When can I start filing forms?

You can start filing as soon as we release the current year's forms, typically November. You do not have to wait until January to file your forms.

How do I pay for forms I've submitted?

Simply enter your credit card information at checkout. We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express. The site offers real-time credit card processing.

Do you store my credit card information?

For increased security, eFile4Biz.com does not store your credit card information, nor do we make it accessible on the site for future orders.

What do I do if I can't remember my user name or password?

To reset your password, click the Forgot Password link on the log in screen and we’ll send you an email with a link to reset your password.

How long does it take for my recipients to receive their forms?

Recipient copies are mailed via first-class mail within 2-3 days of receiving your order.  The U.S. Postal Service typically delivers first-class mail within 3-4 days.  Although most recipient copies should be delivered within 5-7 days of the order date, we cannot guarantee postal delivery times.  In the meantime, you can print your completed forms any time by logging in and clicking on the “Filed Forms” tab.

We do, however, guarantee that all 1099, 1098, and W-2 forms submitted on or before 12 p.m. ET on Tuesday, January 31, 2017 will be postmarked by the January 31 IRS deadline.

All ACA forms submitted on or before 12 p.m. ET on Thursday, March 2, 2017 will be postmarked by the March 2 IRS deadline.

All 1042-S forms submitted on or before 12 p.m. on Wednesday, March 15, 2017 will be postmarked by the March 15 IRS deadline.

After March 2, forms are processed every Wednesday morning and postmarked within 3 business days of processing.

Can I get copies of forms after I file them?

Once your forms are submitted with payment, you can print or save your copies in PDF format. Simply log in to eFile4Biz.com, click on "Filing Center" in the top navigation bar and select "Filed Forms." Use the filters to indicate the form type and then click "Apply." Once your recipient information appears on screen, select the appropriate recipients and click the "Copy" button for the particular form you want to print.

Do I need to mail printed forms to the recipients?

No. Our all-inclusive service includes printing and delivery via first-class mail. We also offer e-Delivery, which lets recipients access their forms instantly online instead of waiting for mailed copies. Simply provide the recipient's email address and we will notify the recipient of this option.

When does eFile4Biz.com file my forms with the IRS/SSA?

eFile4Biz.com will start e-filing 1099, 1098 and W-2 forms with the IRS/SSA on January 17, 2017 for the 2016 tax season.  We will file daily (possibly multiple times per day during busy days) thru January 31, 2017.  To accommodate filings submitted after the January 31 e-file deadline, we continue to process orders weekly every Wednesday morning until November 1.

All ACA forms filed by 3 p.m. ET on March 31, 2017 are guaranteed to meet the IRS e-file deadline.

All 1042-S forms filed by 3 p.m. ET on March 15, 2017 are guaranteed to meet the IRS e-file deadline.

Does eFile4Biz.com participate in the Combined Federal/State Filing Program (CFSFP)?

Yes! We automatically file Form 1099-MISC, 1099-DIV, 1099-INT, 1099-B and 1099-R under the Combined Federal/State Filing Program. This program can save you the extra step of filing separately in these participating states

Does eFile4Biz fulfil Direct-to-State filings?

Direct-to-State filing allows customers to file their 1099-MISC and W-2 forms with states that do not participate in the Combined Federal/State Program. We currently support Direct-to-State filings for the following forms in certain states:

  • 1099-MISC: Oklahoma, Oregon and Rhode Island
  • W-2: Georgia, Illinois and Michigan

How much does Direct-to-State filing cost?

We offer this service as an add-on charge of $1.00 per form, regardless of the number of states being filed in one form. Example: if you file a W-2 that has all 4 states populated, your Direct-to-State add-on charge for that form is $1.00. If you file only 1 state on that form, your charge is still $1.00 in addition to the filing fee per form.

When I file with eFile4Biz.com, do you file my forms with the state and city, too?

We automatically file form types 1099-DIV, 1099-INT, 1099-MISC and 1099-R in the IRS' Combined Federal/State Filing Program, which makes the form data available to the 31 states that participate in the program. We do not e-file or mail city or local copies for you. To comply with non-participating states, or city and local requirements, you may need to print a copy of your forms and mail them to these agencies.

Not all states participate in this program, including tax-free states such as Nevada, Florida, Washington and Wyoming. If you have questions regarding state filings, we suggest that you talk with your accountant or attorney for clarification.

Can I file for more than one business or client using a single account?

Yes. You can add an unlimited number of payers and recipients under a single account. When filing a form, simply select the payer and recipient from the drop-down boxes on the form. All contact information will be filled in automatically.

I discovered an error on a previously filed form. How do I correct it?

You can change any information entered into a form as long as you have not checked out and paid for our service. Once you make a payment you will not be able to make changes to the existing form.

Filing a correction form:
If you discover any error after you have paid for the forms you must file a separate correction form. Corrected forms must be submitted to the IRS and a corrected recipient copy must be provided to the recipient as soon as possible.

Can I correct data on a form that has already been printed and mailed?

No, you cannot change any information entered into a form once you have checked out and paid for our service.

What is most important is that the IRS receives accurate information, so we encourage all customers to correct data in their forms as their own recipients report errors, prior to checking them out and submitting payment. As part of our online filing service, we electronically submit your filings as they are checked out and paid for on our website.

Can I file corrections on Direct-to-State filings?

No, we do not support corrections for state data, only Federal corrections.

However, if you haven't checked out with your forms yet, you can still go back and edit your state data. Once you have checked out those forms, you can only edit state data if we haven't filed your forms with the state yet. Please refer to the 'Filed on' date on your Filed Forms page.

Can I file reconciliation forms for Direct-to-State filings?

No, reconciliation forms are not available on our site at the moment.

Some states require additional forms to be filed, such as the Form W-R with the State of Oregon. To remain in compliance with your state's regulations, those types of forms need to be filed separately.

Once I file my forms on eFile4Biz.com, do I need to file Form 1096 or W-3?

No! As part of our e-file process, we compile the summary data required on Form 1096 or W-3 and transmit it along with your forms.

Once I file my ACA forms (1095-B or 1095-C) on eFile4Biz.com, do I need to file Form 1094-B or 1094-C?

If Filing ACA Form 1095-B, you do not need to file Form 1094-B. As part of our e-file process, we compile the summary data required on Form 1094-B and transmit it along with your 1095-B forms.

If filing ACA Form 1095-C, you MUST file form 1094-C. eFile4biz.com does not automatically compile the summary data required on this form.

How safe is the data I enter on your website?

Your data is encrypted using the strongest encryption program available, recommended by the federal government. We use the information you provide only for the purpose of processing your forms. We do not sell or share your information with anyone unless required by law, even if you no longer use our services. Please refer to our Privacy Policy and rest assured that your data is in good hands.
