This is a hectic period for tax preparers, and anything that saves them time is going to make their burden lighter
Boca Raton, Florida (PRWEB) December 15, 2015
Just in time for tax season, LaserSubstrates, Inc. has introduced convenient tax form self-mailers designed to make life easier for both preparers and taxpayers. Compatible with standard home and office laser or inkjet printers, these patented, Internal Revenue Service (IRS)-compliant forms allow users to print federal and state tax forms seamlessly from any Windows-based accounting or tax preparer’s software. Thanks to the self-mailer format, these documents can go directly from the printer to the mailbox; no envelope required.
“This is a hectic period for tax preparers, and anything that saves them time is going to make their burden lighter,” says Mark Nelson, Director of Operations at LaserSubstrates. “Currently, firms that wish to use pressure-seal tax forms must invest in costly folder-sealer equipment. The alternative is printing on standard tax forms and stuffing them into envelopes, which is a tedious process that can also lead to risky tax form mix-ups. Our tax form self-mailers bring an unprecedented level of efficiency to the process. There’s nothing like them on the market today.”
Tax form self-mailers work in conjunction with LaserSubstrates’ downloadable, user-friendly TransForm Tax software, which extracts data from user’s accounting software and reformats it. LaserSubstrates produces all major tax forms in self-mailer format, including W2, W3, 1099, 1096, 8879, and 1040 ES/V. The 8879 form is also available with a return envelope. Individual taxpayers can print the 1040 ES or 1040 V as a Certified Mail piece with an optional payment check, signature, and even postage — all in one pass through their home printer.
The Following are additional benefits of using tax form self-mailers:
§ Since the forms are blank, they do not become obsolete from tax year to tax year. Instead, the TransForm Tax software is updated annually to reflect the current year’s updates.
§ Forms are available in quantities as few as 10, so there is no need to purchase a large stock of pre-printed forms, many of which go unused and discarded at the end of each tax season.
§ W2 and 1099 forms feature a special 2D barcode that eliminates time consuming re-keying of data. Accountants preparing taxes can scan the barcode with a hand scanner or cell phone and have it automatically populated in their software, saving hours of time.
LaserSubstrates’ tax form self-mailers are ideal for accounting firms that serve small businesses as well as freelancers and sole proprietors. Says Nelson, “Tax season is stressful enough, and we’re thrilled to be able to help busy preparers by removing some of the steps associated with the reporting process.”
The TransForm software is available free to individual taxpayers; tax preparers may be charged a nominal fee depending on the volume of their form order. Those interested in downloading the software and ordering forms should visit http://www.tax-form-self-mailers.com or call (800) 538-4900.
