What You Need to Know about Forms for 1099 Filings

With the Forms Filer and Software-Generated Forms from Advanced Micro Solutions (AMS), you can print most copies of the 1099 form. Copy A (the one meant to be filed with the IRS) is a special scannable copy that is prohibited from being software generated. These forms for 1099 filings are available at office supply stores, IRS office locations, or through the mail. Once you’ve identified which and how many 1099 forms your business needs, you’ll have taken the first step toward complying with the IRS filing requirements.

Preparing the forms for 1099 is a different matter altogether. Unless you’re handling no more than a couple payees/recipients, you’re probably not going to want to deal with filling out the forms by hand. It gets really old, really quickly. On the other hand, if you have to go 20 rounds with your software to make it work, you’re not saving yourself any time or headaches, either. Likewise, it’s not just the data entry that makes for fully complying with forms for 1099 filings. Information printing, data reporting, and e-filing capabilities are all part of a smart software solution.

That’s why AMS developed our W-2/1099 Forms Filer. This intuitive, menu-driven platform delivers an incredible range of data management features.

1099 business filings come in all shapes and sizes. They apply to mom-and-pop stores, independent contractors, and huge corporations. The filings are required by retirement fund managers (1099-R), real estate brokers (1099-S), and academic institutions (1099-Q). They’re handled by business owners, in-house accounting departments, and independent accountants.
