I need to change Box 7 Non-employee compensation number on a Form 1099-Misc 2018 Income. Entered an incorrect amount. How and where do I go to make this correction.

Change number in box 7 non-employee compensation of Miscellaneous Income 1099


Let's make sure box 7 is showing a correct amount, Jaxmillion.

If the total amount in each 1099 boxes for vendor doesn't meet or exceed a specific threshold amount, then 1099 is required.

Make sure the total amounts exceed the thresholds so it shows the correct amount. Then, ensure to select the correct Tax Year in the Preview 1099.

Next, all accounts used for 1099-eligible payments must be mapped correctly to the 1099 boxes by going to Step 4 of Prepare 1099's. If a vendor is not listed in step 4, then follow the steps below:

  1. Click the "funnel" icon at the top left of the page.
  2. Change Type of contractors to 1099 contractors below the threshold
  3. Select the Apply button. 
This will show the vendors who don't have sufficient payment amounts to require a 1099. Please see this article for additional 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.
