Payroll and 1099 updates are scheduled to be released the week of 12/21/2015. Since W2s and 1099s are not due until the end of January, you do have some time to apply these updates. Like last year, we are focusing all the year-end updates through one person, Michael Coman so he gets very good at the task. If you would like to schedule Michael Coman to apply the updates for you or to give you instructions on how to download the files, call or e-mail Michael at 614-568-2108 or email@example.com.
