How to Print 1099 Forms Online

To print 1099 forms online is to take advantage of an efficient filing method that you can complete from your business office. That’s assuming you’re willing to e-file where you can and that you have the right software solution in place. You see, the 1099 copy to be sent to the IRS is prohibited from being software-generated. This is a special, scannable, “red-ink” 1099 copy. (You didn’t think the IRS entered everyone’s 1099 data manually did you?) The thing is you don’t need a paper copy of the 1099 IRS form if you e-file.

And yet, this doesn’t necessarily mean that you can take care of all your business filing requirements online, either. Confused? That’s because, unless the recipient gives you explicit permission to provide the form electronically, you have to mail out this 1099 Copy B form. For this reason, when payers and employers are looking for print 1099 forms online, it’s often explicitly for this mailed recipient form. Moreover, for businesses operating in states that mandate e-filing, a combination of mailed forms and electronic filing is likely required.

How our Software Solution Works

The W-2/1099 Forms Filer is our foundational software platform that includes a core set of features that are essential to pretty much any forms filing service need. Take data entry, for example. The software provides for data importing, default values for specific fields, common payee files for data entry across multiple forms, and multiple data entry displays (enter information on a screen that resembles the actual form or through a spreadsheet format.

It’s powerful, too, with support for up to 1,999 payers and up to 99,999 payees per payer. You can network your entire office computers together. You can email tables, worksheets, and data reports directly from the platform. You can also set up automated, large-batch printing so that your data printing is completed during overnight hours. After all, blank 1099 forms alone can’t fulfill your 1099 filing requirements. With more than just a few forms to file, writing the forms out by hand quickly gets really tiresome and time-consuming.

AMS customers can also implement additional filing features through our catalog of product modules. Our platform creates a sophisticated module interaction that provides versatility and custom software packaging. Get precisely the software support you need without overpaying for features that you don’t need and won’t use.

Print 1099 Forms Online with AMS

To print 1099 forms online, simply buy our W-2/1099 Forms Filer with our Software-Generated Forms module. For $158 combined for both products, you can start printing your own 1099 forms. But again, this alone will not take care of all your forms filing. Prefer to save a few dollars and have only a handful of 1099 recipients to file for? Plan ahead and request free 1099 forms directly from the IRS. The process can take about 10 business days. Larger volume 1099 forms may need to be purchased from an office supply store.

E-Filing Solutions

Alternately, you can add our E-File software to your AMS package and handle all your business’s filing requirements from the office. For $154, our E-File Direct product enables you to file an unlimited number of forms for this flat-fee rate. It’s also a popular choice among people and businesses looking to otherwise print 1099 forms online. For more niche e-filing services and per form fees, we also partner with a third-party software vendor.
