Our E-File software can help you eliminate the cost of expensive 1099 and W-2 forms. You’ll save time, material, and money without having to load special forms into your printer. Our E-File software options can accommodate your business, regardless of your e-filing needs. We provide two separate options: E-File Direct and E-File Services. While both provide a similar service, they tackle e-filing payment and process in different ways. We’ve detailed each option below.
The first E-File software, E-File Direct, is a payroll system with a flat fee and an unlimited number of forms that can be electronically filed. All you need to do is upload the data to the IRS/SSA websites using the IRS “FIRE” system or the SSA “BSO”/”ACCUWAGE” system. This powerful tool produces the files required for filing 1099 and W-2 forms with the IRS and SSA in a convenient electronic format. The software has a few additional features added for your convenience.
- Produces required W-2 and 1099 files for the IRS/SSA
- Creates files in the program’s directory
- Can verify, view, and print files
- Creates state W-2 files for all states that require electronic filing

E-File Services is slightly different. This payroll software charges a fee per form, and those forms are filed electronically via a third-party vendor. Users can electronically file their W-2s and 1099s, but AMS works with a specialist provider whose state-of-the-art e-filing solution integrates seamlessly with 1099-Etc. With this program, there are different service levels available. Each is designed to allow the user the ability to customize their E-file Services for their own unique time and budget requirements.
- E-Filing Only to the IRS/SSA/States: Electronically files forms with the government. The user doesn’t have to submit paper forms to the government. The user is responsible only for mailing the recipient copies to the employees.
- Forms Mailed to the Recipient Only: Prints and mails recipient copies directly to the employees. The user is responsible for filing the information with the government.
- Both E-File and Recipient Mailing: Files forms with the government as well as prints and mails recipient copies directly to the employees. With this option, the user isn’t responsible for printing government or recipient forms, stuffing envelopes, or postage.

- Software Generated Forms supports Windows compatible printers (virtually all brands and models of laser printers). However, for faster printing, we have found that USB printers are faster than parallel printers.
- The W‑2 and W‑3 Copy A forms can also be printed on blank paper with virtually any Windows compatible printer and Software Generated Forms.
- AMS Payroll will export the data to the W-2/1099 Forms Filer with just a few simple clicks.
