New Features for Tax Year 2017
1099 Series Information Reporting Support – BoomTax now offers support for reporting 1099-MISC, 1099-INT and 1099-DIV information to the IRS using our same user-friendly interface to make the process quick and simple.
Combined Federal and State Filing (CS/SF) Support – For states that require 1099 information reporting and are participants of the Combined Federal and State Filing program, BoomTax allows you to submit your 1099-MISC, 1099-INT and 1099-DIV forms to the IRS and responsible state tax agency simultaneously. Learn more about the CS/SF program here.
Payer TIN Verification – When setting up your Payer information, the taxpayer identification number will automatically be verified to ensure that the information matches with what the IRS has on file. This will help to prevent misinformation or simple mistakes from requiring a corrected filing.
Easier Billing Process – BoomTax now allows you to safely and securely save your payment information for future purchases. With this feature, you will not have to enter your information line-by-line each time you make a payment.
