For the Love of 1099s! It’s Time for JD Edwards Year-End


Are you prepared to meet upcoming year-end processing deadlines? As we approach 2022, it’s time to set up your E1 systems and processes to meet and stay compliant with 1099 and US Payroll reporting requirements.

E-File Threshold: the threshold for required electronic filing of most information returns such as 1099s and W2s remains unchanged for the 2021 tax year at 250 or more forms.

Note: form and alignment changes are necessary to be able to print data in the correct format, so it is important to use the latest available forms whether or not you are using new form boxes.
