Press Release

Filing Form W2's and 1099's is Faster than Ever with ezW2's New Data Upload Feature

New 1099 W2 Software Help Business Owners Meet Feb 1, 2010 Mailing Deadline

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.

Halfpricesoft.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. 

Anyone looking for an easier way to print and file W2's, W3's, 1099's and 1096's, can try ezW2 2009 without cost or obligation. The software is available for free download at http://www.halfpricesoft.com/w2-software-free-download.asp. This is not a demo or trial version. All features are available and there are no time limitations. It is the complete software. However, documents will print with a "DEMO" or "SAMPLE" watermark across each page until a license key is purchased. The license key is just $39.

The download package includes a sample database, which makes sampling ezW2 2009 even easier. Users don't have to waste time entering data just to try the software; all they have to do is upload the sample database and start trying the features. This saves customers time and money and ensures that ezW2 2009 is right for them before they buy.

ezW2 2009 supports an unlimited number of businesses, making it ideal for accountants who need a simple solution to filing W2's, 1099's, W3's and 1096's for their clients. This feature also makes the software ideal for entrepreneurs with multiple businesses.

Other products available from Halfpricesoft.com include paycheck and check writing software, barcode printing software, and time sheet software. The web site also contains several resources to help small businesses with their accounting and tax reporting needs.

So the dumpster is on fire. Again. The site's down. Your boss's face is an ever-deepening purple. And you begin debating whether you should join the #incident channel or call an ambulance to deal with his impending stroke. Yes, we know this is a developer's fault. There's plenty of time for blame later. Postmortems have a macabre name because they were once intended to be Viking-like funerals for someone's job. But we're civilized now. Sort of. So we call them post-incident reviews. Fires are never going to stop. We're human. We miss bugs. Or we fat finger a command - deleting dozens of servers and bringing down S3 in US-EAST-1 for hours - effectively halting the internet. These things happen.
Hackers took three days to identify and exploit a known vulnerability in Equifax’s web applications. I will share new data that reveals why three days (at most) is the new normal for DevSecOps teams to move new business /security requirements from design into production. This session aims to enlighten DevOps teams, security and development professionals by sharing results from the 4th annual State of the Software Supply Chain Report -- a blend of public and proprietary data with expert research and analysis.Attendees can join this session to better understand how DevSecOps teams are applying lessons from W. Edwards Deming (circa 1982), Malcolm Goldrath (circa 1984) and Gene Kim (circa 2013) to improve their ability to respond to new business requirements and cyber risks.

The digital transformation is real! To adapt, IT professionals need to transform their own skillset to become more multi-dimensional by gaining both depth and breadth of a wide variety of knowledge and competencies. Historically, while IT has been built on a foundation of specialty (or "I" shaped) silos, the DevOps principle of "shifting left" is opening up opportunities for developers, operational staff, security and others to grow their skills portfolio, advance their careers and become "T"-shaped.
