I love your software so I bought a license on 8/20/2010.
I have a computer repair business and will let my business customers know about your software.
We were very impressed with the software so far. ezPaycheck gives us exactly what we need.
Wow, you are amazingly fast! I thought it would take a while to get this up and running again but that is as close to as instant customer service/response as you can get!
Thank you again,
Great. We do a lot of check printing for our clients and used another check printing software which was not flexible at all. Yours is very simple and kind of what we were looking for, so thatís why I am trying to give feedback so you can do it even better.
All I can say is WOW!! I know that I made those suggestions and you had said something about a gift. I honestly didn't think you would take it to this level. I want you to know that is it so nice and( I say that from the bottom of my heart) cause you know that most people would not have even remembered that they said anything about that and would have charged me for the upgrades. So I want to Thank you and the people of Halfpricesoft.com. If for nothing else than for renewing my faith in people and companies. Tell the bosses that everyone deserves a raise. WOW ! Again I want to thank you all. You all have made a friend today.
Your new Friend
Michael (but all friends call me Mike)
Thanks a bunch. You are the first one in a business that has ever been really nice like that.
I have to start by saying that you folks are amazing. I've been in the software business for over 20 years and I've never heard of such a quick response to a customer inquiry. I am really impressed and send you kudos or high fives or whatever is current now (fist bumps?).
Really great customer service.
Thank you for your prompt and excellent support. Not many customer-servicers have the capacity to look beyond getting a dollar today, I think most would have said, "well, we have his money, and it was HIS choice to buy 2010-only rather than wait until the bug was fixed, so case closed". They would keep my dollar today, but never get another one from me again. You, on the other hand, now have my loyatly (though perhaps not much for me to buy from you, haha)
If you don't have a sincere desire to help others, you should not be in "CUSTOMER service", eh?
Thank you again.
ezCheckpersonal worked out great! the Logo option really makes a difference on the checks. i went ahead and purchased this version.
ezPaycheck worked great! Thank you so much...
You have already given me 1000% more customer service than company I am changing from.
I appreciate that.
5 Tips for Easing the Pain of Filing W2 and 1099 Forms this Tax Season
Software designed for filing and printing Form W2 and Form 1099 can make the process much easier, but only when it does what you need it to for a price that is reasonable for your small business. Here are 5 tips that will help you quickly decide whether a software product youíre considering is right for you.
Every year small business owner must file not only their personal and business taxes, but also report the earnings of every employee on their payroll. Gathering all that information about your employees and filling out all those Form W2ís can be quite a headache, especially if you have to also file Form 1099ís to report earnings paid to non-employees, like contractors and service providers.
And, unfortunately, the March 1 deadline for filing these forms means you only have two months after the end of the year to get everything filed. If yours is like many small businesses, youíre also using this time to set goals for the year and plan your marketing and promotions. Thereís just a lot to do.
One way to make the job of filing W2ís and 1099ís a lot easier and faster is to use specialized software that helps you compile each employeeís payroll information and automatically populate all the necessary forms. However, small business owners need to be careful to purchase the right kind of software. The software you purchase should decrease your burden, not cost you an arm and a leg or require you to spend unnecessary time learning how to use it. Letís look at a few quick tips for determining whether a particular W2 and 1099 software is right for your small business:
1. Your W2 software should be easily affordable and geared for small businesses
Youíre only going to use this software once a year and you donít have thousands of employees. Quality W2 & 1099 software can be acquired for as little as $39. Donít pay hundreds or even thousands of dollars for software with features small businesses donít need.
2. Your W2 software should be easy to use and not require a lot of time to learn
One downfall of many W2 and other tax-related software programs is that they are difficult to use, often designed for use by accountants. As a business owner with better things to do than spend hours learning how to use software for a once-a-year application, make sure that the software you use is intuitive, requiring very little or no learning curve.
3. Your W2 software should be capable of printing two forms per page on a laser-printed page that meets IRS and Social Security Administration requirements
The IRS and Social Security Administration now accept properly formatted laser-printed forms as an alternative to the traditional red drop-out ink forms. The right software can save your business significant money by eliminating the need for expensive red ink forms. Make sure your software has this capability and that its laser-printed forms comply with IRS and SSA requirements. Additionally, a good W2 software will print two W2ís or 1099ís per pageóone employee or contractor on the top half, and one on the bottom. This will also save you money.
4. Make sure you can try your W2 software without risk or obligation before buying it
Now matter how little you pay for your software, itís expensive if it doesnít meet your needs, is difficult to use or requires you to spend a lot of time learning it. Make sure that you can try your chosen software as long as you need to so you have the time you need to make sure itís right for you. Some companies offer limited demo version of their software or offer your money back if you decide within 30-90 days that you donít like it. But even better are companies that offer you a free download of their fully-functioning version to try before you buy.
5. Your W2 software should be updated with all current year forms required by the IRS and SSA for employee payroll reporting, including W2, W3, 1099, and 1096
This is very important. You donít want to end up with software that can only print last yearís forms. That does you no good at all.
ďA lot of tax-related software available for businesses have too many features and therefore cost much more than small businesses need to pay or can afford to pay,Ē said Dr. Ge, founder of business software manufacturer Halfpricesoft.com. ďOn the other hand, many inexpensive versions cut too many corners and donít do all that they claim, so you should make sure that you can try it without cost or obligation to make sure that itís right for you.Ē
Dr. Ge says Halfpricesoft.comís ezW2 2009 software is one of the only inexpensively priced W2 software packages available that meets all five of the criteria listed above. The full-version software is available for free download at www.halfpricesoft.com/w2_software.asp.
Hopefully these tips will save you money and eliminate frustration for you as your business gears up to file W2ís and 1099ís this tax season. Thereís no reason this once-a-year task should have you pulling your hair out or keep you up late at night.
