CheckMark 1099 helps centralize all your 1099 filing needs. With this program you can print or even e-file all forms needed for filing 1099-MISC, 1099-DIV, 1099-INT, 1099-S, and 1099-R forms. The program has the option to print these forms on a pre-printed 2-up form or a blank sheet.
Before starting the set up of your company and recipients, please read through this manual. It covers general setup and 1099 requirements, as well as how you can receive additional support directly from Checkmark, Inc.
CheckMark 1099 can be installed on a computer running either Macintosh or Windows operating systems. This software is a single-user application and not designed for multi-user access of the data files. DO NOT install the application program on a server. Install the program locally on the user’s hard drive even if you save the data on a server.
Users will need to have a computer running an operating system of either Windows 7 or higher including Windows 10, or Macintosh OS X 10.6 or higher including El Capitan.
Along with a compatible printer, the latest version of Adobe Reader is also required to properly print certain forms from the program. You can download a free copy of Adobe Reader from Adobe’s website at www.Adobe.com.
Whichever operating system you choose, a working knowledge of the operating system is essential. For more information about the basics and navigation of your operating system, see the user manual that came with your computer.
Software and Patch Updates
Each year the program is issued with the latest 1099 Forms as well as added features. Program patches are released as needed throughout the year for the current version of the software. Patches are available online at www.checkmark.com. Hard Copy CDs can be purchased by calling the sales department at 800-444-9922.
Renewal notices are sent out each year, in the fall, announcing the next update. Updates must be purchased each year to receive support and the ability to install patches for changes.
