Alerts and notices

This article contains information about forms available from Forms CS that can be used for printing Forms W-2, W-3, 1094-C, 1095-C, 1096, and 1099. You can save your firm time and money by ordering the correct forms, in an appropriate quantity, from Forms CS.

The forms in Accounting CS are aligned for use with the various form stock available from Forms CS. We can't guarantee perfect alignment to other vendors' forms or to government preprinted forms.

Submitting forms electronically

Before you order forms, keep in mind that you can use Accounting CS to produce files that can be submitted electronically, rather than printing paper copies, for Federal Copy A (and the accompanying W-3 / 1096 form) and the Agency Copy of Form 1095-C (and the accompanying 1094-C form).

Electronic delivery via Employee Self-Service

Secure electronic delivery of W-2, 1099-MISC, and 1095-C forms to employees or independent contractors is available through integration with Employee Self-Service. To find out more about this option, please contact CS Sales or see the Employee Self-Service overview.

Using the W-2 or 1099 ordering worksheet

When you do need to print paper copies, the W-2 and 1099 Ordering Worksheet reports in Accounting CS help you to calculate the minimum number of sheets that you need to order to print W-2 and 1099 forms for your clients. To print the reports, follow the instructions provided in the  W-2 and 1099 Ordering Worksheet reports article.

After you print the Ordering Worksheets, you can click the Order Forms link in the Forms Selection section of the Actions > Process Payroll Tax Forms screen to quickly access the Forms CS website and order the forms.
