Forms Available for Tax Year 2023 – and their purpose
These are the forms that businesses are generally required to file at the end of the year to report payroll, payments, employment information, and more to the IRS/SSA.
The Social Security Administration (SSA) requires employers to file W-2 Forms annually to report employee wages and withholdings. Some states also mandate a W-2 or reconciliation form for reporting to their respective agencies. Employers in Puerto Rico must file the W-2 PR. Additionally, there are specific filings for state requirements.
The deadline to file W-2s with the IRS and distribute copies to employees is January 31, 2024.
The IRS mandates the filing of 1099 Forms annually to report various types of payments made in the course of business. Common forms include the 1099-NEC for reporting non-employee compensation, 1099-MISC for miscellaneous payments like prizes, rents, and attorney fees. Notably, there has been a change in reporting requirements for 1099-K, impacting more businesses and individual taxpayers who will receive this form. TaxBandits supports all of the following 1099s:
Under the Affordable Care Act, employers and insurance providers offering health insurance coverage to employees or individuals must report this data to the IRS using Forms 1095-B and 1095-C. The IRS utilizes this information to verify that the coverage meets minimum quality and affordability standards.
We’ve given our W-9 tool a serious upgrade. It’s now super easy for businesses to ask for and collect tax info from vendors and Independent contractors. Plus, we’ve added TIN Matching to ensure the accuracy of EIN/SSN details using the IRS database.
New 1099 Forms
We’ve expanded our support to cover Forms 1099-A and 1099-LTC. Check out our website for the complete list of supported 1099 forms.
TIN Matching for Precision
For the 2023 tax year, we will be introducing TIN Matching. This nifty feature lets businesses verify their recipient’s TIN information before filing forms with the IRS/SSA. We’ll double-check these against the IRS database to make sure your TIN info is spot on, avoiding any filing hiccups.
