Beginning this December, users running older versions of Sage 100 Payroll and 1099 are in for changes. In the upcoming Payroll 2.24 and 1099 update, which will be released shortly, our tax reporting partner's software will be at odds with older Sage 100 versions, prior to 6.20.0. As a result, customers running 2018, and 2019 versions need to upgrade to a supported Sage 100 version to access the latest tax form updates and Payroll 2.24 release. Discover all the necessary details about this Sage 100 Payroll compatibility update and its impact on customers by reading on.

We strongly recommend that customers upgrade to a supported ERP system and take advantage of the many new features available. We have developed resources and support tools to make upgrading easier.

Important Note: Customers running unsupported legacy payroll versions do not have the option of a separate payroll installation and are not impacted by this change.

Effective with the release of Payroll 2.24, payroll and 1099 customers on versions 2018 and 2019 will need to be running one of the following versions of Sage 100 to install the latest release of Payroll and 1099 forms:

  • 2023.x
  • 2022.x
  • 2021.x
  • 2020.x
Customers not running a compatible version of Sage 100 will experience a failure of the Payroll update installation and the inability to generate 1099’s, W-2’s or associated tax reporting documents.

Starting with our 2024 Payroll release we will have an n-3 support policy for payroll updates, meaning the update will be compatible with the latest and three prior versions of the Sage 100 software.

Keeping up with updates and utilizing supported software is essential for smooth functionality and uninterrupted access to important features. By upgrading to a supported ERP, users can ensure they can stay up to date with the latest tax form updates without any interruptions. Be sure to contact our support team if you have any questions or concerns regarding this change.
