 Account Ability Includes Electronic Reporting (E-File)

Beginning 2024, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and Social Security Administration (SSA) require filers of 10 or more returns to file electronically (E-File). Account Ability, an IRS Form 1099 and SSA W-2 software provider, creates transmittals compliant with IRS Pub. 1220, SSA EFW2, SSA EFW2C, and Affordable Care Act (ACA) 1095-B, 1094-C, 1095-C Pubs. 5164, 5165, 5258.

1099 and W-2 Electronic Reporting Options

Account Ability Creates the Transmittal Files — The Electronic Reporting Options dialog, shown above, interfaces with each file of Information Returns (1098, 1099, 3921, 3922, 5498, W-2G) and Annual Wage Reports (W-2, W-2C). Information Returns are reported in file specification IRSTAX; Annual Wage Reports are reported in file specification W2REPORT.

Combined Federal/State Filing Program — The IRS will forward Information Returns to participating states free of charge for approved filers. Separate reports to participating states are not necessary. Although not all Information Returns can be filed under this program, Account Ability automatically creates the appropriate reporting records for each approved filer. For more information, contact IRS at 304-263-8700 or see the Combined Fed/State Filing topic on our FAQ page.

A Single Transmittal File Can Contain Multiple Filers — Transmittal files are created within the destination folder you specify. If a transmittal already exists, Account Ability displays it, as shown below.

A single transmittal file can contain multiple filers

Transmittal files, which can be appended at your option, are ultimately uploaded to IRS FIRE, SSA Business Services Online (SSA BSO), or Account Ability's optional E-File Service.

Account Ability Creates 1094/1095 ACA Transmittals — The XML Output Options dialog, shown below, interfaces with each file of Information Returns (1094-B, 1095-B, 1094-C, 1095-C). Transmittal files are ultimately manifested prior to uploading to the Affordable Care Act Information Returns (AIR) Program.

ACA 1095-B, 1095-C Reporting Options

The Manifest Management and Testing dialog, shown below, manages all of your client's 1094/1095 submissions from a central window. This dialog provides a complete audit of each transmittal from manifesting to submission to completion.

Account Ability's Electronic Filing Service — Account Ability's E-File Service (EFILE) is an optional outsourcing service for users of Account Ability who would rather IDMS carry out the tasks related to registering, uploading, and verifying their electronic transmittal files. EFILE accepts both IRSTAX and W2REPORT transmittals. Each transmittal submitted to EFILE is encrypted and password protected for your protection. For pricing information, see the Order link on the menu.
