If you’re looking for a general template and preview tool, free 1099 forms are readily available online. User beware, however. Before you waste a bunch of time sorting through “free” online resources that fail to deliver, you need to know what it takes to actually comply with your filing requirements. Here’s the deal: You can’t simply download and print 1099 forms off the Internet that you can then file the IRS. You need the special red-ink forms that the IRS can use to scan the information into their system.
Beware Free 1099 Form Software
A lot of websites out there will advertise their pay-for services with free promotional gimmicks. Most of these companies aren’t outright scams. Instead, the biggest danger is usually wasting hours of time searching for and reading about “free” forms that, in the end, can’t actually do much for your IRS filing forms.
That said, if you plan in advance and have only modest filing needs, there is one effective solution: Sending away to the IRS for a free 1099 form is a great idea, and if you have only one or two forms to fill out, handwriting the information may be a viable option. If, on the other hand, your business works with several contractors, employees, and third-party vendors, you’re going to benefit from the 1099 form preparation software from Advanced Micro Solutions (AMS).
For just, the Forms Filer platform is built with the data management software you need to prepare and print information on your free 1099 forms. Does it really save you time? Yes. Our powerful importing feature can readily transfer information from your existing database. For data entry, you can use a spreadsheet format or a screen that resembles the actual form. Auto-fill certain fields with default values for State Code and ID. Then, you can print the information on the pre-printed 1099 forms.
Cost-Effective Software for Growing Payroll and 1099 Filings
Better yet, with our Forms Filer, you can leverage this form preparation software even with higher-volume filing needs. Our solution supports up to 99,999 employees/recipients per payer. It also supports up to 1,999 payers/employers. This makes our software a popular choice for independent accounting professionals, as well as multi-company corporate accounting.
As they grow, many businesses will also convert their 1099 contractors into w-2 employees. Our Forms Filer software has support for w-2 and w-3 filings as well. It also creates the foundation for our catalogue of product modules. In other words, it’s easy to add more sophisticated software features that will enable your business to e-file with the IRS, process their payroll, and manage supplemental filing forms.
