if I enter incorrect data for the Payer for Form 1099 using the QuickBooks efile, how can a go back and change it?


Hello there, f.brownejr,

Let's go back and change the 1099 data of one of your payees so you can submit the correct information to the IRS.

Just a reminder, you need to make sure to correct the payee transactions before editing the 1099.

Here are the steps: 

  1. From the Expenses menu, select Vendors.
  2. Select Prepare 1099s.
  3. Select Let's get started or Continue your 1099s.
  4. Follow the steps to prepare 1099s.
  • Review company details
  • Proper Mapping.
  • Review 1099 information.
  • Confirm and review 1099 contractor and vendor payments.

Once done, print the 1099 copy, then mail the 1099-MISC form to the IRS.

Regardless if you e-file or mail the 1099 form, you need to print a new paper form to amend a 1099. Here's how:

  1. Have the paper forms ready, or order 1099s from us online.
  2. Print the 1099 form from QuickBooks, then use it as a reference in filling out the 1099-MISC form, then select the Corrected checkbox.
  3. Mail the corrected form to the IRS and your contractor.

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.
