Make Corrections to Regulatory Filings via Aatrix

Use Aatrix to correct and submit regulatory filings ( W-2s, 1099s, ACA, T4s, and T5018s).

Once you generate regulatory filings and submit them to the appropriate taxing authority (via Aatrix), any corrections to those filings must be done directly in Aatrix. Since Aatrix does not send data back to Vista, you may want to manually update your data in Vista to match the corrections you make in Aatrix; however, you cannot submit corrections to Aatrix via Vista.

Note: If you have not completed the filing process in Aatrix (that is, you have not printed or submitted your filings to the taxing authority via Aatrix), you can cancel the filing in Aatrix, correct your data in Vista, and then re-transmit the data to Aatrix. Even though you have corrected your data, the records are still considered Original filings and are flagged accordingly.
