Vermont Releases 1099 and W-2 Electronic Reporting Specifications for Tax Year 2018

Vermont has recently released specifications for the electronic reporting of 1099s and W-2s for tax year 2018.  The 1099 specifications match those published by the IRS.  The published W-2 specifications remain the same from those for tax year 2017.  Note, however, that the W-2 specifications are titled “2018 Vermont Specifications for Electronic W-2 (EFW-2) Filing,” but the second page, where the specifications proper are presented, is titled “2017 Code RS Record Layout—State of Vermont.”  This is probably an editorial error, but a subsequent material modification may be made.
