Dec. 16, 2019
EG Systems, Inc,
From the 2019 reviews of W2 and 1099 Systems.
W-2/1099 Filer from EG Systems is well-suited for accounting professionals that file year-end compliance forms for multiple clients. W-2/1099 Filer is an on-premise application that can be installed on a desktop, workstation, or network computer. The product offers an easily navigated user interface that provides access to all system functions.
A handy feature in W-2/1099 Filer is the ability to choose from a variety of data entry options, with interactive, classic, and quick-entry options available. The application includes all electronic tax filing and magnetic media filing at no additional cost, and a Bulk TIN matching feature is available in the application as well. The application can also import data using Microsoft Excel and uses a wizard to guide users through the import/export process.
New for 2019, W-2/1099 Filer now includes a dashboard manager that displays each payor and their current status, along with a list of what has been printed or e-filed for each payor. Bulk TIN Matching has also been added to the application, though an e-services account is necessary in order to use the Bulk TIN Matching feature.
W-2/1099 allows users to carry forward any prior year totals and the product includes good password protection. The application is designed to print on pre-printed forms, but EG Systems offers an optional Laser Engine module for printing on blank paper. Users can also print directly to a PDF or save forms as a PDF that can later be mailed to clients for printing.
The forms supported by W-2/1099 include: W2, W2C and W2G, W3, W3C and 1096 Transmittals, 1099 MISC, 1099 DIV, 1099 INT, 1099R, 1099S, 1099A, 1099B, 1099C, 1099 CAP, 1099 OID, 1099 PATR, 1099G, 3921, 1099K, 1098, 1098T, 1098E and 1098C, 1042S, 1095-C, 1095-B and 1094C / 1094-B, 5498 and Form 940, 941 and 943. The product supports electronic filing for all federal and state forms, with a handy link of all electronic filings available for future reference.
In addition to the W-2/Forms Filer application, EG Systems also offers various add-on modules including the Laser Engine, mentioned earlier, along with a QuickBooks Import module, a Universal Import module, and an optional ACA module.
