Before you can make payments to your vendors, you must enter your tax identification number that you use to file your taxes. This tax ID number will be used to report the payments to the IRS and will appear on your forms 1099 and 1096.
Note: If you are already a Patriot Software payroll customer, the company federal Employer Identification Number (EIN) already entered on your Tax Settings page will be used automatically. The Company Tax ID link will not appear, and you can skip these steps. However, if you only use Accounting without Payroll, you will need to enter either your federal EIN or your Social Security Number (SSN) on the Company Tax ID page.
To add your tax ID info:
Settings > Accounting > Accounting Settings > Company Tax ID.
- Click Edit.
- Enter your EIN or your SSN (whichever you use to file your taxes.) Use your SSN only if you do not have a federal EIN.
- Click Save.
