Differences between blank and pre-printed forms
Blank forms are forms that are printed on blank printer paper. W-2 and 1095 forms can be filed to the SSA and IRS on blank paper.
Pre-printed forms are forms that are printed on paper that already contains the form image. When choosing the pre-printed form type through Yearli, only the information in the fields will be printed; the form image itself will not print when printing pre-printed forms. The IRS requires that Copy A of 1099 forms and the 1096 be filed to the IRS on pre-printed paper.
