Menu Item File Arrow Head Print Forms for Selected Record

 

Account Ability prints recipient returns on laser, inkjet, and generic dot matrix printers. If your printer preferences are configured for GDI, printed output can also be saved to portable document format (PDF) files.  Account Ability offers a free PDF writer, IDMSPDF, capable of writing recipient returns to distinct PDF files (see Printing to PDF Files).

 

Paper ClipIDMSPDF can be downloaded from the Account Ability website, www.IDMSInc.com.

 

The printed and summary indicators (1094, 1096, W-3, W-3C), displayed at the top of each tax form, determine whether or not the recipient's return should be printed or included in the summary transmittal, respectively. These indicators are defined below.

 

Printed: If this indicator is checked, the recipient's return is considered already printed and is not printed again. After printing all recipients, it is suggested that you set all of the printed indicators in order to avoid duplicate printing.
1094: If checked, the recipient's return is included in the total on transmittal 1094.
1096: Account Ability automatically totals each file of Information Returns when preparing summary transmittal 1096. If checked, the recipient's return is included in the total; Otherwise, it is excluded.
W-3: Account Ability automatically totals each file of W-2s when preparing summary transmittal W-3. If checked, the recipient's return is included in the total; Otherwise, it is excluded.
W-3C: Account Ability automatically totals each file of W-2Cs when preparing summary transmittal W-3C. If checked, the recipient's return is included in the total; Otherwise, it is excluded.
