Aatrix, the eFiling partner for Sage 100 and Sage 100cloud accounting software has released the deadlines by which files must be submitted if you are eFiling your tax forms for 2018. As you may know, all filing of tax forms within Sage 100 and Sage 100cloud supported versions are processed through the eFiling feature.
For the tax year 2018 you’ll need to be on Sage 100 or Sage 100cloud version 2016.5 or higher. Be sure to apply the latest Sage 100 product updates and the IRD so as to ensure compatibility with the eFiling process.
Printing of forms through the eFiling menu option is free. In many cases, these forms can be filed directly from the printer (check with your financial advisor on which forms can be “plain paper” filed). If you prefer you may have Aatrix electronically file your forms as well as mail copies to recipients. An additional fee applies for eFiling and mailing.
E-Filing Deadlines for 1099 and W-2 Forms
Sage 100 and Sage 100cloud both utilize Aatrix for 1099 and W2 form filing at year-end. These forms can be printed and mailed into the required tax authorities or, for a small fee, you can have Aatrix file the information electronically and distribute copies of the forms to recipients as required.
The deadline for submitting eFiling information for the 2018 tax season is as follows. Please consult with your tax or financial advisor to see whether any changes have been made to these deadlines.
If you are using Sage 100cloud please be sure to also install the latest IRD (Interim Release Download) which contains important year-end updates designed to accommodate your 2018 electronic filing with the IRS.
