2021 941/Unemployment Express Updates

Date: January 19, 2022

Program: 2021 W-2/1099 & 941/Unemployment Express Update 17.15 (10.15 for W-2/1099 Users)

Subject: Update 17.15

Dear TaxTime USA, Inc. Customer,

  • This update now doesn’t push long Payer (Company) names onto the address line.

  • This update now fixes a potential e-file rejection with the IRS Fire system for Form 1099-MISC. If you have received a rejection e-mail from the Fire system for any 1099-MISC you previously uploaded to the Fire system, you will need to go to your Fire account to review the error message. If the error message is similar to: “You cannot report Amount code G (Prior Year Non-employee Compensation) in an "A" Record positions 28-43 for current year Form 1099-MISC”, you will need to re-upload your file(s). To do so, from the file menu in our software, go to 1099 E-file Manager and then highlight the que where the rejected file is (you do not have to create a new que) then click on the “Create 1099-IRS Submittable File” button. A message will indicate: “E-file was already created, do you want to create a file with an existing section?” Click: Yes. Continue following prompts. Go into the IRS Fire system and upload new files as a Replacement file.

    Please Note: If you did not previously download Update 17.10 and are using both 941/MI Unemployment Express & W-2/1099 Express you will need to re-register your program using the information sent to you in the Ver 17.10 Update Email

  • Our 2021 software automatically checks for any updates when going into the program and if it finds any it will ask whether or not the update should be loaded. If you disabled auto update (this feature can be found in Setup/Configuration and then clicking on the Defaults Tab; near the bottom there is a check box: Always check for updates when going into program) then download the update following instructions below. If you allowed for Auto Update you can check to make sure you are now using Version 17.15 or 10.15 for W-2/1099 Express Users by clicking on Help and then About.

  • This Update includes any prior updates.
