1099 E-filing Service
We make 1099 e-filing as easy as 1-2-3.
File 1099, 1098, W-2, and ACA Forms.
Updated December 15, 2022
As part of our service, we electronically file your 1099, 1098, and ACA forms with the IRS and W-2 forms with the SSA. As a payee, you can submit paper forms with the IRS. But filing on paper is both time-consuming and tedious. Filing 1099 forms electronically is much more convenient. We make the filing process easy. All you need to do is sign up with us, enter or upload your information, and we do the rest. We e-file the forms with the IRS in bulk.
1099 forms are filed using the IRS’s FIRE (Filing Information Returns Electronically) system. ACA (Affordable Care Act) forms are filed using the IRS’s e-Services system. However, it would help if you had the correct software that can generate a file that is formatted according to the IRS specifications. These specifications change every year, so the software you use must be up-to-date with the latest guidelines. When using eFile360 for filing your 1099s, you can rest assured that your forms are filed timely and accurately.
When we electronically file your 1099s with the IRS, the IRS sends this information to individual states under the Combined Federal/State Filing (CF/SF) program. We participate in the CF/SF program, which means when we e-file your forms with the IRS, your state (if it participates in the program) automatically gets this information. Note: Not all states participate in this program, and your state may have additional requirements.
When using our service, you do not need to have your Transmitter Control Code (TCC) as we e-file all our forms using our TCC number only.
IRS approved e-File Provider
We are an IRS approved e-file provider, which means you can rest assured that you are in good hands when you use our 1099 e-filing service. We transmit information to the IRS on time. We keep track of all changes in specifications and make sure that our software is always updated with the latest changes. You don’t have to worry about staying on top of these ever-changing specifications.
Who must file electronically?
If you have 250 or more 1099 forms to file, you are required to file electronically. This 250-or-more requirement applies separately to each type of form. This filing threshold applies separately to original and correction forms.
Even if you have less than 250 forms, the IRS encourages you to file electronically.
In certain circumstances, it may be possible to get a waiver from filing electronically. The IRS offers hardship waivers for electronic filing.
If you are required to file electronically and file on paper, you may be subject to a penalty without a waiver. Additionally, there is a penalty for filing after the due date. Check out the 1099 filing penalties.
Form 1096 is the summary form that you must also file when filing on paper with the IRS. However, Form 1096 is not needed when filing electronically. As we e-file all our forms, you will not need to submit Form 1096, when you use our 1099 e-filing service.
In addition to filing the 1099 forms with the IRS, you are also required to provide 1099 statements to your recipients. Know more about out 1099 Printing and Mailing service.
If you want to print and mail recipient copies in-house but want us to e-file with the IRS, that is fine; we can do just that. Please choose the filing option that is right for you. We offer the following three filing options. To understand the difference, check out our delivery options.

Are you ready to save time and money to e‑file your information returns?
The IRS requires any corporation, partnership, employer, estate and or trust, who is required to file 250 or more information returns for the calendar year, must file electronically. IRS encourages filers who have less than 250 information returns to file electronically as well.
If you have less than 250 Information Return Forms (1099, etc.), you can file on paper. However, filing 1099s electronically is convenient than filing on paper. If filing on paper, if you have to get the correct paper form, fill it out and then mail it to the IRS. Instead, you can use a service provider like eFile360 and submit your forms electronically in minutes. If you have over 250 forms, then you are required to file electronically.
If you are filing on paper, you need to fill out Copy A of 1099, fill out the 1096 form and mail it to the IRS. However, if you are using a service provider, you can upload your data, and the service provider would file the forms electronically with the IRS.
The amount of the penalty is based on when you file the correct information return. It is $50 per 1099 if you file within 30 days of the due date, the maximum penalty of $194,000. The penalty increases to $100 per 1099 if you submit more than 30 days after the due date but by August 1; the maximum penalty is $556,500. If you file after August 1, the penalty increases to $280 per 1099 form, with a maximum of $3,392,000. Additionally, there are penalties for failure to furnish the payee statement. Please, check out 1099 filing penalties for more information.
We have different filing options and a tiered pricing structure. So the more forms you have lesser, you would pay per form. Please check out our pricing for details.

However, not all states participate in the CF/SF program, and your state may have some other requirements. Please check with your state.
An IRS Form 1096 is not required when you e-file. Form 1096 is a summary form and is only needed when filing on paper.
