What's new (2010)?
 

Tax Year 2010 1099, 1042-S and W-2/W-3 software is available for download.  We list out changes that have been made.

2010 Software - New Features and Enhancements  (1099)
  • Both the 1099-OID and 1099-A have been removed from the software.  We can only sell the 1099-A to banks or financial institutions.  Therefore, before ordering, we will request your FDIC and/or ABA routing number and will phone or e-mail the passcode to register the software to the phone number or email address associated with that registered bank or financial institution.  We can not and will not sell the 1099-A or OID to individuals.
  • Ability to handle large databases both through importing, print and eFiling.  The software can import, print and eFile over 2.5 million records per file starting from an Excel or CSV file.
  • Improved internet help.

2010 Form Changes and Additions (1099)

  • New Form 3921 and Form 3922 and Form 8935.  2010 will be the first reporting year for Forms 3921 and 3922.

  • Almost all of the instructions for the payee have changed for each information return.  As an example, the 1099-PATR includes this additional text in the instructions:

Recipient’s identification number. For your protection, this form may show
only the last four digits of your social security number (SSN), individual
taxpayer identification number (ITIN), or adoption taxpayer identification
number (ATIN). However, the issuer has reported your complete identification
number to the IRS, and, where applicable, to state and/or local governments.

SSN masking was new in 2009 and continues in 2010 and the 2010 forms include discussion of SSN masking.

  • Form 1099-R renamed distribution code E to Distributions under Employee Plans Compliance System (EPCRS), formerly Excess Annual Additions under Section

  • See Part A, Sec. 8 for changes in correction procedures. Incorrect TIN, payee name and/or address requires a two step correction.

  • Stricter edits to Combined Federal State Filing processing were put in place which could cause files to be rejected if not properly coded under the guidelines of Part A, Section 10. Test files are recommended for all filers in the program.

  • Form 4419 Application for Filing Information Returns Electronically (FIRE), Box 3 must contain an Employer Identification Number (EIN). IRS will no longer issue Tranmitter Control Codes (TCC) to a social security number.
