You use the 1099 Electronic Filing form to create an electronic file to submit 1099 forms through the IRS FIRE (Filing Information Returns Electronically) System using a modem or by mailing them on magnetic tape or diskettes.
When you finish filing, Accounts Payable automatically prints a summary report of the information you filed, which you can keep with your records.
Note: You should refer to IRS documentation for information on electronic filing requirements before you submit 1099s electronically. For example, the IRS does not accept compressed files. If the resulting IRSTAX file is larger than 1.4 megabytes, you will have to submit a file that spans two or more diskettes.
