2020 is approaching very quickly. In the accounting and tax world, that is a big deal. For businesses, planning for the upcoming new year is essential and can help the bottom line. Here are some things you need to consider as the year-end approaches.
W-2s for 2019
If you process your own payroll, you will NOT need to purchase W-2 forms. The forms can be printed on plain paper. You may have received an email directly from Intuit about ordering forms, but it is not necessary to order pre-printed W-2 forms. Be sure that all four quarters of your 941 forms agree to your W-3 form, if you need assistance, please let us know.
1099s for 2019
If you print 1099s directly from QuickBooks, you will need to purchase the pre-printed IRS forms. Keep in mind; you need to prepare 1099 forms for sole proprietors and partnerships if the amount for services totals $600 or more. If you need assistance with the settings in QuickBooks (edit, preferences, tax/1099), please let us know.
It is recommended that all employers who use subcontractors have them submit a W-9 form to let you know if they are incorporated or not. You’ll want to keep these on file. Some of our clients do not issue payments to subcontractors until they receive the W-9 form.

The 2020 Annual UI Tax Rate Notices are now available on the Georgia Department of Labor (GDOL) website. If you have any questions, give us a call?
