Can I e-file 1099 with North Carolina using eNC3 Specifications for 1099 Reporting

0 votes
I need to know specifically if your software can enable me to e-file the 1099-MISC form with the state of NC and comply with North Carolina Department of Revenue eNC3 Specifications for 1099 Reporting.

This is a new requirement for the 2016 year. I was told by my accounting software company that your software can handle this for me after a download or transfer of the information from their software to W2 Mate. Please let me know what is possible and what I would need to purchase to accommodate this.

Yes you should be able to e-File your 1099-MISC data with NC using our software.

You will need 

W2 Mate Software Plus
W2 Mate Option #4 (Electronic Filing)

If you want to import the data you need  W2 Mate Option #3 (Import).

How to e-File North Carolina 1099-MISC Forms
Step # 1: 
Start by importing or manually entering your 1099-MISC data inside W2 Mate software.
Step # 2:
Under the Company General Information tab inside W2 Mate, make sure to enter "NC" for the State field. If you do have a “State Withholding Account Number” with NC, please enter under “Employer State ID” field.
Step # 3:
Very Important: Make sure Box 17 on all 1099-MISC forms is set to "NC". To be on the safe side, select from the top menu inside W2 Mate "Tools > Other Recipient / 1099 Tools > Update Box 17 (State, Payers State #) for multiple 1099-MISC Recipients" and select "NC" as the state abbreviation and the “State Withholding  Account Number” with NC under “New Payer’s State No.”
Step # 4:
From the top menu inside W2 Mate select "E-Filing > 1099-MISC Forms". 
Step # 5:
In the 1099 E-File dialog use "11111" (no quotes) for the TCC code since you are filing with the state.
Step # 6:
In the 1099 E-File dialog make sure you DO check the box "Include Combined Federal / State Filing Program Information".
Step # 7:
VERY Important: make sure the file name You enter under "Output File" ends with ".TXT" so North Carolina Knows that the file is in text format.
Step # 8:
Once all the data in the 1099 E-File dialog is populated, click the OK button. W2 Mate will create the file and show a success message.  
Step # 9:
Upload the file using the eNC3 web application located on the NC Department’s website at www.dornc.com/enc3/ or contact the state to see how to upload the file.
