Tips & Tricks from the Trenches

We can always count on the Help Desk Team to provide relevant information when it comes to hot issues like taxes.

1. Remember when you are doing the December 2017 Bank Reconciliation to change the year to 2017. The system automatically defaults to the current year.

2. Be sure to review the owner statements and Account Payables Journal for vendors and compare these to the 1099 summary report.

3. For general information in the Knowledge Base regarding 1099s, go to VRM Knowledge Base for the Client Console (Wiki) > Accounting > Accounting Procedures – How To > Year End Procedures including 1099’s.

4. You can also find printing help under VRM Knowledge Base for the Client Console (Wiki) > Accounting > 1099’s > Printing 1099's.

5. Review the "Instructions for Filing 1099s” document for help with this. It is located in the Admin Console under Miscellaneous > Manual > Miscellaneous Documentation > 1099’s. This is a detailed document.

6. The IRS made some formatting changes to the 1099 forms that will require you to make an adjustment from your Print Configuration Menu prior to printing your 1099's. For instructions on how to make the modifications please view the "Printing your 1099 in the Different Browsers” video located in The Knowledge Base under VRM Knowledge Base for the Client Console (Wiki)> 14.0.0 General How to Answers.
