Hello there, maria,

I'm here to help you get a 1099 copy for your contractor so he can file his tax return for 2017.

Once the 2017 transactions already entered in the system, then you're now ready to follow these steps to prepare the 1099:

  1. Go to the Workers menu, then choose Contractor.
  2. Select Prepare 1099s.
  3. Click Let's get started.
  4. Check your company details, then click Next to proceed.
  5. Map the right 1099 information by marking the box for the type of payments available. 
  6. Select the expense accounts use for the payments, then select Next.
  7. Review 1099 information.
  8. Once you reach the Check that the payments add up window, you need to make sure to filter year 2017. (Please refer to the screenshot below)
  9. Confirm and review 1099 contractor and vendor payments.
  10. Select manually submit so you can print the 1099 copy.

You're going to provide the 1099 copy to the contractor and let him use it as a reference in filing his Schedule C.

With regards to the late fees, I'd recommend contacting the IRS so you'll be guided accordingly.

For the detailed steps and visual reference in creating a 1099 copy, you can refer to this article: Prepare and File 1099s using QuickBooks Online

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.
