The Vermont Department of Taxes has joined the Combined Federal/State Filing (CS/SF) Program, which makes e-filing Form(s) 1099, easier and more convenient for businesses. The CF/SF Program was established to simplify the filing of 1099s and other information returns for payers. Through CF/SF, the IRS electronically forwards information returns for payers.
