Closing the Payroll Year
Every new year I get calls from customers saying that flowerSoft is being “stubborn” and not letting them print the W-2 forms.
If you are one of those customers, remember that you must close the payroll year before flowerSoft will allow you to print the W-2s.
Perhaps the problem is that the option to close the payroll year is in the Periodic Procedures menu, so in order to avoid those calls next year, I have now added the option to close the year as a pre-requisite to the option to print W-2s and 1099s.
Please note that W-2 forms change almost every year and the form flowerSoft is set up to print may not match the current form exactly. Printing the report above will allow you to either type or write the W-2s manually.
