Overall Satisfaction with ONESOURCE

Our organization utilizes ONESOURCE for a variety of tax reporting functions. The main focus area where I have used ONESOURCE is for tax information reporting, specifically relating to 1099-K and 1099-MISC reporting.
  • The ability to recall data from prior years is great. We constantly get requests to pull prior year forms and the system allows us to complete these requests efficiently.
  • The ability to track tax information events (such as print filing dates, b-notices, and recipient responses) is a huge benefit of ONESOURCE and is one of the main reasons we utilize their service over that of their competitors.
  • ONESOURCE customer service is highly responsive. One of the huge benefits of working with ONESOURCE is the assigned CES who answers any & all questions relating to not only the software itself, but the underlying tax requirements and due dates, etc.
  • ONESOURCE absolutely needs to restore their TIN Matching feature. Not having a TIN Matching feature is huge and needs to be addressed immediately.
  • The software interface itself is outdated and clunky. It is way behind in terms of user-friendliness and convenience. Additionally, it is only compatible with Internet Explorer. ONESOURCE is literally the only reason I would ever access Internet Explorer which is notably slower and more prone to freezing than Google Chrome or Safari. A good portion of our business uses Macs which means they are SOL on accessing ONESOURCE.
  • The ability to look at multiple tax years for a single recipient would be huge. Currently, if a recipient asks us to pull three years of data, this means three different searches within each year's ONESOURCE instance. It's tedious and could be improved.
  • ONESOURCE has allowed us to better serve our recipients from an experience/support aspect and that has been a great benefit.
  • The audit trail created through the ONESOURCE information tax reporting platform has alleviated a great deal of stress when it comes to document retention.
ONESOURCE blows Sovos out of the water. would take ONESOURCE 10 out of 10 times. The two biggest differentiators are the friendliness and helpfulness of customer support and the overall capabilities of the software.
The capabilities of the software are great compared to other tax information reporting softwares in the market, but overall the system is outdated and not intuitive. There are major improvement areas but all in all, they get the job done.
