Accounting and payroll software provider Red Wing Software is introducing a new service that will allow users to file and access W-2s online anytime.

Express eFiling works directly from Red Wing Software payroll products and is provided by Red Wing Software's e-filing partner, Aatrix. To use the new service, users generate W-2 information directly from their Red Wing Software payroll program to an electronic W-2 form. The completed form is then sent electronically to Aatrix, which files the W-2s with the appropriate state and federal agencies.

Once filed, W-2s can be distributed immediately to current and former employees via a secure Web site. Express eFile service is available in four of Red Wing's payroll products: CenterPoint Payroll, Red Wing Payroll, Controller Payroll and Perception Payroll.

"People are becoming increasingly more comfortable with online processing of transactions such as shopping, banking and personal income tax filing, making this a convenient option for them," said Jon Isackson, a product manager at Red Wing Software. "Using this option can save employers significant money, even if they only use it for a portion of their employees."

Express eFiling costs $0.99 per employee. With Red Wing's Complete eFiling service, W-2 forms are automatically e-filed to the appropriate state and employee federal agencies, as well as printed and mailed directly to employees and posted to a secure Web site. That service costs $1.79 per employee. For more information, go to www.redwingsoftware.com.
