Did You Know?

New “Product” Feature Available in CenterPoint Accounting for Agriculture Version 12.15
A growing need for raised crop product inputs is traceability. Maintaining products purchased and the ability to provide a list of products applied to each field are often needed. The new “Product” feature added to version 12.15 of CenterPoint Accounting for Agriculture allows you to trace those needs. This new feature is available within the program at no additional cost. As crop inputs move from pre-purchase to work-in-process to harvested crops, a product detail flows with the input without additional accounts, so the account list remains clean. Additionally, the product stores customized fields of information, for example EPA registration number, active ingredients, or your own management details such as growing days on seeds. For detailed information, see the Understanding and Using Products document, Understanding and Using Products video, or other Product videos in the Products section here.

Year-End Tax Forms

As the end of 2018 approaches, we would like to suggest the forms, perforated paper, and envelopes that you may need to purchase for processing W-2s, 1099s, and ACAs (for CenterPoint Payroll only). Forms, perforated paper, and envelopes can be purchased from Computer Forms, Inc. at redwing.computerforms.biz, by calling 800-458-0158, or by clicking the Order Checks and Forms icon on the Red Wing Software web site. All 2018 forms are 25% off until December 31, 2018 (use promotion code RWCFITD when ordering).
Perforated paper and envelopes can be purchased separately or as a package (Tax Pack). Ordering a Tax Pack will save you money and your savings increase based on the quantity you order in a Tax Pack.
If you order on the Computer Forms, Inc. web site, select Tax Forms, select the product you use, for example CenterPoint, Red Wing Payroll, or TurningPoint, and then select Order Laser 1099 Forms, Order Laser W-2 Forms, or Order ACA-1095 Forms (for CenterPoint only) to display the 1099, W-2, or ACA forms, perforated paper, and envelopes. If a Product Number is not displayed on the web site for your product, the form has been discontinued and is not necessary.
The W-2 and 1099 forms (excluding the Federal Red Copy) can be printed on the same plain perforated paper (if you choose to order the blank perforated paper with no backer instructions) and use the same envelope. Note: You can print the W-2 and 1099 forms on plain paper, but the IRS recommends the forms be printed on perforated paper. The W-3 can be printed on blank plain paper.
