How can edit the dollar figure in box 7 for a contractor who was in the system?

There is an incorrect amount if box 7 of my contractor 1099. I would like to edit and fix the figures. Can you help?


Thanks for reaching out to us for assistance, neftaliem,

Let me get the help you need to ensure that the amount for Box 7 in 1099 is correct.

To start with, let’s check the account mapping for vendor payments in the 1099 Wizard.

Here’s what you’ll need to do:

  1. Click Workers from the left navigation menu.
  2. Go to Contractors tab and click on Prepare 1099s button.
  3. If this is your first time using the 1099 Wizard, click the "Let's get started" button. Otherwise, click on the "Continue your 1099s" button. 
  4. You'll see the Review your company info page first. Confirm your details and click Next
  5. The next page is where you can check the account mapping.

From there, you can check which accounts are used by the vendor’s transactions and make sure these are mapped properly to 1099.

I’m attaching a great resource that you can check on for more detailed information: Common Causes for Incorrect Amounts on 1099s.

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.
