Finally got both of ours today too.
Just one more to go for us to file.
I got a small annuity from a death in the family and part of it was taxable. I hope I had them withhold enough to I don't owe!!!!

Howso "finally"? January 19 is not at all late. By law they are supposed to be mailed by the end of the month, I believe. (I don't mean just Social Security, but ALL the 1099's and W-2's and so forth). Many do arrive quite near the end of the month.

Simple, the other agency, OPM, that puts out my Civil Service information was the earliest I have ever seen it this year. I was hoping SS would be the same.

Don't most places have thru 1/31 to mail out tax related documents? Rec'd my s/s doc last week, but no rush for me to file since I don't get a refund.

Yes by law they do, and many don't comply with the law anyway. Over the years I have had postmarked 1099R forms mailed days after the end of Jan. Not much enforcement.

For the past six or seven years in a row, I've been making the appointment with my CPA for the last week in February and I've always had everything I needed by then. It's late enough to have everything and early enough to avoid the rush of last-minute-Charlies. That timing seems to be perfect.

For those filing without outside help, things are even more flexible (no appointment being necessary); at the point where they have everything they need, they just prepare the returns and file. I still don't get what all the agonizing is about.

I've gotten to the point where I just send my CPA the information; I went years without seeing our last CPA before he retired. I am with you -- get the darn task over with. Except for a few numbers I have to fill in (waiting for W-2s, etc.), I am done with taxes. My former CPA used to say he knew it was early February by the fact that an envelope from me had arrived in his mailbox.
