A: Start last years 1099Express program. Click on the File Menu. Choose RE-OPEN. Files for 20xx are normally in the yellow folder in your 'C' drive under 'E20xx', but may have been saved elsewhere, such as a network drive.
A: There is no "upgrade" each year, but instead a new Program is created based on the changes implemented by the IRS. Go to our website at www.1099Express.com and chose PRODUCTS & PRICING, selecting the appropriate 1099Express program for your needs. When downloading, chose RUN or OPEN instead of SAVE for easier installation.
If you see a Security Warning, click YES to continue. All programs are initially installed in demo mode. After a confirmed purchase, you will receive an email containing your activation code.
A: The activation code is provided after payment is made. Customers may: Pay by credit card online at www.1099Express.com and click on PRODUCTS & PRICING;
A: Please print the Check Order Form and mail it along with a check for your total purchase price. As soon as we receive the check, we will email you with the activation code.
A: Yes. However, there is a shipping and handling charge of $15.00. The $15.00 shipping and handling charge does not purchase the Program. You must still purchase a current year's program to obtain an activation code. There is no shipping and handling charge when you download the software. There is no advantage to the CD-ROM because it contains exact copies of the same programs and files you can download at our website. The CD-ROM is not updated as often as our website and may not contain the latest software.
A: No. Each year 1099Express offers an entirely new Program, installed into a new folder each year. Access to the Program does not need a password but will require an activation code. If you want access to previous year's password protected data files on someone else's computer, you should contact your internal technology support.
A: The 1099 Express series programs are not designed to be installed on a server and used by multiple people from one install. Our software is set up to be activated per user and can encounter issues with being activated if used on a server. The files used by our software can be placed on a shared drive or server for storing and access for multiple users that each have a properly activated version of our software on there workstation.
A: No, it is not necessary. Multiple files from the same company under the same Tax Identification Number are acceptable to the IRS. Also, it is not necessary to combine payees in a file. For example, contractor John Doe was paid for 5 jobs by 2 different company arms. It's OK if he gets 3 separate 1099-Misc from one group and 2 additional 1099-Misc from another group of the same company.

4. Payer TIN.
5. Transmitter Control Code (TCC).
