New Sovos Tax Information Reporting Solution Solves Escalating Tax Challenges for Accounts Payable Leaders

March 12, 2019

Already regarded as the best 1099 reporting tool on the market, the recently upgraded Sovos Tax Information Reporting signed 150 new corporate and financial institution clients in just three months

Sovos’ new TIR solution is the only product able to perform real-time taxpayer identification number (TIN) checks and offers a simplified data import, consolidating information from multiple systems.


SAP CONCUR FUSION – Global tax software leader Sovos today announced that its new tax information reporting (TIR) solution, which debuted October 2018, gained more than 150 clients prior to the January tax season commencement. Sovos, the largest private 10-series filer in the United States, enhanced its TIR solution to make it more intuitive and integrate it with other technologies to solve a wider array of tax challenges.

Sovos’ new TIR solution is the only product able to perform real-time taxpayer identification number (TIN) checks and offers a simplified data import, consolidating information from multiple systems. Controllers and accounts payable (AP) managers can now use Sovos to solve a number of tax challenges, including conducting 1099 reporting for contractors and lease payments, identifying use tax obligations, validating tax on vendor invoices, and streamlining federal and state reporting.

The escalating pace and burden of TIR 
“Tax information reporting has accelerated over the past five years, and as a result, AP leaders have had to work harder and faster in the month of January,” said Paul Banker, general manager at Sovos. “We recognized their desire for easy-to-use 1099 software that navigates them through all reporting requirements in a tight time frame. The rapid adoption of our updated TIR product illustrates the pain point in the market and the need for this solution.”

The 2015 PATH Act expedited federal due dates for W-2 and 1099-MISC with nonemployee compensation from March 31st to January 31st because the IRS wanted to reconcile more real-time information with individual tax returns before issuing refunds. States quickly followed this trend by advancing traditional February and March state reporting to January. In fact, 87 percent of state reporting now occurs in January, versus three years prior, when only 22 percent of state reporting occurred in January.

“As federal and state governments go digital and move toward real-time tax systems, AP professionals are facing constant form changes and exponential penalty increases, requiring them to invest more time and money into reporting than ever before,” Banker continued. “As deadlines tighten and regulations evolve, Sovos is committed to continually enhancing our TIR solution so AP leaders can solve tax information reporting for good.”
