“PayCycle’s 1099 E-File service is the efficient way to file contractor documents. Previously, I would buy 1099 and 1096 forms, print them, go to the post office to send the 1096s by certified mail, check on delivery to the IRS – and then do the whole thing again when there was a problem!,” said Diane Hagglund, DH Marketing. “Now, with PayCycle’s 1099 service, I can enter recipient data online and file the form electronically with a click of a button saving a lot of time and hassle.
