Quick & Easy 1099 and W2 from Information Returns, Inc.

Electronic Filing Options

We support Federal electronic filing of forms 1099 and W2 as well as electronic filing of many state forms as options for both our Windows Lite and our Windows Unlimited series of Quick & Easy 1099/W2 for Windows.

These have become increasingly popular options for our customers, particularly in view of Federal encouragement of electronic filing for employers/payers with fewer than 250 employees/payees. 

States have their own requirements for electronic filing, of course, with some states mandating electronic filing for as few as 20 Form W-2s. Virtually all states now encourage electronic or magnetic filing for even the smallest filers.

There's no question that more electronic filing at the state level will be required soon.  Here's an example. 

In Minnesota, for tax year 2011, electronic filing of both Form W-2 and Form 1099 is required if there are more than 10 forms.   

Question:  Can I get both electronic filing AND the Black and White printing option in the same product?

Answer:  Yes.  Our electronic filing versions of both Windows Lite and Windows Unlimited include the B/W print option.

Question:  For which states do you support electronic and/or magnetic filing?

Answer:  Here are the states for which we currently provide electronic (or magnetic) filing of Form W-2 or Form 1099.

Question:  I need to file electronically in a state not listed above.  Can you help me?

Answer:  We prioritize the states for which we add electronic filing support based on the customer requests we receive. In fact, due to customer requests, we've recently added support for two more states, and still  more states can be on the way if you need them -- but only if you tell us!  If you need to file electronically in a state not listed above, we recommend that you call our Technical Support unit promptly and discuss your electronic filing needs with them.  The Tech Support phone number is (860)364-0615.
