How do you change a vendor amount on a 1099?

I need to add an additional amount to a 1099 vendor. I took over the bookkeeping mid year so the transactions prior to that are not included in the 1099. 


Good day, Kim23.

Welcome to the Community. I'm here to share some information about adding historical payments for vendors.

Editing the amount on the 1099 Form is currently unavailable. As a workaround, you can write checks to add historical payments for vendors.

Here's how:

  1. Go to Banking.
  2. Select Write Checks.
  3. Choose an account in the Bank Account drop down.
  4. Select a payee and set the date.
  5. Enter necessary information.
  6. Once you're done, click on Save & Close.

I've attached some screenshots to help you with the process. 

Since adding historical payments affect your bank balance, I suggest consulting an accountant in regards to the best way to handle your recorded transactions.

Just in case, I'm sharing some articles about 1099: 

That should do it. Please let me know if you have further questions. I'm always here to help. 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.
