This article accompanied the 2016 review of W-2 and 1099 preparation and filing systems.
Eagle View Filing Solutions, offered by Tenenz Inc., is an online filing service designed for small businesses, professional accountants, and even those that need to process a high number of year-end compliance forms suchas W-2s, and 1099s. Billed as a more economical and convenient process than the traditional method of filing and printing W-2 and 1099 forms in-house, Eagle View Filing offers quick, online system access, while also eliminating the need to purchase costly software, forms, envelopes and even postage. No matter the quantity of forms, customers can opt to enter data using the easily navigated user interface, or even better, simply upload data directly into the system, with Eagle View doing all of the work, from entering the data, to processing, printing, and mailing forms, as well as complete e-filing of the forms to the appropriate agency.
An Excel template is available for users to submit large quantities of data, or QuickBooks users can simply import data directly into Eagle View. Once data entry has been completed or information has been uploaded, users can select the filing option they wish to use; E-File and Delivery or E-File only. Customers can then choose the forms they wish to file, and have those forms both e-filed and delivered to recipients or choose to print forms in-house and use Eagle View to simply e-file. When this is complete, simply add those forms to the shopping cart, and pay. During tax season, electronic filing to the IRS and SSA is completed daily, with users receiving an email once their forms have been submitted by the agency. Customers also receive notification from Eagle View when a payment has been made and when recipient copies have been mailed.
Customers are not restricted by the number of filers or recipients, with Eagle View easily handling unlimited quantities of both. Filings for small businesses, as well as high-volume processing options are also available.
Eagle View offers numerous filing options, including complete e-file and form delivery of both original and correction forms, e-file only, with users handling the printing and mailing on their end, and e-delivery, with year-end forms such as W-2 and 1099 emailed to the recipient for downloading and printing. The system easily stores prior-years information for quick retrieval and processing for subsequent years.
Eagle View also integrates with several popular third-party accounting software applications including QuickBooks Online Plus, Xero Cloud Accounting, Icon CMO Online Software, and also integrates with QuickBooks Desktop with the use of a plug-in.
Federal filing to both the IRS and SSA is supported for common forms such as 1098, 1098, T, 1099 forms including 1099-B, 1099-C, 1099-DIV, 1099-INT, 1099-MISC, 1099-R, 1099-S, 1042-S, W-2, and ACA forms 1094-B, 1094-C, 1095-B and 1095-C. Combined Federal and State filing is also available for 1099 forms, and corrections can be filed as well.
Eagle View has also added some new features to the 2016 version of the product, including the addition of e-filing W-2s, and 1099s for most states, full ACA form filing compliance, and the introduction of more filing flexibility.
While high-processing firms will appreciate the ease of filing that Eagle View offers, it’s also convenient for smaller firms that don’t have the manpower, time, or resources to process small numbers of W-2s or 1099s. By the time software, forms, envelopes and postage is factored in, the cost of Eagle View becomes quite reasonable, and the convenience is unbeatable.
Eagle View pricing is flexible, with pricing starting at $3.95 per form for print, mail, and email processing for up to 10 forms. Pricing goes down significantly as volume goes up, with pricing at $1.25 per form for those processing over 1,000 forms. Other services available include 1042-S filing, which is $6.25 for 1,000 or more, and ACA forms which are $1.75 per form for 1,000 plus.
