Issuers of Annual Tax Documents Should Provide
Both PDF and FDX JSON Download

Issuers of annual tax documents (e.g. 1099, K-1, W-2) can make tax preparation simpler for document recipients by offering download in both human and computer readable formats.

In addition to providing download of annual tax documents in human-readable form (PDF), add download of the tax document data as FDX JSON that tax software can consume. For example, your website might have a page that looks like this:


Your Tax Documents for Tax Year 2020

Document Download
For Your Records
For Tax Software
1099-R   FDX JSON  


Contact us for resources or custom programming to add this feature to your website. If you do not need code for all 51 tax forms, we can adjust the price of the SDK or Docker image seen below.
