Integrate Zoho Books and Tax1099.com

We are proud to integrate with Zoho Books this tax season. Transporting your data into our system is simple. Here’s how you can import:

In Zoho Books

In Zoho Books, go to Reports > Taxes > 1099 Report. You can set new rules for the current tax year. If you have rules from a prior year, you can apply those rules. When you create a rule, you associate an Expense Account with a Box Category on the 1099-MISC form. Here’s an example of rules you might set:
Click “Generate Report,” and you’ll see your results below the rules. It’s a good idea to export the report, so you can check the integration.

In Tax1099.com

After you’ve set the rules in Zoho Books, login to Tax1099.com. Go to the Imports tab, and click Zoho Books. Select the appropriate tax year and enter your Zoho login credentials. If you get a message stating “Data or amount not present for year 2015,” go back to Zoho Books. Make sure that you have rules setup for that year.

In Tax1099.com, look for vendors who may have red dots next to their names. Click on “flag” at the top of the table to filter the grid for vendors with red dots. These vendors may have data formatting issues. You can fix these in Tax1099.com or return to Zoho Books to fix the errors. If you edit in Zoho Books, you’ll need to re-import. Download the error list before fixing any errors so that you can have it as a reference.

Many edits can be made from within Tax1099.com. You can also bulk edit, by choosing the “Apply to Selected” option. This feature allows you to change box categories for multiple vendors at one time.

As you make changes, the system auto-saves. If you exit during the process, you can return to the last auto-save. You should process one company to completion. The system only stores data for one company at a time.

E-file forms

We schedule all forms to E-file with the IRS on the deadline date, March 31. This gives you a window of time to make edits. After you submit the form, you can make changes until the scheduled date. If the scheduled date of the form has past, edits must be made using a corrected form.

Vendor form delivery is also available through Tax1099.com. We offer e-delivery through e-mail and/or through a secured portal. With our portal service, we track vendor opt-in statuses. This is required under IRS Publication 1179. You can also request USPS mail service from Tax1099.com. If you’d like to print and mail the forms yourself, you may do so. Forms can be downloaded from your account, and printed on blank paper.

  • Integrate with Zoho Books and other leading accounting software
  • File forms/corrected forms year-round
  • Access your forms online at any time
