When I am running 1099's there is a contractor that has historical payments that is not for 2018. How do you edit that historical information?


Hi there, hollysr,

Let's get you to our Payroll Specialists who can edit and correct your historical information.

You need to reach out to our Payroll Support team for payroll correction if the contractor payments were created through direct deposit. This way, you can ask them to negate the payment so you can re-create it manually in the system.

On the other hand, you’ll delete and re-create the payment if you’ve manually paid your contractor.

If you need to e-file your 1099 through Intuit Online Payroll (IOP), I'd be glad to provide you the steps on how to do it. 

Here' how:

  1. Click Taxes & Forms, then 1099.
  2. Click the Add a column drop-down menu to add entry fields for other 1099 boxes.
  3. Enter additional amounts.
  4. Click the Edit links to modify or delete contractors. 
  5. Click Add to add new contractors for this filing year, then select Continue.
  6. Enter your credit card information for billing, then click Approved.
  7. Select Print for Contractors for their copy or Print Your Records for your copy.
  8. Click SUBMIT to e-file the forms to the IRS.

For the screenshots and detailed steps, you can go through this article: E-File a 1099-MISC.

That will answer your concern today.

Please let me know how the call goes by leaving a comment below or if you need further assistance filing your return. I'll get back you whenever you need my 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.
