Fall Renewal/Confirmation Notices
Summer is officially over, which means it's time for Fall Renewal and Confirmation Notices. If you have not renewed your CFS products for 2017, you may have already received a Fall Renewal Notice; if you have renewed, you will soon receive a Confirmation Notice listing the CFS products you have previously ordered this year.

If you haven't renewed, please consider the following benefits of renewing now:

  • Avoid the stress of having to place your order when your office and ours are at their busiest.
  • Resolve potential software or hardware problems before tax season begins by installing and testing your software early.

Plus, if you renew by October 31st, you will receive:

  • 10% off the first-time purchase of additional CFS software or network upgrades, and
  • 10% off forms, envelopes, and tax supplies.

W2/1099 Released
W2/1099 E-File Add-OnW2/1099 has been released and is available for download. If you already have another 2016 Payroll System program installed (941/940, LivePayroll, or Corrector), you don't need to install the full program. Just make sure you have installed the latest Payroll System update and are using the correct license code.

If you purchased W2/1099 after you purchased other CFS programs, the license code you received when you purchased those other programs will not work for W2/1099. You must use the new license code you received when you purchased W2/1099. To update your license code, select "Firm Information..." from the File menu, and enter your new license code in the License Code field. You can obtain your current license code by logging in to your MyCFS account, here.

For tips on using W2/1099, including detailed instructions on how to obtain and update your license code, see the Year-end Forms Filing Tips for W-2s and 1099s video on our Instructional Videos page.

Reminder: January 31st is the new deadline for filing W-2s with the SSA—whether you use paper forms or e-file. January 31st is also the deadline for filing Form 1099-MISC with the IRS by paper or e-file, if you are reporting nonemployee compensation payments in box 7.

CDs and Form Starter Kits. This year, CDs and Form Starter Kits have been shipped separately: CDs by first-class mail, Starter Kits by standard mail. You will receive a CD containing W2/1099 if you paid for the CD shipping option when you ordered the program. You will receive a Form Starter Kit—an assortment of red forms, envelopes, and blank perforated stock—if you are a first-time purchaser of W2/1099 or if you renewed it by May 31st. Because they were shipped by standard mail, Starter Kits may take up to several weeks to arrive.

Please Inspect Your Order
When you receive an order of tax forms or supplies from us, please make sure that you inspect it immediately. Verify that we sent the correct items, and that there is nothing you forgot to order. Keep in mind that items may be damaged in transit.

Damages or discrepancies must be reported within 14 days of receiving your order. Our supplies return policy covers you for 30 days, but tax forms cannot be returned for refund after December 15th. Refunds do not include shipping charges.

IRS Warns of New Scam
In a recent Special Edition Tax Tip, the IRS warns taxpayers and tax professionals of a new scam involving fake tax bills related to the Affordable Care Act. The fake CP2000 notices may arrive by email, as an attachment, or even by mail.
