Payroll System Overview:
The CFS Payroll System, a complete and affordable payroll solution, is made up of four fully integrated programs:
Payroll System Suite ™ LivePayroll ™ (incl. 941/940)
941/940 ™
W2/1099 ™
Payroll Corrector ™
 W2/1099 E-File add-on ™

Each program can be purchased separately or as a suite (call 800-343-1157 to order).
(W2/1099 E-File add-on ™ requires the W2/1099 ™ and is not included with the purchase of the suite.)

Choose the program combination that is right for your firm's payroll needs. Paycheck information entered into the 941/940 ™ accumulates and transfers to the W2/1099 ™. Should it be necessary to do a corrected return, 941/940 ™ and W2/1099 ™ data transfers to the Payroll Corrector ™.
