What You Need to Know about Printing 1099 Forms

It’s easy to think in this day and age that by investing a little money in printer hardware and the right software solution you can print all your own blank tax forms. For example, the Software-Generated Forms module includes the ability to print MICR checks with the corresponding hardware and magnetic toner. This product also delivers the capacity for printing 1099 forms on plain white paper, where it’s allowed.

For those who don’t know, the IRS prohibits Copy A of 1099 forms from being software-generated. That’s because these forms need to be scannable. You can spot these forms with their tell-tale red ink. Still, this doesn’t mean you need to leave the office to take care of your forms filing requirements. When you e-file directly with the IRS using our E-File software solutions, you don’t need Copy A at all. You can also ask the IRS to mail a certain number of forms to you. This takes about 10 business days.

Printing on 1099 Forms

Some printing needs are unavoidable. Copy B, the recipient copy, must be mailed out as a paper copy. Whether you find your own blank filing forms or print them out with our Software-Generated Forms, our W-2/1099 Forms Filer platform already includes the ability to print your filing information on pre-printed forms. With easy form alignment and large-batch print jobs, you can handle even large-volume filing needs with automated and error-free software features. This printing capability also extends to a large number of data reporting features including tables, worksheets, mailing labels, client letters, and recipient lists.
