1099 Preparation Problem

I am trying to prepare manual 1099 forms. When I prepare a 1099 summary report two contractors are listed. when I actually go in to prepare the 1099 forms only one contractor shows up. What steps do I need to take in order to print a 1099 for the second contractor. He was paid over $600 and his record is set to track for a 1099.


Hello there, sterlingcog,

Let's select the right expense accounts so you can print your contractors' 1099s.

Choosing the accounts used to pay them will let you view the complete list of your contractors. Here's how:

  1. Go to Workers, then choose Contractors.
  2. Select the Prepare 1099s button.
  3. Click Continue your 1099s.
  4. Depending on your current screen, select either Back or Next until you'll be routed to the Categorize payments to contractors (or 1099 vendors) window.
  5. Select all account you've used in paying contractors. (Please see attached file below)
  6. Click Next to view all contractors paid using the accounts selected.
  7. Hit Next, then select Finish preparing 1099s once done reviewing forms.
  8. Choose either to E-file or to You'll file yourself.

Just a reminder  you'll need to make sure that the date selected is last year (2018) in order to generate the correct form.

For additional information, you can check out this article: Prepare and File 1099s.

After performing the steps above, you'll be able to view and print your contractor's 1099.

Please don't hesitate to leave a comment if you have further concerns about preparing contractors' 1099s in QuickBooks. I'm just around if you need help.

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.
