Form and data entry screen, with many new boxes and changes.
The first release of the 1042-S Express for 2014 was released October 6, 2014.
The 1042-S software for 2014 has a completely new and different source file format (the
file extension is *.T42) and a completely different IRS e-File format as
mandated by the IRS (the file
extension is *.txt).
IMPORTING: If you need to import your 2014 data from Excel, two new sample
Excel spreadsheets are included with the 2014 program to demonstrate the new
format and new headers required. To learn more, bring up Microsoft Excel and
open the sample spreadsheet called "Ten42-Sample1-Import.xls". This spreadsheet
is found in the C:\T2014 folder. Then copy the first 7 rows. Then switch to the
1042-S program, right click the grid, and choose "Paste From Excel by Header
Name". Contact tech support at 361-884-1500 if you have any questions.
TESTING: Although 2014 1042-S software for 2014 has been tested for e-Filing,
it's always a good idea to send a test file to the IRS fire site.
Especially since this 1042-S is a new program. The IRS test site is available
only from January 5th, 2015 through February 20th, 2015. When available, the IRS
test site is https://FIRE.TEST.IRS.GOV
Set up a new account, if necessary. Please contact tech support at 361-884-1500 if you have questions or problems with test
files. However, do not wait until January to begin your 1042-S processing.
Bringing Files Forward: If your 1042-S foreign
payees are mostly the same each year, you can open last years 2013 source file
(.T42 file) with the new 2014 program. The 2014 program will convert the 2013
the new 2014 format by using the File Menu, then clicking "Open Pre-2014 T42
Then you may change the tax year, change the money amounts, add or
void a few payees by hand. Then save the file with a new name, using the
File Menu, then "SAVE AS". This creates a .T42 file into the correct new
Thanks for using 1042-S software in the past.
