News Office Field Order Support About Us

Version 2015.02 Now Available

January 9, 2015 - Farm Works Software® has released version 2015.02 of the Office software.

Enhancements include:

  • Updated Support for Livestock (Accounting) – resolved an issue where entering a livestock transaction in Accounting and then going to the Stock program would generate an error.
  • Support for Electronic Submission of W-2 & 1099 Data (Accounting)– your W-2 and 1099 forms in Farm Works can now be submitted electronically to the IRS. In addition, this functionality gives you the ability to have your W-2s printed and mailed to your employees/vendors.
  • Support for 2014 Federal Tax Forms (W-2, W-3, 1099-Misc and 1096)
  • Support for 2014 Federal, FICA, and Medicare Tax Withholding
  • Retired Crops Fix for CFX-750 Display (Mapping) – the Write Job Data option for the Trimble CFX-750™ display will no longer write out retired crops, so you can ensure your up-to-date crop list isn’t restricted by the display’s 20 crop limit.
  • Improved VRA Map for Print (Mapping) – when printing a VRA map the summary now includes the area applied (which excludes areas with zero rates), and the minimum, average, and maximum rate applied.
  • Updated Support for Calculating Length and Area (Mapping) – enhancements for the Length and Area attributes so they will automatically calculate the length of new lines and the size of new areas.
  • Crop Summary Report Updated for FSA Reporting (Mapping) – the Crop Summary Report now includes an option to "Group by FSA Info".  When you select this option you'll get sub-totals for FSA Farms, Tracts and Fields. This provides information to better match with FSA reporting.
  • Support for Importing Trimble PurePixel & SIS data (Mapping) – added new import functionality for reading PurePixel™ or Soil Information System™ (SIS) data via Read Job Data.
  • Improvements to Tracking Replant Dates & Areas (Mapping) – there is now a Job Type for "Planting - Replant". When you replant a field you can use this for the Job Type. The Crop Summary Report and Crop Insurance Submission will include the replant date and area.
  • Updated Synchronization for Farm Works Mobile Data (Mapping) – updated the synchronization of Farm Works Mobile data so the data synchronizes with the project that it was created with.

Customers of the Office software who are subscribed to the Update Service Plan (USP) will automatically receive these features by selecting “Check for Updates" located under the Help menu.  Another option is to use the download link:

Save 10% on E-Filing W2s & 1099s

December 2, 2014 - Do you enjoy printing and mailing W-2s, W-3s, 1096s, and 1099s for your farm? Or would you rather be in the shop working on farm machinery?  Tax form preparation can be time consuming and expensive.  A new feature will be available in Farm Works™ Accounting software that will allow you to upload your data electronically to the IRS, Social Security Administration, and state agencies.  This service will benefit farms of all sizes with anywhere from one employee (or 1099 vendor) to hundreds of employees (or 1099 vendors).  The service also gives you the ability to have forms printed and mailed to your employees and/or vendors, eliminating the need to print W-2s, W-3s, 1096s, and 1099s on your farm.

Advantages of e-filing:

  • Everything is done online, eliminating the need for paper forms.
  • You pay only for the number of forms you file (even if it’s just one).
  • Save labor costs of printing, mailing and manually submitting forms.
  • Check the status of your federal and state filings and you will receive confirmation emails when a status changes.
  • Forms submitted by 8:00pm (EST) on February 2nd are guaranteed to be postmarked that day.
  • Payer copies of forms submitted are formatted in PDF and provided free with the purchase of any service.
