Yes. You can use the TIN masking option available in the Distribution Center to mask the recipient TINs and view 1099s more securely. You can also download copies of 1099 with masked TINs from the Printer Center. Once downloaded, you can print and mail the copies to your recipients. Masking TINs is a method for preventing identity theft.
