Today, more and more small businesses are discovering that the most effective way to fill their productivity goals is to hire independent contractors, rather than employees. Moreover, while major, global corporations still drive the perception of the modern economy, small businesses are often even more likely to perpetrate this trend. In fact, a single individual may be an independent contractor responsible for issuing a handful or a dozen 1099-MISC forms to the current year’s roster of subcontractors. In this case, our platform software for a fill-in 1099 form is likely what you’re after.
Discover our Forms Filer and Fill-In 1099 Form Software
The Forms Filer platform from Advanced Micro Solutions (AMS) is just what you need to quickly and dependably go from blank 1099 forms to fully prepared and printed forms. The intuitive, menu-driven display, demo download, knowledge base, tech support, and Live Chat feature ensure you have full leverage of the software from the beginning without hitting any snags during the entire filing form process. Our essential fill-in 1099 form features include both data management and printing capabilities:
- Data Entry: Multiple options for entering data include a spreadsheet format as well as a screen that resembles the actual form. You can import data from any number of common file types. Common payee files and default values for things like State ID code eliminate a ton of duplicate data entry.
- Data Printing: Easy form alignment ensures error-free printing. As your business grows and your filing needs increase, you can also take advantage of our automated, large-batch printing feature.
Undue Stress and Flawed Handwriting Skills
Even basic fill-in 1099 software filing solution can go a long way toward improving your tax-season forms filing experience. One of the big advantages you have as a small business with limited filing requirements is that you can send away for 1099 Copy A forms (the special red-ink version) ahead of time. Within 10 business days, the IRS sends you a certain number of free copies. Larger businesses may have to buy extra copies at an office supply store, or invest in our E-File software, which eliminates the need for these forms altogether.
Here’s the thing, though. Filling these forms out by hand can be stressful. Simply typos can be fixed with notation, but you have a limited number of forms. And multiple lines with crossed-out information may actually start to impact your reputation with your subcontractors. Plus, if you don’t have the best handwriting, the information may be hard to read or even ambiguous, leading to a bunch of hassles down the road. If it starts to feel like you have to treat the forms like calligraphy, it won’t take many forms at all to start to eat away at your spare time and nerves.
