How can I just e-file one additional single 1099 through QBOnline?

i have already e-filed 1099s, but just discovered one more that needs to be prepared and filed.  How do I file just this one in QBOnline, without re-filing all of them?


Hello there, accounting,

I can help you with this.

To e-file an additional 1099 form through QuickBooks Online (QBO), you'll have to go over from the start. You'll only need to select the one that you'll be filing this time.

Here are the steps:

  1. On the left panel, click Expenses.
  2. Choose Vendors.
  3. From the Vendors page, click the Prepare 1099s button.
  4. Click the Continue your 1099s button.
  5. Follow the instructions in preparing the form. Make sure that the name of the contractor is included.

Once you click the E-file for me button, another window will open. Then, from the 1099 E-File Service page, you can unchecked the other contractors. (Please see attached screenshot below)

That'll get you on track, accounting.

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.
