STATE DIRECT REPORTING

The Combined Federal State Filing (CFSF) Program allows filers to submit forms directly to participating states when electronic filing with the IRS. The 1099 Pro Service Bureau automatically submits forms to the CFSF on behalf of filers at no additional cost. Unfortunately, numerous states and tax form types do not participate in this program. Thus, 1099 Pro customers turn to 1099 Pro Enterprise, Corporate Suite and W-2 Pro software to generate their own state subset files suitable for filing directly with those states that require direct reporting. Additionally, an increasing number of states require earlier, January 31st, reporting deadlines, such as: AR, AZ, CT, DE, GA, KS, ME, MN, MO*, MS*, MT, and NE. Other states, such as OR and WI, now allow only electronic filing—as opposed to paper filing—of virtually all tax forms. Filers reporting in these states should be aware of the updated filing requirements for Tax Year 2017 and ensure they have the proper 1099 Pro software in place before proceeding. 1099 Pro even provides a specialized utility, eFileViewer®, that allows customers to edit state files in order to add state specific information, such as the state reconciliation form data, that can be required in the states’ electronic files.

*Filing deadline is February 28th

SERVICE BUREAU SAVES TIME, EFFORT AND MONEY

On 12/10/2017 the IRS introduced Secure Access, a required two-factor authentication process for those users uploading directly to the FIRE Site. Users unable or not interested in completing Secure Access should consider the 1099 Pro Service Bureau for their eFiling and bulk Name/TIN matching needs.

1099 Pro, W-2 Pro, 1042-S Pro and 8966 Pro 2017 are available now for immediate purchase and download. Competitively priced, the demo version converts quickly into the full version upon purchase. Professional, Enterprise and Corporate Suite versions—in single and multi-user installs—are available to meet all users’ needs. Technical Support is always complimentary.
