Section 9006 of the health care bill -- just a few lines buried in the 2,409-page document -- mandates that beginning in 2012 all companies will have to issue 1099 tax forms not just to contract workers but to any individual or corporation from which they buy more than $600 in goods or services in a tax year.
Don't think about the implications of this little bookkeeping change. It'll just ruin your day. Trust your government. Trust. Your. Government.
