1042-S Software: Test Files

Filers are not required to file a 1042-S test file.  But the transmission of test files to the IRS is encouraged.

Testing is typically available for 2-months beginning in early January and running until the end of February. The following file status results will display:

Good, Federal Reporting – The test file is good for federal reporting.
Bad – The test file contained errors. You can click on the filename and see the list of errors associated with that test file.
