    Hi Madhu,

    As per note 2554020 and 2477041 we applied latest changes for 1099.  In the below

    In SPRO -> Extended Withholding Tax -> General Withholding Tax report -> Define Output Group ->  We Make sure output group is calling Pre-Print forms.

    After maintaining Printout 1  (Form) : IDWTCERT_US_1099MISC_PRE_PRINT , State form started printing correctly.

    If I apply same form IDWTCERT_US_1099MISC_PRE_PRINT or IDWTCERT_US_1099MISC1 for Printout 2  (Form) print out for federal gets overwritten.

    Do we have different PRE PRINT form for Federal?

      HI Abhijeet,

      1. We dont have Pre_print for 1099Misc1.
      2. As far as I know, State level is out-of-scope. However, US customers can reuse the existing Extended Withholding Tax functionality built originally for Federal level. If there is a functionality gap to cover the any State requirement, they can add custom development for State Level at their own responsibility and support.  Globalization Services only covers for USA a few tax reports like the federal tax form 1099-MISC,int,g,k,1042s.                       Regards                                                                                                                               Madhu Maddula

    Hi Madhu

    Thanks for the Nice Blog and information on US legal changes for various forms.

    Can we have MISC1 pre-print form also along with MISC-pre print, then it would be more helpful.
