What is state filing?

All 1099 forms must be submitted to the IRS and the recipient, but some forms must also be submitted to the Department of Revenue for certain states. With the new 1099-NEC and 1099-MISC, many states' requirements are in flux.

Starting with tax year 2020, Track1099 will offer a 1099 state e-filing service to certain states. For those states we don't yet support, we will give you the file to upload. Please see our State E-file video.

Note: We do not yet provide any state files or support for W-2, 1095-B/C or 1042-S.

Rejected State File Troubleshooting

  1. Please thoroughly read the email from us that contains the error messages from the state.

  2. This email was sent to the team leader, if you are on a team.

  3. Even if you disagree with the errors, please correct your recipients as they say. We will auto-resend.

  4. Payer errors cannot be fixed electronically at this time. You will have to send paper to that state.

  5. To send paper, go to Downloads->Big green button. Copy B and the summary page in place of a 1096 are sufficient to send.

  6. Go to your state's Dept of Revenue web site to find the mailing address.

Pennsylvania: PA requires you to enter PA Payer ID, if you have one, even if you are not withholding for that recipient. If you do not have a Payer ID, leave all state withholding fields blank. If you get an error "TAX_RETURN_STATUS", then your payroll company has filed your W-2s and PA cannot also accept 1099s electronically. Yes, this is odd. You can either sign up for a second PA Payer ID and use that to file your 1099s or you can send paper to: PA Department of Revenue, Bureau of Individual Taxes, 1099 NEC Forms, PO Box 280509, Harrisburg, PA 17128-0509

If you have PA withholding on your recipients and have had us successfully e-file them, please do the following to fill in your REV-1667. If you sent paper, you will have to fill in and send a paper REV-1667.

  • Go to E-tides, click Enter E-tides and login.
  • Click "File Return/Payment" on the left side.
  • Select "Employer Withholding Tax" under 1099 Filings and click "Next".
