I’ve twice tried to download the 1099 forms from my account page after being informed they were ready, and both times, the only copy that is available is Copy B, which is the recipient’s copy for my own records. It does not include Copy A which must be filed with the IRS and/or the state. When I contacted the ‘help support team’ about not being able to print the correct IRS forms, their response was as if they never read what I wrote. I ask for the time; They tell me how to make a watch. They open the standard response playbook, cut and paste whatever answer they think will handle the situation and then move on to the next help request. This is the response I got:
Thanks for reaching out regrading the tax. I’m happy to look into this.

How that has anything whatsoever to do with what I asked, I have no idea. Is anyone else having a problem with these forms?
