Chicago, IL (PRWEB) December 23, 2013
2013 / 2014 1099 MISC software by Real Business Solutions (RealTaxTools.com / 1-800-507-1992) has been updated to include the ability to mask recipient (contractor or vendor) social security numbers on forms 1099-MISC. The new feature helps protect the security and identity of 1099-MISC recipients. Business filers and tax professionals can download the new software by pointing their browser to http://www.realtaxtools.com/1099-misc-software.html .
Proposed IRS regulations (REG-148873-09) permit filers of 1099 tax returns to truncate a recipient’s identification number (social security number (SSN), individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN), or adoption taxpayer identification number (ATIN)) on payee statements. Filers may truncate a payee's identification number on the payee statement (including substitute and composite substitute statements) sent to the payee in paper form or electronically.
The 1099 processing software by RealTaxTools.com helps companies apply tax ID truncation regulations and protect themselves from the liability of sending out 1099 forms that expose the recipient's SSN. Using this feature helps prevent identity theft and fraud. The software truncates the SSN by replacing the first 5 digits of the 9-digit number with asterisks (*) or Xs (for example, an SSN 111-11-1234 would appear on the paper payee statement as ***-**-1234 or XXX-XX-1234).
According to 2013 IRS regulations, penalties may be assessed for failure to file correct information returns (1099, 1098 and other similar tax forms) by the due date, without reasonable cause. This includes Form 1099-MISC. The penalty may also apply if the filer shows incomplete or incorrect information, or files on paper when required to file electronically.
