Older versions of the 1099
Annual Report Program
This page is for customers who have an older version of Power Closer's
optional 1099 Annual Report program and want to determine whether the old
program is still usable or requires an update. New and updating users may skip this page and
On this page:
The 1099 report program first used
to report Tax Year 2010 was used again to report Tax Years 2011, 2012 and 2013, and
appears to be good for Tax Year 2014. It is expected to
continue to work until at least November 1, 2015. The version number is 4.0,
which appears in the
title bar of the program. It can be used to report closings produced in Power
Closer 3 (the old HUD form) and Power Closer 4 (the 2010 HUD form).
1099 report programs first used for Tax Years 2006, 2007, and 2008, were all
accepted by IRS for reporting Tax Year 2009. However, IRS has made changes
that render those programs no longer usable after November 1, 2010. IRS has
made changes to the electronic filing specifications which render all older
versions of Power Closer's
Annual Report program out of date. Users should update to the current
version. The current version should be used even for
filing returns for earlier tax years.
Versions that were valid
The 1099 Annual Report program for TY 2007/2008/2009
Power Closer 1099 Annual Report Program version 3.3.x for Tax Year
2007, released in November, 2007, runs with
Windows 95, 98, Me, NT, 2000, XP, Vista, or Windows 7. It was originally designed to comply with the Tax Year
2007 data specification. It remained valid for filings made through October 2010.
The 1099 Annual Report program for TY 2006
If you purchased Power Closer 1099 Annual Report Program version
3.2.31 for Tax Year 2006, it was our understanding that you could continue to
use it through October 2010, subject to the following cautions.
During the summer of 2007, IRS changed the filing data specification for Tax Year
2007. Normally, this would require updating the report software. However,
because of the nature of the changes, and based on our conversations with IRS
representatives, our test filings and customer reports, IRS generally
accepted data prepared using version 3.2.31 through October 2010.
If you used version 3.2.31 then,
it was prudent to file early to allow time to resubmit if that became
necessary. You could also verify
that your data was accepted by IRS. To do this, you would revisit the IRS website on or
about the next business day after you uploaded the electronic submission, and
examine the status of your submission to see if it had been accepted.
Please note that Power Closer 1099 Annual Report Program version 3.2.31
was not designed to run on Windows Vista or Windows 7, and might probably encounter
running on those software platforms. That problem was fixed beginning in 1099
Annual Report Program version 3.3.0 for Tax Year 2007. Users of Vista
and Windows 7 should also upgrade Power Closer 3 to at least Power Closer version 3.3
Older versions of the 1099 Annual Report were rendered obsolete when IRS made
changes to report filing specifications effective November 1, 2010.

The report program file normally installed in a workstation's Power Closer
program folder, usually C:\P-Closer\1099rept.exe. The program's initial title bar
read "Select Tax-ID for this 1099 Annual
Report (3.x.xx)". If the program window is very narrow, you may
have to widen or maximize it to see the version number in the title bar.
We recommend that the obsolete programs be deleted to avoid using
them by mistake. Once the program is out of date, IRS no
longer accepts data created with them even for the tax year for which they were originally
designed. If you use an out of date version, IRS will probably be unable
to read the data, and you will likely receive a notice giving ten
days to resubmit in the correct format or incur penalties.
If you have a Transmitter Control Code (TCC) but there is a change in your
name, address or TIN shown on the Form 4419 you filed with IRS to obtain the
TCC, then you should notify IRS in writing. You may do this by email
addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org and
you should include reference to your TCC.
