We’ve had several inquiries about the proper forms to use when filing 2016 W-2 and 1099’s through Sage 100 / Sage 100c.
Sage has this knowledge entry which suggests:
Sage 100 includes “print and sign” tax forms functionality for payroll tax forms using eFiling & Reporting (NOTE: You can print the fileable forms for NO extra cost – if you want to eFile or have Sage handle the distribution then there is a separate fee).
This feature eliminates the need for some pre-printed forms — allowing you to print on plain paper instead.
However, IRS regulations require that employee copies of Form W-2 (Copies B, C, and 2) and Form 1099 (except Copy A) be printed on perforated paper and individual filing instructions be given to each employee (IRS Publication 1141 Sec. 2.05 and 2.19 and IRS Publication 1179 Sec. 4.5.3). Sage Checks and Forms offers these plain paper forms in the required perforated format.
2016 W2 and W3 Forms – Sage 100
Employee W2 (Copy B, C and 2-Copy 2s) = Blank 4 part perforated with Employee notice on back (Sage Forms part # LW2BLANK4 or LW2BK4DWS)
Federal W2 (Copy A) = Print to Plain Paper (The Federal W2-SSA copy cannot be printed on perforated paper)
Federal W3 = Print to Plain Paper (The Federal W3-SSA copy cannot be printed on perforated paper)
The Federal Copy A & W3 forms do not need to be printed on pre-printed forms with red ink, please see Additional Information section below.
State – Copy 1 (prints 4 employees per sheet) = system will prompt you to print to Blank 4 part perforated (LW2BLNK4NB) but please contact the State agency for their specific W2 printing/perforation requirements
Employer W2 (Copy D) (prints 4 employees per sheet) = Print to Plain Paper -or- Blank 4 part perforated
Employee 1095-B – Blank Full page w/instructions on back (Sage Forms #L1095BBLK)
Employee 1095-C – Blank Full page w/instructions on back (Sage Forms #L1095CBLK)
** Forms 1094 and 1095 Federal & Employer copies can be to plain paper
**Note: When using eFiling and Reporting to print ACA 1095 forms, Aatrix has designed their form templates on both of the 1095 forms to print the employee’s address in alignment with the existing W2 envelope, which will help reduce costs.
2016 1099/1096 Forms – Sage 100
Recipient 1099 (Federal, 2-Copy 2’s and Copy B) = Blank 4 part perforated form (Sage Forms part # L99BLANK4 or L99BK4DWS)
Note: The recipient notice is not printed on the backs of these blank forms, you will need to print the recipient instructions to plain paper from within 1099 eFiling viewer screen.
Federal 1099 (Copy A)** = Copy A must be printed on official pre-printed federal forms RED ink. Please contact Sage Forms for specific part # applicable to the type of 1099 forms you will be printing (MISC,INT or DIV)
