I am using TurboTax Business to prepare 1099s. Does anyone know if I have to use the red preprinted forms to submit to IRS (and if so how can i get Turbotax to print with these forms)? Or can I just submit the black and white 1099 form that TutboTax produces?
Not authoritative IRS pub, but first Google hit addresses this:
TurboTax website wrote: You do not need to use the red forms (government filing copy) to file your 1099-MISC and 1096 forms.
The IRS will accept these forms even if the are not printed in color.
You also have the option to e-file these forms using TurboTax (Home & Business edition for desktop or Self-Employed for online).
