Intuit sells to users of its QuickBooks and Online Payroll products kits containing preprinted 1099 and W-2 forms and matching envelopes. To print, you feed the forms into a laser printer or inkjet printer and follow the printing instructions in the software you use.
Businesses use Form W-2 to report employee salaries, wages and withholding amounts, and they use Form 1099 to report nonemployee compensation. Copies go to the Internal Revenue Service and the taxpayer. Extra copies are included so the taxpayer can attach them to federal, state and local returns, if necessary. The Intuit W-2 and 1099 kits are specifically designed for small businesses in quantities as low as 10 per kit. The forms are perforated and have two forms per sheet. To print the completed forms, load the blank preprinted 1099s or W-2s into your printer and open your Intuit QuickBooks or Online Payroll software. Select individual vendors or employees, or print the forms for an entire department or company. After you've made your selections, click the "Print" button for the desired type of form. Intuit also offers a 1099 eFile service that allows you to print, email and file electronic forms using data you import from QuickBooks.
