Form 1099 Explained – (from p. 12, IRS Publication 17)

If you received certain types of income, you may receive a Form 1099. For example, if you received taxable interest of $10 or more, the payer is required to provide or send Form 1099 to you no later than January 31, 2023 (or by February 15, 2023, if furnished by a broker). If it is mailed, you should allow adequate time to receive it before contacting the payer. If you still don’t get the form by February 15 (or by March 1, 2023, if furnished by a broker), call the IRS for help.”

Certain kinds of 1099 forms are described in Publication 17. Check the index for more info.
