Do I have to buy the W2/1099 program even if I have LivePayroll?

Michael Toney Updated by Michael Toney

Yes, assuming that you want to generate W-2 and/or 1099/1098 forms. CFS sells 4 Payroll System programs:

Additionally, users may enhance the W2/1099 base program by purchasing W2/1099 e-File Add-on. Users can also buy Payroll System Network Upgrade.

Some users only want one of the foregoing programs. Others want all. One person might simply buy W2/1099 whereas another might buy both LivePayroll and W2/1099. Whether few or all, the software works in concert as one program.

For pricing, see or call (800) 343-1157.

How did we do?

Do I have to buy the Payroll Network license for every Payroll System program I have?

Do I need to buy the W2/1099 program and W2/1099 e-file Add-on in order to electronically file W2/1099 returns?
