A 1096 is not required for e-file according to the IRS General 1099 instructions, Part E. Neither is a W-3 required when e-filing according to W-2/W-3 Instructions page 2, column 1 under Business Services Online (BSO).
Clients filing 1042-S do have to file the 1042 via paper with the IRS. We do not file for you.
If you do not have your contractor's SSN/EIN, you may select "I don't know the TIN" and we'll fill in blanks for you.
We strongly recommend that you try our inexpensive W-9 service to obtain a valid TIN before e-filing as the IRS will issue your company a CP2100 for backup withholding if you do not submit an accurate TIN. Please see the 1099 instructions.
Track1099 is approved by the IRS to e-file 1099-series, 1042-S, Affordable Care Act (ACA), and by the Social Security Administration to e-file W-2 and W-2C using government secure protocols. The SSA forwards W-2s to the IRS automatically.
No 940/941/943/944 Filing Track1099 does not e-file these forms. Please print, sign and mail them to the IRS.
