The pre-release is normally issued at the end of February, before all the IRS specifications are ready for 2019. It is updated occasionally during the year for the latest forms and instructions to recipients, as these become available from the IRS. Most of the 2019 forms have not been released.

The pre-release is made for our customers who need to print and create 2019 recipient copies all year long, or just want to enter data early to keep up. For example, 1099-S Forms for real estate closings during the year, 1098-C automobile donations, 1099-Misc one time settlements, 1099-C cancellation of debt notices, going out of business closings, and other reasons. The IRS will not allow you to file by paper or electronically for tax year 2019 until January 15, 2020.

When you purchase the 1099 Express pre-release early, you will automatically get the full 1099 Express program at no extra cost when it comes out. Your pre-release program will notify you automatically when the full version is available, just open it occasionally, it will automatically check for new versions. You can force the program to check for a new version by clicking the Internet MENU, then "Check for New Version". The full 1099 Express program comes out only after the IRS issues Publication 1220 (the technical changes for e-Filing formats), usually after August. Warning, the pre-release may contain certain forms and instructions from the previous year that are not yet defined by the IRS. Please contact us if you have questions.

Previous Years Programs
Past year programs are NOT RECOMMENDED, especially for 1099-Misc Forms, the MOST COMMON Form, and all other forms.
Installing past years programs causes trouble;  double-click on .src files will invoke the wrong program.

You don't need past year programs because:

The Current Year Program can PRINT ALL PAST YEAR FORMS.
The Current Program can create and handle corrections and originals for all past years.
The current Program CAN E-File PAST YEAR Originals and Corrections to the IRS.

Installing past year programs WILL NOT RECOVER YOUR DATA, from an old computer or give the location of your data.
Past year programs will not work with pre-printed, red-lined IRS Copy A Forms.
