How can i revise 1099 totals due to payments outside of Intuit, on an established contractor (not starting new)?

I have a couple of contractors where I need to add outside of Intuit payments,  it i am past the initial set-up portion which is the only place i see to add these. 

Also, I need to make a revision to a figure that I input for a contractor payment outside of Intuit, and don’t see how. 


Glad to see you here in the Community, alissahuse.

I can help you with changing the 1099 totals of your contractor.

To update the total of your 1099, you'll have to record the transaction manually. 

Here's how to add a tax that is currently due:

  1. Go to your Taxes tab, then Payroll Tax and select Pay Taxes.
  2. On the Pay Taxes page, click Record payment for the tax you want to pay.
  3. For the Payment Date, select Other and enter the actual date the payment was made.
  4. Enter the check number, then select Record and print.
  5. If you see the Print Payment Coupon, you can ignore it because you've already made your payment.

Check this Record a tax payment you made outside QuickBooks Online Payroll article for more information about this.

That should do it. If you have any other questions or would like me to clarify anything else about your 1099, let me know. I am always glad to help in any way I can.​ Have a wonderful day.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
