Getting Started


MAG-FILER 2017 is available for Pre-Order!

QuickBooks- MAG-FILER has been updated for version 21702 with the "Print PDF" W2 change. See the Manual for more information.

Installation- We have simplified the installation tools. Now one installer will allow you to install to a work station or the network.

Note: QuickBooks Form W-2 suffixes only have first character. Manually enter and look for the Quickbooks Updates.

New Correction Wizzard

The IRS changed filing deadlines last year. E-Filing many forms with the IRS must be done at the same time as delivering the 1099 to the Payee. This naturally leads to an increased number of corrections.

MAG-FILER streamlines the corrected return printing and E-Filing process and eliminates much of the confusion around the different types of corrections.

I export out my vendors to your program which combines the duplicate vendors I have in my system and then delete those that are under 600.00 and shazam - I have a clean file to send to the IRS for TIN matching. I love your program and let's not forget to mention your exceptional support.”
