Yes! We automatically file Form 1099-MISC, 1099-DIV, 1099-INT, 1099-B and 1099-R under the Combined Federal/State Filing Program. This program can save you the extra step of filing separately in these participating states: AL, AZ, AK, CA, CO, CT, DE, DC, GA, HI, ID, IN, IA, KS, LA, ME, MD, MA, MI, MN, MS, MO, MT, NE, NJ, NM, NC, ND, OH, SC, UT, VA, VT and WI.
We automatically file form types 1099-DIV, 1099-INT, 1099-MISC and 1099-R in the IRS’ Combined Federal/State Filing Program, which makes the form data available to the 32 states that participate in the program. We do not e-file or mail city or local copies for you. To comply with non-participating states, or city and local requirements, you may need to print a copy of your forms and mail them to these agencies.

Not all states participate in this program, including tax-free states such as Nevada, Florida, Washington and Wyoming. If you have questions regarding state filings, we suggest that you talk with your accountant or attorney for clarification.

Yes. You can add an unlimited number of payers and recipients under a single account. When filing a form, simply select the payer and recipient from the drop-down boxes on the form. All contact information will be filled in automatically.

Filing a correction form:
If you discover any error after you have paid for the forms you must file a separate correction form. Corrected forms must be submitted to the IRS and a corrected recipient copy must be provided to the recipient as soon as possible.
