The IRS has posted Publication 1220 for tax year 2013. It can be downloaded in PDF format from http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p1220.pdf. This is the first year Publication 1220 will no longer be issued as a Revenue Procedure. It will be a web based document that can be updated during the filing season. Last year the IRS made changes right into January which made it challenging for organizations to stay compliant and meet filing deadlines. Be sure to check the Section 3 What's New For Tax Year 2013. Here are some of the changes for tax year 2013: 1. Form 4419, Application for Filing Information Returns Electronically (FIRE), is now available as a fill-in form through the FIRE System located at https://fire.irs.gov. 2. The FIRE System is available from January 21, 2014, through December 12, 2014. The later starting date is to allow enough time for IRS systems to be updated before electronic files are accepted. 3. The FIRE Test System is available from November 12, 2013, through February 28, 2014. 4. Combined Federal/State Filing program – two new states have joined the program bringing the total participating states to 34.
- Michigan (code 26)
- Vermont (code 50)
