Free Option 1: Our 1099Express customers may e-File 1099-Misc (the most common, deadline January 31, 2020) to the IRS at no cost with their login code from the IRS. The login code is called the TCC or Transmitter Control Code. It is easy to get. This login code allows you to upload any number of Companies/Entities. You need only ONE TCC, for all companies. Never order more than one TCC from the IRS.

To order your TCC login code, got to https://fire.irs.gov. Then create your account with password, PIN, etc. At the Main Menu, click the Fill-in-Form 4491. Reminder: Be sure to print your IRS confirmation page when you e-File your own forms.

Free Option 2: Form 1099-Misc, the most common type of 1099 form for vendors, contractors, etc. You may file to the IRS using scanner ready paper forms. 1099 Express can PRINT ON those forms. The 1099-Misc forms may then be mailed to the IRS, (deadline January 31, 2020). Note: Maximum of 250 forms per Company/Filer/Payer.
