Do You Need to File Form 1099?

If you’re looking for general information about whether or not you need to file form 1099, we recommend this resource from the IRS. Indeed, you can find a number of informational resources directly on the IRS site, but this type of guidance is no substitute for active software support that can shepherd you through the entire filing process.

The W-2/1099 Forms Filer from Advanced Micro Solutions (AMS) offers an intuitive, menu-driven platform and sophisticated module interaction that allow businesses to pick and choose which products make the most sense for their accounting needs and filing requirements. This versatility rivals that of cloud-based software services with an even more appealing flat-fee price point. A standalone Forms Filer solution costs just.

When Do You Need to File Form 1099?

The deadline to file form 1099 is staggered based on the different stages of the form filing process. Specifically, the deadline to send out recipient form copies is January 31st. Next, the deadline to file with the IRS is the end of February if paper filing, or the end of March if electronically filing. Naturally, recipient and end-of-year filings have the well-known mid-April filing deadline.

The best time to file form 1099 is typically sooner rather than later, but you don’t want to rush yourself into errors, either. That’s why it’s so important that you have a software solution that is both efficient and reliable with its essential data management technologies. You want to file quickly but also without having to file an addendum when an error is discovered.

With this in mind, let us give you a couple practical examples of how our software can help optimize both priorities:

  • Multiple Data Entry Options: In addition to powerful data importing and file transfers, in addition to defining “default” values for certain fields on your forms, you’ll also have multiple options for original data entry. Looking to reduce errors and increase clarity? Enter your information on a screen that resembles the actual forms. Or, have you “over-learned” 1099 form preparation, and you deal with the kind of volume for which every efficiency matters? In this case, you probably want to enter the data through our spreadsheet format instead.
  • Data Accuracy: Our data reporting software capabilities generate these totals for SSNs and TINs for checking data entry accuracy. But this is just one of the easier to recognize features. From backup and restore to easy form alignment, your entire data collection, form preparation, printing, and filing pipeline will be protected by AMS’s underlying software solution.
  • Data Communications: With our software, you’ll also be able to email secure data reports directly from the Forms Filer platform. Likewise, network and multiple PC installation ensure the entire office and accounting team stays on the same page without sacrificing data security.
