Don't be Late: State W2 & 1099 eFile Deadlines

It’s that time of the year again! CMS wants to help take the mystery out of what needs to meet which deadline. It is important to notice that there may be different deadlines for paper filing and electronic filing.

We encourage everyone to file all forms electronically, in fact, in many cases it may be mandated. Aatrix is the recommended service for electronic filing through Sage.

State deadlines vary by state. Check with your state agency for their due date, as the submission should be received by the e-file Center three business days prior to that date.

As always, we suggest that you carve out time within your day to dedicate to getting this task completed. You don’t want to wait until the last minute. By planning ahead, you can help to avoid delays, mistakes, and aggravation. Success comes to those who prepare well and put in the effort.
