1099-R; 1099-SA for distributions from an HSA, Archer MSA or Medicare Advantage MSA; and SSA-1099 forms was Feb. 2. The deadline was Feb. 17 for 1099-B, 1099-MISC for attorney's fees and substitute payments, and 1099-SA for information about real estate sales forms, according to Forbes.

It doesn't cover salaries from employers. The paying organization or person has the responsibility to fill out the necessary 1099 form and issue it to the contractor.
