Major E-File Requirement Changes for 1099 & W2 Filing
The new e-file threshold for the 2023 tax year is only 10 W2 and 1099 forms, combined, per EIN.
For example, if your business has to file 5 1099NEC forms and 5 W2 forms, you must e-file the red Copy A forms with the IRS and SSA by January 31, 2024.
This applies to ANY combination of 10 or more of ANY type of 1099 or W2 forms, except correction forms. Here is a great article with insights to the changes.
Penalties apply if you don't - $60 per form if you file on time and up to $310 per form if you file late.
