The Best 1099 Form Tools

Streamline how you navigate the latest 1099 form updates with a variety of tools. Do research and ask vendors the following questions about their programs before you purchase software.

Does the software provide smooth integration? Make sure that any program allows users to import data from multiple sources. Check to see if your potential 1099 software integrates with third party sources, like Excel or ordinary text files. You do not want to invest in a system that is incompatible with your existing programs.

Can I easily align 1099 forms using the software? Save time with 1099 software that offers easy form alignment to users. Speed and accuracy will work in your favor as you handle any updates to the 1099 form process.

Does the program calculate selected fields? Improve accuracy while dealing with 1099 form updates. Eliminate manual calculations and minimize the risk of making avoidable 1099 errors during tax season.

What are the software’s electronic filing options? New form updates for 1099s will generally mean new filing requirements. Confirm your 1099 software provides electronic filing capabilities that meet your needs. Services can range from a flat fee program to a third-party provider that uses a fee-per-form model.
