Set up and use the IRS 1096 form in the US version

Form 1096 is used to transmit paper tax forms to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in the United States. This feature lets you run the Form 1096 report in Business Central and send it to the IRS, if necessary. The feature is only related to already transmitted 1099 paper forms.

Note

1096 Form reporting supports only the IRS codes supported for 1099 Form reporting in Business Central. If you add manually other IRS codes to the 1096 Form lines, those codes will not be printed on the report.
