Q1: Is there a deadline for the 1099 and 1096 forms after the business is closed?
A1: The forms should be filed the year that the business ceases operations.
Q2: Can I file those early next year (2018)?
A2: If the business tax return is due 3 months after business closure, then that is when you need to file the Form 1096 and Form 1099-Div. If that 3 month time frame has already passed, I would suggest filing the forms as soon as possible.
