The electronic form of 1099 filings, better known as e-filing, is a great way to avoid the hassle of obtaining special, scannable, red-ink forms, as well as making a separate mailing to the IRS and any relevant state tax agencies. Moreover, in a growing number of states, businesses are required to e-file to reduce the operating cost of the state tax agency. Somewhere around 4 out of every 5 businesses now e-file with the IRS.
The paper copy form of 1099 is slightly different. But before we get into comprehensive paper copy filing, it’s important to recognize that pretty much every company has at least some requirement to create a paper form of their 1099 payee information. That’s because—unless you’re one of the few companies enrolled in the IRS pilot program or you get explicit permission from the recipient—you’re required to mail a prepared paper copy to each payee that’s created a 1099 filing requirement.
How do you get these types of 1099 forms? Here’s the good news: If you don’t need the scannable, red-ink form, you can print blank 1099 forms on plain, white paper. How? Buy our Software-Generated Forms module, along with the platform software, and you’ll be able to do so on your ordinary office computer.
The Old-Fashioned Way of Filing 1099 Forms
If you have a more modest volume of filing requirements, if you’re looking more to save money rather than time, and/or if you have an easy way to procure the 1099 paper copies that you need, then a paper filing strategy might make the most sense for your business. At the same time, just because your business doesn’t need a comprehensive e-filing doesn’t mean you’re prepared to fill the forms out by hand. A simple, standalone software solution from Advanced Micro Solutions (AMS) can help you prepare and print the filing information on pre-printed forms. Quickly and reliably.
