E-filing Thresholds are Changing Drastically!
In an effort to modernize the department and serve taxpayers better, the Department of Treasury has implemented major changes in requirements for businesses to e-file 1099 & W2 forms.
As part of the Taxpayer First Act, many businesses will no longer be able to submit paper forms. One of the main changes of the act is the lowering of the threshold of information returns in order to be required to e-file.
The following filing thresholds below will be enforced in the upcoming calendar years:
2020: Companies with 100+ Forms Must E-File
2021: Companies with 10+ Forms Must E-File
FOR PARTNERSHIPS, the thresholds are:
2020: Partnerships with 100+ Forms Must E-File
2021: Partnerships with 50+ Forms Must E-File
The act also requires that all partnerships with more than 100 partners file on magnetic media. Partnerships for IRS purposes are small businesses with 2 or more owners that are not classified as sole proprietorships or corporations.
