Year-End Close: Creating & Printing 1096s

*Updated for 2018*

The end of the year is right around the corner and the Rent Manager® support team wants you to have access to the information, tips, and tricks that will make your year-end close straightforward and problem-free.


Once you’ve generated and printed your Vendor or Owner 1099s, you need to create 1096 forms (essentially a cover letter for your 1099s).

  1. For Vendor 1096s, go to Reports>Accounts Payable>Vendor 1096.
    For Owner 1096s, go to Reports>Owners>Owner 1096.
  2. Choose the report options you used to create your 1099s.
  3. Click Create Report.
  4. Load pre-printed 1096 IRS tax forms into your printer.*
  5. Click Print.

And just like that, you’re done!

For complete instructions on how to process year-end tax documents and reports in Rent Manager, refer to our Year-End Close Resource Center or log into your Rent Manager University account.

*It’s advised to conduct a printer test with one form to confirm proper alignment before attempting to print all of your 1096s.
