Make the Leap to E-filing: The Ultimate Solution for Easier, More Efficient 1099, W-2 and ACA Filing

E Filing vs Paper Filing

In today’s increasingly digital world, it should come as no surprise that electronic tax filing is replacing old, manual processes. Businesses are no longer restricted to time-consuming and cumbersome paper or software-driven tax filing. Instead, they are turning to reputable, IRS-authorized e-file providers like to file online and save valuable time and money.

Why should your business make the switch to e-filing? Let’s take a closer look at how paper filing and software filing compare to today’s faster, more efficient e-filing:

Paper filing vs. E-filing

  1. Problem: The cost of a pack of forms (often 25 or more) when you only need a handful

    Solution: Whether you’re filing one form or thousands, you pay for only the exact number of 1099s, W-2 and ACA forms you file online

  2. Problem: The time it takes to complete multiple forms

    Solution: You can upload data all at once with our Excel templates, or import directly from QuickBooks, Xero and other options to save even more time

  3. Problem: The time involved to print and mail multiple forms

    Solution: As a turn-key service, efile4Biz takes care of printing and mailing forms to your recipients, as well as e-filing your forms directly with the IRS or SSA

  4. Problem: Having to fill out Form 1096 and/or W-3

    Solution: You can skip this step, because efile4Biz automatically calculates the totals and transmits the information electronically

  5. Problem: Security risks when mailing forms

    Solution: efile4Biz prints and mails forms from a SOC-certified and HIPAA-compliant facility for maximum data security

  6. Problem: Potential for mistakes and lost forms

    Solution: A previously complicated process is made easy with efile4Biz, as corrections can be filed online and lost forms reprinted

  7. Problem: Additional recordkeeping responsibilities

    Solution: Recordkeeping is consolidated with efile4Biz since there’s no need to save and print copies for offline storage; plus, you have full access to your filed forms for at least four years

  8. Problem: Environmental wastage with paper

    Solution: Digital files and transmission reduce wasted paper and ink.

Software filing vs. E-filing

  1. Problem: Cost of software

    Solution: Creating an account on efile4Biz is free – you don’t pay until you submit forms for processing

  2. Problem: Taking the time to download or install software on your computer or network

    Solution: Everything functions online, “in the cloud” with efile4Biz, so you don’t have to involve IT staff or risk technical glitches on your end

  3. Problem: Keeping up with software upgrades

    Solution: When efile4Biz updates forms or adds new features, it makes the changes automatically on the website, which means you never have to pay for a software upgrade – just the services you use

  4. Problem: Printer mishaps with forms

    Solution: Avoid misalignment issues, paper jams and wasted forms with efile4Biz, which populates your data in the necessary online forms
