Year end is here again!
The following updates will affect customers who have the Accounts Payable and Payroll modules. Both updates will be available to download the week of December 22, 2014.
Interim Release Download (IRD) is required to update forms and program changes for e-filing and reporting for 2014 requirements. Sage has incorporated these changes into the Sage 100 ERP 2014 IRD.

• Sage is no longer providing W-2, 1099, and 941 form updates that are accessed through the standard menu tasks. Your customers will be able to use Federal and State eFiling and Reporting features, which allow them to print W-2/W-3, 941, 940, and 1099/1096 forms, as well as 330+ tax forms, directly to their printer—or, they can choose to e-file, which is processed by Aatrix for a nominal fee. Fees to e-file are only incurred when they actually choose to e-file forms using Aatrix. More details.
• Sagehighly recommends you download the eFiling and Reporting Guide from the support portal and search for KB ID 53295 to assist you and your customers.
• The 2014 IRD and 2015Q1 TTU are the last year-end updates that will be released for version 4.50, please see Sage 100 ERP supported versions.
