The 3 Big Questions for Your 1099 Printable Form

There is no single feature or service need for a 1099 printable form. Instead, there are 3 big questions that represent different methods for sourcing your 1099 forms and preparing the printed forms for filing.

  • What 1099 Forms are Printable? This is not so much a question about the type of 1099 form, so much as the copy. The IRS prohibits Copy A from being software-generated. That’s because the form must be a special, scannable, red-ink paper copy. (Copy A is what the employer/payer files directly with the IRS, and they don’t like to enter the information manually.)That’s not the end of the story, however. You don’t need a Copy A 1099 form at all if you’re e-filing with the IRS. And once you remove the need for this copy, Copy B (to the recipient) and Copy C (archival purposes) can be readily printed on plain, white paper.
  • How is a 1099 Printable Form Created? With our W-2/1099 Forms Filer and Software-Generated Forms, that’s how. With our platform software solution and this add-on product, you’ll have the printing capability you need to take care of your filing requirements. To remove the need for the special, red-ink forms, the E-File Software from AMS is also a popular add-on software choice.
  • How do You Print Prepared Form Information? No matter how you source your paper form 1099 copies, you can use our W-2/1099 Forms Filer to prepare and print the information onto the form copies. This includes all the back-end data management support you might need. For data entry, we offer file importing, auto-defined fields, and common files that eliminate duplicate data entry.
