Help and FAQ's

General Help & FAQs

Can I upload data or do I have to enter it?

With our service you can do both. You can upload filers, recipients and forms using our simple upload process. We accept comma-delimited or Excel files, and files from certain softwares like QuickBooks online, and Xero. Quickbooks Desktop may need a Plug-In for uploading data.

*only 1099 Misc forms can be uploaded via QuickBooks plug-in.

Can I use your service to eFile only and then print and mail my own forms?

Yes, you can. When you file forms with Eagle View you have the option to "eFile/Print/Mail" or "eFile Only". You make this choice at the time that you pay for your forms. After you've paid for your filings, you can download individual copies of your forms in PDF format. We provide all Copies in this manner except for "Copy A".

How will I know my account is set up properly and my filings are submitted

End-of-year tax reporting is a time-sensitive process so we like to keep our customers updated every step of the way. We send email notifications for:

  • Confirmation of account set up
  • When payment is made
  • When the IRS and/or SSA accepts filings
  • When recipient copies have mailed
  • Clients are notified when filing occurs and when the IRS and/or SSA accepts if an email address was provided

When I file 1099's with Eagle View Filing, do you send any information to the States

We automatically file form types 1099-B, 1099-DIV, 1099-INT, 1099-MISC, 1099-NEC and 1099-R in the IRS' Combined Federal State Filing Program whereby the IRS makes available the form information to Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and Wisconsin as detailed in IRS Publication 1220.

Not all states participate in this program such as tax free states like Nevada, Florida, Washington and Wyoming. If you have questions regarding state filings we suggest that you talk with your Accountant or Attorney for further clarification. Although the IRS makes the state information available, it is your responsibility to make sure the states receive the appropriate information.

*Iowa withdrew from participation in 2014.
*District of Columbia and Utah withdrew from participation in 2015.
*Virginia withdrew from participation in 2017.
*Vermont withdrew in 2018.

When I file W-2's with Eagle View Filing, do you send any information to the States?

Our service for Form W-2 consists of filing with the SSA only. Forms W-2 filed with our site WILL NOT be filed directly with any states. If you need to file with any states, then you will need to file them separately. You can print state copies from your Filed Forms page under the Print Forms button at the bottom.

We now offer direct to state filing on W-2s for DE, MI, IL and GA only.

Can I cancel my order at any time? If so, will that stop my forms from being eFiled?

You can cancel an order up until such time that we submit one-or-more of the forms in your order to the IRS/SSA. Cancelling an order only means that we will cease processing from that point in time. If the forms have already been printed/mailed then your recipients will still receive their forms. Likewise, once we initiate the electronic transfer of your forms to the IRS/SSA, cancelling your order will not prevent the data from getting transferred. Due to the speed and automated nature of our service, we encourage you to thoroughly review your data before placing an order.

When does Eagle View Filing Solutions transmit my forms to the IRS/SSA?

We start e-filing with the IRS/SSA as soon as the IRS opens the FIRE (File Information Returns Electronically) site, which occurs in mid to late January. This is the earliest the IRS will accept forms. We will file daily (possibly multiple times per day during busy days) through the first week of April, 2021. To accommodate filings submitted after the first week of April deadline, we continue to process orders weekly every Wednesday morning through the end of the year.

We do, however, guarantee that all 1099, 1098, and W-2 forms submitted on or before 12 p.m. (noon) ET on Thursday, January 31, 2020 will be postmarked and e-filed by the January 31 deadline.

All ACA forms filed by 12 p.m. (noon) ET on Thursday, March 31, 2020 are guaranteed to be postmarked and e-filed by the March 31 deadline.

All Forms W-2, and 1099-NEC must be e-filed before February1st, 2021 since January 31st falls on a weekend.

All other 1098 and 1099 forms must be filed on our site no later than 8:00PM EST (Eastern Standard Time) March 31, 2021 in order to guarantee e-filing to the IRS/SSA deadline of March 31, 2021 for the 2020 tax year.

All 1042-S forms must be filed on our site no later than 8:00PM EST (Eastern Standard Time) March 15, 2021 in order to guarantee e-filing to the IRS to meet the deadline of March 15, 2021 for the 2020 Tax Year.

How often does Eagleview transmit forms to IRS/SSA?

We e-file forms to the IRS/SSA on a daily basis. You can check the status of your forms by logging in to your account and reviewing the Season Summary on the Account Dashboard or going to the Filed Forms page. You will also receive an email when the IRS/SSA accepts your forms.

What are the penalties for late filing

Penalties Increased For:

  • Failure to file correct Forms W-2 by due date
  • Intentional disregard of filing requirements
  • Failure to furnish Forms W-2
  • Intentional disregard of payee statement delivery requirements

Amount of penalty is based on when the correct form is filed.

I have filed with Eagle View Filing but I've discovered that the information I had entered was incorrect. How do I correct my data?

If you notice your error early (after submitting it but before we have e-filed your forms with the IRS/SSA) then you can make necessary edits for a small fee. To check if your form is still available to edit just look for an "Edit Data" link in the Correct Errors column on the Filed Forms page. Being quick to make changes will save you from having to file a correction form altogether.

If you find that the option to EDIT/SAVE a form that you have already paid for is no longer present, this means we have already submitted your data and it can no longer be changed on our site and you will have to file a correction form. If you need to make Type 1/dollar amount correction then that can be done in a few easy steps. Start by pulling up the original form in your online Eagle View account. Next make the correction and resubmit-- Eagle View will take care of the rest.

We print and mail a corrected form to the recipient. (Or if you provide the recipient's email address, we can offer the recipient the option to download the form immediately for faster delivery.) Then, of course, we file the 1099 or W-2 Correction with the IRS/SSA on your behalf.

For your convenience, we support corrections for the following forms:

  • 1099-MISC
  • 1099-NEC
  • W-2
  • 1099-INT
  • 1099-S
  • 1099-DIV

If the correction you need to make is more serious then you will need to obtain a Red Copy A and 1096, for 1099's, then fill them out, and then mail them to the IRS. If filing form W-2, you will need to get a W-2C and W-3C then send them to the SSA. The W-2C and W-3C forms can be in black ink so you may print out the forms from the SSA website

Can I correct data in a form that has already been printed and mailed?

Yes, until the end of March or until such time that your data is submitted to the IRS/SSA. We encourage all customers to correct data in their forms as their own recipients report errors. What is most important is that the IRS receive accurate information. As part of our online filing service, we electronically submit your filings to the IRS/SSA prior to the end of March. As such, you have until the time that forms are electronically submitted to correct any mistakes in the information you have submitted. Select Order History, then select an order, then click Edit next to the form you want to correct.

When can I start filing forms?

You can start filing as soon as we release the current year's forms, typically in late November or early December. You do not have to wait until January to file your forms.

How long does it take for my recipients to receive their forms?

Recipient copies are mailed via first-class mail within 2-3 days of receiving your order. The U.S. Postal Service typically delivers first-class mail within 3-4 days. Although most recipient copies should be delivered within 5-7 days of the order date, we cannot guarantee postal delivery times. In the meantime, you can print your completed forms any time by logging in and clicking on the "Filed Forms" tab.

We do, however, guarantee that all 1099, 1098, and W-2 forms submitted on or before 12 p.m. (noon) ET on Monday, February 1, 2021 will be postmarked and e-filed by the February 1 IRS deadline.

Can I get copies of forms after I file them?

Once your forms are submitted with payment, you can print or save your copies in PDF format. Simply log in to your Eagle View account, click on "Filing Center" in the top navigation bar and select "Filed Forms." Use the filters to indicate the form type and then click "Apply." Once your recipient information appears on screen, select the appropriate recipients and click the "Copy" button for the particular form you want to print.

I discovered an error on a previously filed form. How do I correct it?

You can change any information entered into a form as long as you have not checked out and paid for our service. Once you make a payment you will not be able to make changes to the existing form.

Filing a correction form:
If you discover any error after you have paid for the forms you must file a separate correction form. Corrected forms must be submitted to the IRS and a corrected recipient copy must be provided to the recipient as soon as possible.

How safe is the data I enter on your website?

Your data is encrypted using the strongest encryption program available, recommended by the federal government. We use the information you provide only for the purpose of processing your forms. We do not sell or share your information with anyone unless required by law, even if you no longer use our services. Please refer to our Privacy Policy and rest assured that your data is in good hands.

When to File a 1099 Form

The 1099 form is a tax form used to report a supplier or vendor's income (your expense) to the Internal Revenue Service. However, it is up to the entity who is paying out the monies to submit this form. It is used specifically to report financial activity from different sources -- specifically, sources other than a wage-paying job. Often people have income--a little bit here and there or a big chunk all at once--and they wonder whether the entity paying them is going to file a 1099 form.

Businesses need to know when this form should be used. Top Line: The IRS wants to know who you paid for services and supplies. They will then use this reporting to ensure your supplier correctly reports the income.

Some common situations that would require you to file a 1099 form are:

  • Reporting your business expenses for each of your qualified suppliers
  • Dividends paid by your business as an investment
  • Proceeds from the sale of real estate
  • A death benefit paid to a spouse or a family
  • Fees paid by you for contract work or freelance work (if the amount paid is under $600, the 1099 is not required)

There are also some lesser-known instances in which a 1099 form should be used. Unfortunately--ignorance is no excuse when it comes to the IRS. It is up to each business owner or individual to know the laws and guidelines of all tax reporting. The IRS website ( provides a library of articles to help you learn about tax laws and requirements, and stay abreast of changes.

Here are additional situations that require submission of a 1099 form. As you can see they each have their own unique extension:

  • 1099-A: Acquisition or Abandonment of Secured Property
  • 1099-B: Proceeds from Broker and Barter Exchange Transactions
  • 1099-C: Cancellation of Debt
  • 1099-MISC: Miscellaneous Income
  • 1099-OID: Original Issue Discount
  • 1099-CAP: Changes in Corporate Control and Capital Structure
  • 1099-DIV: Dividends and Distributions
  • 1099-G: Government Payments
  • 1099-H: Health Insurance Advance Payments
  • 1099-INT: Interest Income
  • 1099-LTC: Long Term Care Benefits
  • 1099-PATR: Taxable Distributions Received From Cooperatives
  • 1099-Q: Payment from Qualified Education Programs
  • 1099-R: Distributions from Pensions, Annuities, Retirement Plans, IRAs, or Insurance Contracts
  • SSA-1099: Social Security Benefit Statement
  • SSA-1042S: Social Security Benefit Statement to Nonresident Aliens
  • 1099-S: Proceeds from Real Estate Transactions
  • 1099-SA: Distributions From an HSA, Archer MSA, or Medicare Advantage MSA
  • 1042-S: Foreign Person's U.S. Source Income
  • RRB-1099: Payments by the Railroad Retirement Board
  • RRB-1099R: Pension and Annuity Income by the Railroad Retirement Board
  • RRB-1042S: Payments by the Railroad Retirement Board to Nonresident Aliens
  • W-2G: Certain Gambling Winnings

See: document i1099_13 for more details

When you submit a 1099 to the IRS, the person who received the income must be mailed a copy. The 1099 forms that your business supplies to the IRS are also used by your contractors--your freelancers--to complete their tax returns. With all the different reasons why you would need to submit a 1099, it can be a daunting task. This is why the Eagle View Filing Solutions website was created--to make the filing of one or 100 tax forms a faster, more simple process. After years of doing nothing but electronic filing for taxpayers, the Eagle View Filing team has honed the process to the leanest and meanest that it's ever been.

Tax Law Change - 1099 MISC Form

Businesses (employers) use the 1099 MISC form when paying freelance workers or contractors (such as a consultant). The 1099 MISC forms are used only when you are in a trade or business. They are not for reporting personal payments. Note that non-profit organizations are considered to be "in business" and thus are subject to using this form. Beginning in 2011, there has been a change to the use of the 1099-MISC form. You now must file a 1099 Miscellaneous income form for each individual or entity that you have paid any of the following items to during the year:

  • At least $10 in royalties or broker payments in lieu of dividends or tax-exempt interest;

  • At least $600 in rents, services (including parts and materials), prizes and awards, other income payments, medical and health care payments, crop insurance proceeds, cash payments for fish (or other aquatic life) you purchase from anyone engaged in the trade or business of catching fish, or, generally, the cash paid from a national principal contract to an individual, partnership, or estate;

  • Any fishing boat proceeds; or

  • Gross proceeds of $600 or more paid to an attorney.


There are several exceptions that do NOT require the 1099 MISC form, which are viewable on the IRS website. Be careful not to use the MISC form when another more specific 1099 form applies. These variations of the 1099 form are listed in this article library - just view the article titled, When to file a 1099 form.

All of these forms can be found at Eagle View Filing Solutions, where it's easy and inexpensive to file all of your tax forms throughout the year.

Direct-to-State Filing

Can I file reconciliation forms in this site?

No, reconciliation forms are not fillable on our site at the moment. Some states require additional forms to be filed, such as the Form W-R with the State of Oregon. To remain in compliance with your state's regulations, those types of forms need to be filed separately.

Can I file a correction with the State?

No, we do not support corrections for state data, only Federal corrections. However, if you haven't checked out with your forms yet, you can still go back and edit your state data. Once you have checked out those forms, you can only edit state data to be sent to the state as long we haven't filed your forms with the state yet. Please refer to the "Filed on" date on your Filed Forms page.

What are the charges to file Direct-to-State?

We offer this service as an add-on charge of $1.00 per form, regardless of the number of states being filed in one form. Example: if I file a W-2 that has all 4 states populated, my Direct-to-State add-on charge for that form is $1.00. If I file only 1 state on that form, my charge is still $1.00 in addition to the filing fee per form.

Will this site support more states?

YES, we are constantly adding states each season. Our target is to offer Direct-to-State e-filing to all CF/SP non-participant States, as long as they have State Income Tax.

What is the Combined Federal/State Program?

The CF/SP is a filing program in which the IRS shares State Income Tax data that you have declared in your 1099 forms with the particular states listed on your forms. There are currently 30 states that participate in this program for 1099 information.

Note: W-2 Forms are submitted to the SSA, which does NOT participate in the Combined Federal/State Filing Program.

What is Direct-to-State filing?

Direct to State filing allows customers to file their 1099-MISC, 1099-NEC and W-2 forms with the states that do not participate in the Combined Federal/State Program.
