Why There's Nothing to Fear (and Everything to Gain) with E-filing

Why There’s Nothing to Fear (and Everything to Gain) with E-filing

For years now, you’ve handled your annual 1099 and W-2 reporting the same, old way – manually via paper forms or with software. You’re aware of e-filing, but you have your reservations. E-filing isn’t for everyone, you say.

Every business owner’s perspective is different, but the reasons for resistance tend to fall under a few key areas. And once you break down those concerns, you quickly realize that e-filing IS for everyone – including you!

5 Common Excuses for Not Switching Your Business to E-Filing

  1. “I don’t like change; besides, it takes too long to learn something new.”

    First, it’s important to realize that e-filing is an efficient, time-tested service that’s here to stay. Like many processes that have been replaced by quicker, more convenient electronic options, e-filing lets you do everything online “in the cloud.” Simply create your account and enter your tax form data. We take care of printing and mailing the forms to your recipients, as well as e-filing your forms directly with the IRS or SSA.

  2. “I only have a handful of filings, so why bother?”

    Whether you’re filing one form or thousands, filing online eliminates steps, which saves you precious time. The less time you spend filing forms; the more time you can spend on other priorities. Also, even though e-filing is optional for businesses with fewer than 250 filings in a year, this is likely to change in the future. Why not get ahead of the curve and adopt e-filing now?

  3. “I’m already using a previous version of the software.”

    Even with the best software packages, you still do most of the work. Instead, send us your data and let us handle the technical details of processing, printing, mailing and filing. You’ll never have to purchase a software upgrade – or stock the forms and envelopes required for printing and mailing. Our simple, end-to-end, cloud-based tax filing service eliminates all of that!

  4. “It will take too much time upfront to make the switch.”

    Our easy-to-use interface will have you filing your tax information forms in just minutes. After the initial setup, enter your data, upload it with our Excel template or for the ultimate convenience, take advantage of software you already use to run your business – such as QuickBooks Online Plus and Xero – for quick import.

  5. "I don’t trust filing in the cloud."

    Data security is critically important to us. All data you enter on efile4Biz is encrypted under strict IRS guidelines and printed from our high-security, SOC-certified and HIPAA-compliant print and mail facility. You can be confident your sensitive data is guarded through the latest, most stringent business practices.
