The format has been altered to better suit online learning. Sessions are limited to four hours per day and run over multiple business days.

Why File Tax Forms Electronically?

Still thinking about trying electronic tax form filing? Filing tax forms electronically (“eFiling”) is by far the fastest and most efficient method. CenterPoint Payroll allows customers to file electronically, and information for tax forms is pulled directly from the information within CenterPoint Payroll. That information is then seamlessly placed onto the form on your computer, where forms can be saved, and can then be filed electronically via the internet. With this method, there are no stamps, forms or envelopes to be purchased. Also, filing happens instantly so there is no time delay for the mail. Filing electronically can also save significant time during the payroll process. Make this your year to increase efficiency during your tax form filing process, and give electronic filing a try!

Year-End Tax Forms

We would like to suggest the forms, perforated paper, and envelopes that you may need to purchase for processing W-2s, 1099s, and ACA forms (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 website. All 2021 forms are 25% off until January 31, 2022 (use promotion code RWCFITD when ordering).
From the Computer Forms, Inc. website, select Tax Forms, select the product you use, for example, CenterPoint or TurningPoint, and then select Order Laser W-2 Forms, Order Laser 1099 Forms, or Order ACA-1095 Forms (for CenterPoint only) to display the W-2, 1099 or ACA forms, perforated paper, and envelopes.
Note: 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. 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.
