  • Verify the current Fiscal year end date on the properties you will be processing 1099-INTs (Setup, Properties, General tab, Controls tab).
  • Verify the Tax name and Tax ID are entered on the Tenant setup (Setup, Tenants, General tab, Controls tab).
  • Verify the Address type selected for Send Interest Payments to is correct on the lease (Tasks, Manage Leases, Change Lease, General tab, Misc tab) and verify that the address for that address type is entered on the Tenant setup (Setup, Tenants, Address tab).
  • Accrue and pay all interest for the year.
  • Print the 1099 forms to plain paper and review the Status Report for errors and warnings.
  • Back up your Property Management files. Refer to How do I use File Tools to back up data files? (Supplemental Video)
  • Enroll with Aatrix if you are not enrolled already. Refer to How do I enroll for Aatrix eFiling?

Generate 1099-INTs

Important: You are allowed to file only once for each Federal Employer ID (FEIN) and form type.

If you will be processing multiple runs for 1099-INTs using the same FEIN in Accounts Payable and/or Property Management, be sure to select Yes, I use multiple 1099 data files for this (EIN) in the 1099 Setup Wizard. For detailed instructions on merging 1099 data files, see How do I combine files for my Form 1099 in Accounts Payable?

To Generate Aatrix 1099s:

  1. In Property Management, select Tasks, eFile Form 1099.
  2. In the Form 1099-INT window, select whether to open a New or Saved report. (This window appears only if you have a saved report.)
    • If you choose to open a Saved report, select the Federal ID number and click Open. In the Open Report window, select the report you want to open then click Edit. Select the option from the Available Actions that you want to perform: Reprint Completed 1099s, efile or Print Incomplete 1099s, Correct Completed 1099s, Start Over, or e1099 Password Lookup. Then click Next and continue with the on-screen instructions.
    • For New reports, enter the following:
      • Payer Source:
        • Select GL Prefix if you want to use the payer information listed in the GL prefix associated with the property. For example, the GL prefix that is assigned to the property may be 001-004-00. However, the fiscal entity is 001, which may have a different address.
        • Select Data Folder if you want to use the payer information listed with your company in File, Company Settings, General.
        • Note: The Payer Source selection is not displayed if your fiscal entity is set to Data Folder in GL, File, Company Settings, GL Settings.
      • Properties to Process: Select which properties you want to include in this run. You can select multiple properties as long as they share the same fiscal entity and the year in the Period End column is the same. (Tip: Scroll to the right to view this column in the grid.) The date in this column is the current period on the property (PM, Setup, Properties, General tab, Controls tab).
        Tip: Use SHIFT to select a range of properties and use CTRL to select specific properties.
      • Reporting Year: Select the correct year from the drop-down list. You can run 1099s for the current or previous year.
      • Federal ID Number: Enter the FEIN you want to use when filing the 1099 or accept the prefilled number. The prefilled FEIN is retrieved from the fiscal entity you set up.
        • If your fiscal entity is set to Data folder, the FEIN is located in GL, File, Company Settings, GL Settings.
        • If your fiscal entity is set to Prefix, the FEIN is located in GL, Setup, Prefix/Base, [prefix A, prefix B, or prefix C], Fiscal Settings.
      • Minimum Reporting Amount: Enter the minimum reporting amount. Leases with interest that are equal to or exceeds this amount will be included in the report.
      • Foreign Entity: You will not be able to process 1099s using Aatrix if you select Foreign Entity. This check box prefills if the Foreign Entity check box is selected in your fiscal entity:
        • If your fiscal entity is set at Data folder, this check box is located at GL, File, Company Settings, GL Settings, Calendar/ Fiscal Settings.
        • If your fiscal entity is set at Prefix, the check box is located where you set up your fiscal entity in GL, Setup, Prefix/Base, [prefix A, prefix B, or prefix C], Fiscal Settings.

      • If you add any states, additional boxes will become available in the W2/1099 Preparer grid.
      • The W2/1099 Preparer grid contains a column for the filing state for each recipient. This is the state to which the 1099 will be sent, if they require them.
      • The following states require account numbers listed on the 1099 forms even if there is no withholding: CT, LA, MT, NC, PA, VT, and WI. The software will automatically place these state account number on the 1099 forms.
      • To have an account number populate on the form that isn't one of the above states, add taxable amounts for the state in the Preparer grid. Withholding can be left blank if there was no withholding, but the state account number will populate on the form if a taxable amount is included.
  8. Click Next.
