Forms

1099-MISC
Primarily used to report what clients have paid independent contractors or miscellaneous laborers. It could also be used for rents and royalties. This form is not used for employees. It's used mostly for contractors to do a particular job. Intuit Quick Employer Forms Accountant helps you create the 1099-MISC for each contractor paid, plus we'll e-File the return to the IRS and provide a PDF for your records. A 1096 is not needed when you e-File the 1099-MISC.

W-2
Used to report an employee's pay and how much tax has been withheld. Intuit Quick Employer Forms Accountant e-Files them with the Social Security Administration. A W-3 is not needed when you e-File the W-2.

1099-INT
The 1099-INT is used to report interest income paid to an individual or business. Intuit Quick Employer Forms Accountant will guide you in preparing the form and submitting the required copy to the recipient and we will e-File them to the IRS.

1099-DIV
The 1099-DIV is used to report distributions paid, including dividends or capital gains paid on stock and liquidation distributions. The form needs to be prepared and submitted to the distribution recipient and to the IRS. You can easily and quickly prepare and e-File this form using Intuit Quick Employer Forms Accountant.
