Qwil will file 1099s for contractors of companies who request this service. A platform must opt-in to the service in order for Qwil to file tax forms on behalf of your Contractors. Qwil has partnered with Intuit to file and deliver our Form 1099 tax filing service in 2019. By enrolling, you agree to the terms of Qwil’s filing service: qwil.co/tax-filing-terms.

How do I enroll our company in Qwil's 1099 tax filing service?
As of tax year 2019, platform Admins will be able to enroll in Qwil’s 1099 filing process directly in the webapp. In early October, you'll see invitations to enroll appear in the webapp. You'll need to either Enroll or Opt Out of this service. The deadline to enroll is November 30th, 2019. If you fail to enroll by this date you’ll be automatically opted out of the filing service.

What are Qwil's Form 1099 tax filing services?
Qwil will mail copies of e-filed Form 1099s to each contractor using the address information registered in the Qwil Platform following e-filing with the IRS. If you or your Contractor(s) require a correction to the e-filed Form 1099, you must submit a request to support@qwil.com with complete information no later than March 15th, 2020.

Qwil will provide you electronic copies of e-filed Form 1099 tax forms under your EIN upon request using a secure method of transmission of Qwil’s choice. Due to information security requirements, Qwil will not provide electronic copies via email. Qwil will not provide copies of any Form 1096.

What are my responsibilities as a Platform Administrator?

You must enroll in the Qwil 1099 Filing Service using the Qwil webapp no later than November 30th, 2019. You also have the option to include additional historical 2019 earnings for any of your contractors via the Qwil webapp. You must submit any additional historical 2019 earnings no later than December 15th, 2019.

You're responsible for the accuracy of all 2019 earnings information registered with the Qwil Platform. Please be sure that you have not registered any non-taxable earnings (such as expense reimbursements) for any Contractor in the Qwil Platform.
