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.
If you will be printing your W-2 forms this year rather than using the Complete W-2 eFiling Service through Aatrix, we suggest the following options:
W–2 Forms and Envelopes
Option A: Order blank perforated forms and envelopes with nothing printed on the back of the forms
