When it comes to responsive, versatile software, it takes more than just nominal support for different 1099 forms. It’s also what these forms likely say about the businesses behind them. Real estate sales and brokers are often niche firms that deal with form 1099-S on a regular basis but have few other filing requirements. Meanwhile, more complex business models may require a combination of w-2 employee, 1099 contractor, 940 unemployment, and 1095 ACA filing support. International firms may have regular 1042-S filing needs for their dealings with foreign persons and institutions.
Software for any 1099 Filing Service
Put another way, different 1099 forms are often connected to additional tax and payroll filings. Many mom-and-pop companies continue to file with mailed paper copies, even as they look for the convenience of software-based form preparation and data printing on their pre-printed forms. Alternatively, our E-File Direct and E-File Services are preferred by small businesses looking to take comply with their filing requirements entirely online. Even many independent payroll and accounting firms leverage our software solutions to increase efficiency and drive down costs for their clients.
With this in mind, AMS has developed a modular software solution that enables our business customers to build a software package that’s tailored to their different 1099 forms filing services. Cloud-based software subscription fees make little sense in this space to begin with. That’s because filing forms are a discrete, annualized business software need. Here’s our catalog of software products and prices.
- W-2/1099 Forms Filer (required platform)
- Payroll Module
- E-File Direct
- Affordable Care Act Filer
- 1042-S Filer
- Software-Generated Forms
- Forms Filer Plus
Ongoing subscription fees may not make a lot of sense as a pricing model, but that doesn’t mean there’s no room for third-party e-filing software services. Now, keep in mind before you go down this road, that we also have our product module, E-File Direct, that enables you to e-file an unlimited number of forms for one flat-fee price. But for smaller or more niche e-filing needs, this third-party vendor offers six different categories of e-filing services.
- Federal E-file
- Recipient Print/Mail
- Fed E-file & Print/Mail
- CD (Payer Copies saved to CD)
- Fed/State E-file & Print/Mail
- State E-file
These fees are charged per form and per service with sensible discounts given to larger e-file orders.
