IRS seeks to lower e-filing threshold

Eric Updated by Eric

The Taxpayer First Act gave the IRS the authority to lower the e-file threshold for information returns. The proposed thresholds, if finalized, will lower from 250 to:

  • 100 starting in January;
  • 10 starting in January 2023.

Additionally, if the aggregate number of information returns (W-2 and any type of 1099) reach the threshold, then the company is required to file electronically.

Furthermore, corrected returns must be filed in the same manner as the original: e-filed or paper filed.

If you haven't yet purchased our e-filing add-on to the W2/1099 program, please take a look at it before these new regulations go into effect. If you've already purchased it, please see our documentation.

How did we do?
