E-filing Information Returns for the First Time?
W2/1099 E-file Add-onIf you plan on using W2/1099 and its e-file add-on to e-file W2s and/or 1099s for the first time, make sure you have the following:

To e-file Forms W-2 via Social Security's Business Services Online:

To e-file Forms 1099 via the IRS FIRE System:

  • an EIN (file Form SS-4) and
  • a TCC number (file Form 4419)

You must apply for a TCC number at least 45 days before you plan to file. Passwords for both Social Security and IRS web sites must be changed at least every 90 days to keep them from expiring. Users are advised to change their passwords early to avoid any problems.

For information on how to use the W2/1099 e-file add on, see the Payroll System help file and the following videos on our Instructional Video page:

Don't forget that January 31st is the deadline for paper filing or e-filing W-2s, as well as Forms 1099-MISC reporting nonemployee compensation in box 7.

Envelope B and Form 1099
Our 3-7/8" x 8-3/8" double-window Envelope B is designed for mailing the 3-up 1099 recipient copies generated by our W2/1099 program. The envelope is not wide enough to accommodate a standard 8-1/2 by 11 inch sheet of paper, but it is just the right width for our 1099 3-up perforated stock, once the vertical tear strip has been removed.

Of course, you can print your 1099's on standard paper and cut them down to size. Or you can use standard envelopes and afix labels. But why not save yourself some work? Together, our 1099 3-up perforated stock and Envelope B are a great buy—especially when you order before October 31st and take 10% off the regular price. Click here to order.
