This article appeared as a sidebar to the October 2009 Review of W-2/1099 Compliance Systems.
Through its Tax-Aid and HG Forms product lines, Tenenz is best known as a forms and accounting supplies company, having provided a full range of each for more than 40 years. But in addition to offering W-2 and 1099 forms, envelopes, binders, presentation materials and other gear, Tenenz also sells software for W-2 and 1099 preparation.
The TFP 20.9 system is geared toward printing these forms on pre-printed form stock that is available for either laser or continuous paper printers. The program automatically produces W-3 and 1096 transmittal summaries, and provides a simple user interface that eases manual data-entry tasks. Designed for small businesses or professionals who just need a simple W-2 and 1099 template-based system, TFP helps solve these basic needs at a very affordable price of $29.99 per year.
Tenenz also offers the Laser Link system, which provides similar basic W-2 and 1099-Misc functionality as TFP, but with the ability to print to plain paper stock using a laser printer. The program costs $46.99 per year. Both Tenenz products can be purchased and fully downloaded from the company’s website. All of the vendor’s supplies and forms are also available online, often at discounts of up to 30 percent.
