All government copies must be printed in a 2up format (2 forms per page)

Employee copies may be printed in a 2up, 3up or 4up format (2, 3 or 4 forms per page; also called ‘condensed forms). All of the copies for a single employee will print on one page. You simply fold and mail – no need to separate and collate forms! Your software may support these formats, be sure to check its functionality before ordering.

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:

2021: Companies with 10+ Forms Must E-File

2021: Partnerships with 50+ Forms Must E-File

The act also requires that all partnerships with more than 10 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.
