Yes, In TaxBandits, you can enable online access for W-2s and 1099s even after transmitting them to the IRS/SSA. However, please remember that to enable online access, the recipient must have an email address. 

To enable Online Access after transmitting tax forms to IRS/SSA, follow the steps below:

  • Sign in to your TaxBandits account.
  • From the home dashboard, click Distribution Center.

  • Use filters to select the Tax year, Form type, Business Name, and form distribution status. Once selected, click "Go". The businesses in your account will be displayed based on the filters you applied.  

  • Select Online Access next to the business that you've filed W-2/1099 forms

  • All the recipients under the business will be displayed. Select the recipients and click Give Online Access. Note: To enable online access, the recipient must have an email address. If there is no email address for any recipient, click the + icon under the Email Address and provide the recipient's email address.

  • Review your order and click Complete Your Order to make the payment. Once the payment has been made, an email will be sent to the recipient to give their consent to access the forms online.

After the recipient signs the consent through a secure portal, an email will be sent to the recipient to view their transmitted forms online. Please note that when you enable Online Access for a recipient, all forms filed for them will be available online, including the previously filed ones.
