VERSATILE QUARTERLY REPORTING

UNEMPLOYMENT REPORT
A universal plain-paper/standard form report with operator selected tax basis, tax authority and FUTA/SUTA limit provides quarterly reporting needs in a standard form acceptable to most taxing authorities. The Unemployment Report is also available for any time period and for any single state, locality, or other tax authority, making it useful as a wage report for city E-tax returns, also. Variations of the standard style, as well as Extended Reports from our library for AZ, CA, HI, MI, MO, MN, NC, NJ, TX, UT, WA Industrial Insurance, and other state-peculiar forms are available on special order.

STATE RETURNS ON DISKETTE
Optional magnetic media reporting is available now for AL, CA, FL, HI, ID, MO, NC, NV, TX, UT, VA, and WI. New State Quarterly Reports on Diskette are being implemented as the States issue the specifications: check with LPI for up-to-date information on your state(s).

FEATURE-PACKED END-OF-YEAR REPORTING

VERSATILE UP-TO-DATE W-2 SUPPORT
Supports all Box 12 codes! Handles EIC, SUI/SDI, "Reporting Only" items, and more! Produces your choice of 1-Wide Dated and 1-Wide No-Date continuous forms, 2-Wide, 2-Wide Mailer, and 2-Wide "M-Format" Mailer styles. Also handles preprinted laser forms in 2-up and 4-up condensed styles, and optionally laser-creates the black copies. Computer Prints your Postal Permit on continuous mailer styles so you get complete, "ready to mail" forms. Built-in Alignment Test and "Soft Set" left margin. Automatically prints continuation forms as required to complete all Box 12 reporting "in line" per the latest SSA specifications. State/Local selection capability speeds production of multiple State/Local submittal copies. W-2's can be produced in any of five sorting orders.

1099-MISC FORMS
Automatically handles independent contractors mixed in the file with employees. At year end, independent contractors get 1099-MISC forms instead of W-2's in operator's choice of either continuous or laser cut sheet form styles.

W-3 & 1096 SUMMARY REPORTS
Your W-3 or 1096 is available as a handy feeder report for employers who don't want to buy a whole box of forms just to print one or two. For professional payroll preparers, DATASMITH Payroll will print the actual W-3 or 1096 form on standard laser-compatible cut sheet forms. Besides using this report for submittals, you can use it to generate subtotals for a specific state and/or locality.

NEED MORE TIME AT YEAR END?
No more long days or sleepless nights just when you've got serious partying to do! DATASMITH Payroll allows overlapped processing! With this feature, you can start processing the next year immediately...even before the last payroll of this year has been completed...which can give you up to 60 extra days to finish year end adjustments and W-2 production!

STOP FORMS WASTE!!
Intelligent Forms Restart preserves all Subtotals and Totals: allowing you to continue an interrupted run starting at any employee...so the two pieces together look just like one error-free continuous run!

YOU CAN PRINT JUST ONE!
W-3 ONLY and 1096 ONLY selections allow a pre-run audit of totals and tell you exactly how many forms you'll need: including those nasty, hard-to-figure continuation forms! Single-employee W-2 or 1099-MISC reprint takes the hassle out of replacing lost forms!

PAPERLESS FILING, TOO!
SSA-standard W-2's on diskette has been included in every DATASMITH Payroll since 1986. This facility includes a convenient formatted paper listing of the actual diskette submitted, and a splice utility to combine multiple payrolls. You won't need the red Copy A forms at all! And you can virtually eliminate pre-printed forms waste at year end by using diskette filing together with our laser-created tax forms option with blank tax form stock.

IRS FORM 6559
An IRS Form 6559 Report is automatically produced whenever you produce W-2's on diskette. It includes information needed by the organization transmitting the diskettes to the SSA.

SPECIAL REPORTING DONE YOUR WAY!
DATASMITH licensees have full control over the setup, composition, and reporting of Allocated Tips, Nonqualified Plans, Dependent Care Benefits, Fringe Benefits, Pension Plans, Cafeteria Plans, Sick Pay, etc. Set up and report multiple-component plans using mixtures of deductions and pay categories with ease! You'll find that many of these items can be handled automatically on a "pay as you go" basis without requiring separate year-end adjustments!
