Massachusetts 1099 and 1096 filing on paper and e-filing through electronic data transfer is fully supported inside our 1099 print and e-file software. W2 Mate, our W2 1099 software, allows MA filers to print 1099-MISC, 1099-INT, 1099-DIV and 1096 for filing with the MASS DOR.

Any individuals or institutions who issue 1099 forms (1099-MISC , 1099-INT or 1099-DIV) are required to file with the Massachusetts DOR an annual report of interest, dividends and other income taxable under G.L. c. 62. The income must be reported on the same basis as is required by the IRS.
For tax year 2009 and subsequent tax years (2010 , 2011, 2012..), if you are reporting 50 or more forms then you need to use electronic filing or “machine-readable form”. The format of 1099 e-file is similar to the one followed by the federal government as defined by the 1099 e-file specifications in IRS Publication 1220 (there are modifications to be made for municipal bond interest ). MASS 1099 e-file submissions should be uploaded using the Massachusetts Webfile for Business application (accessible from MASS.GOV) .
If you are filing less than 50 forms then you can use paper filing (1099 MISC Copy 1 ,1099 INT Copy 1, 1099-DIV Copy 1 and form 1096) . Mail all paper 1099 reports to:
Massachusetts Department of Revenue
Form 1099 Reporting
P.O. Box 7045
Boston, MA 02204
Our 1099 MISC software allows users to print 1099 forms on paper or to generate 1099 electronic filing submissions that comply with IRS “Specifications for Filing Forms 1098, 1099, 3921, 3922, 5498, 8935, and W-2G, Electronically” . Our 1099 tax software can also import data directly from QuickBooks, which helps QB users filing MASS 1099 forms to either print 1099s or e-file 1099 forms with Massachusetts DOR.
Persons filing 1099 reports must submit such forms on or before the last day of February following the close of the calendar year (for example end of Feb 2010 if filing MASS 2009 1099 forms ). Please note that although Massachusetts does participate in the Federal – State Combined Filing Program, you are still required to submit a Forms 1099 file directly to MASS DOR.
