Hi folks, I just found this SBA site, so please excuse if topic is misplaced. It's a bit of a rant.Most years I have a small number of 1099-Misc forms to file, usually only 2 or 3.As far as I can tell, my options are to acquire and file the paper forms by US Mail, or to pay an e-file broker to file them electronically for me. Is there some direct, no pay, electronic option?My desire, of course is to fill the forms on-screen and file electroncially, directly to the IRS, no fee. I can then send copy to payee by email or print and send via USPS. My state does not have income tax or withholding, but where required, the copy to state should also be direct by email or concurrent from the IRS. One up and running model for this is the way employee tax forms and info are transmitted to the Social Security Admin. Another model would be for the IRS to offer a fillable, savable form which can be emailed directly to them.The IRS Publications and Forms warning that the downloadable 1099 form is not scannable is out ot date. Yes, printers could mess it up and make it hard to scan, but let's just skip the print/scan and file on-line, or by email of form filled on-screen. This can coexist with the IRS printed forms.I have sent this whine to the Taxpayer Advocate Service. Would the appeal be more effective if sent to some other agency or place? OK - thanks for any comments
