Electronic Reporting (eFile)
EFile 1098, 1099, 3921, 3922, 5498, W2G, W2 and W2C returns for free with Account Ability
 Account Ability Includes Electronic Filing (eFile) at No Extra Charge!

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and Social Security Administration (SSA) require filers of 250 or more returns to file electronically. Many software vendors require that you purchase additional modules designed for this purpose. Online wage reporting sites and service bureaus can charge quite a hefty price for this service as well. Account Ability creates transmittal files that comply with IRS Pub. 1220, SSA EFW2 (formerly MMREF-1) and SSA EFW2C (formerly MMREF-2).

Account Ability's Electronic Reporting Options

Account Ability Creates the Transmittal Files — The Electronic Reporting Options dialog, shown above, interfaces with each file of Information Returns (1098, 1099, 3921, 3922, 5498, W2G) and Annual Wage Reports (W2, W2C). Information Returns are reported in file specification IRSTAX; Annual Wage Reports are reported in file specification W2REPORT.

A Single Transmittal File Can Contain Multiple Filers — Transmittal files are created within the destination folder you specify. If a transmittal already exists, Account Ability displays it, as shown below.

A single transmittal file can contain multiple filers

Transmittal files, which are appended at your option, are ultimately uploaded to IRS FIRE, SSA Business Services Online (SSA BSO), or Account Ability's EFILE Service.

Electronic Filing - IRS FIRE — IRS FIRE is a free online reporting site for filers of Information Returns that you can access from Account Ability's Module menu. Once connected, a simple menu system guides you through the uploading of your IRSTAX transmittal.

Combined Federal/State Filing Program — The IRS/IRB will forward information to participating states free of charge for approved filers. Separate reports to participating states are not necessary. Although not all Information Returns can be filed under this program, Account Ability automatically creates the appropriate reporting records for each approved filer. For more information, contact IRS at 304-263-8700 or see the Combined Fed/State Filing topic on our FAQ page.

Electronic Filing - SSA BSO — SSA BSO is a free online reporting site for filers of Annual Wage Reports that you can access from Account Ability's Module menu. Once connected, a simple menu system guides you through the uploading of your W2REPORT transmittal.

Account Ability's Electronic Filing Service (eFile) — Account Ability's eFile Service (EFILE) is an optional outsourcing service for users of Account Ability who would rather IDMS carry out the tasks related to registering, uploading, and verifying their electronic transmittal files. EFILE accepts both IRSTAX and W2REPORT transmittals. Each transmittal submitted to EFILE is encrypted and password protected for your protection. For pricing information, see the Order link on the menu.
