Hello I am a licensed attorney here to help you with your question, please review my response and do not hesitate to ask for clarification.
You need either to file for an extension at this time or file a new 2010 return and explain in a letter that you did not file your tax return due to you not receiving your 1099 forms.
If you do not have the 1099 forms at this time call the IRS at(NNN) NNN-NNNNfor help in getting this information.
But you don't necessarily have to wait for the statements to file your return. You generally don't have to send in the actual 1099 forms with your return. They are just issued so you'll know how much to report, with copies going to the IRS so return processors can double-check your entries. As long as you have the correct information, you can put it on your tax form without having the statement in hand.
How do I file for an extension?
you must file Form 4868, Application for Automatic Extension of Time To File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return by the due date for filing your calendar year return (usually April 15) or fiscal year return. This form is also available en español.
