Users of the popular W2s and 1099 filing software ezW2 2009 can now upload employee, contractor and tax data from outside programs and spreadsheets. Halfpricesoft.com added the new feature after customers requested it. Users no longer need to enter data for each customer and contractor by hand.
Online PR News – 28-January-2010 – – Now it's easier than ever for small business owners and tax preparers to print and file W2's and 1099's this tax season. Newly released updates to the 2009 edition of ezW2 software now allow users to import employee and contractor data from other programs and spreadsheets.
Halfprice.com, the Louisville, Ky-based software firm that created and distributes ezW2, added the new feature at the request of customers who enjoyed many of the other features in the 2009 release.
"It's important to us that ezW2 be exactly what our customers need it to be," said Halfpricesoft.com founder Dr. Ge. "Many of our users keep employee data in other software programs and wanted an easy way to import that data to ezW2."
The new feature added to ezW2 2009 allows users to import employee lists, contractors lists and certain tax information from .csv files—a common format used by spreadsheet software. Users can export their data from other programs and spreadsheets into the .csv format and then import it into ezW2 2009. This saves customers time, because they don't have to enter all the information for each employee and contractor by hand. The data import function is straight forward and easy to use, says Dr. Ge.
Released in December, ezW2 2009 is the latest release of this popular tax-related software designed with non-accountants in mind. The 2009 edition includes all state and federal updates needed for filing W2, W3, 1096 and 1099 forms in the 2010 tax season.
Also new to the 2009 release of ezW2 is the ability to print two sets of W2 or 1099 data on one red form sheet. Print one employee's or contractor's data on the top half of the sheet and another on the bottom. Business owners can now cut costs for red form sheets in half.
