The 1099 report for contractors is not showing up for all contractors. There are about 28 but only 1 shows up in the 1099 report. It seems like it's a QBs online error

Re: The 1099 report for contractors is not showing up for all contractors. There are about 28 but...

Let's get all your contractors show on your 1099 report, andyboyd3d.

 

There are reasons why a contractor won't show on the report, and we'll use them to guide you in fixing this.

 

First, you'll want to check if the Track payments for 1099 box is ticked in their profile.

 

 

Second, if you paid your contractors with a credit card, debit card, gift card or PayPal through your Payroll product account, you'll want to edit those transactions and use a different method like check or expense.

 

Third, if the accounts you used on your vendor transactions are not mapped for 1099, then the transactions will not show on the report. This includes the accounts you used on your items. Here's how to map them:

  1. Go to Expenses and click the Prepare 1099's button in the upper right-hand corner.
  2. Set up your company information and click Next.
  3. Place a checkmark in Box 7: Nonemployee Compensation checkbox.
  4. In the drop list, select all the accounts you used in all your contractor transactions.
  5. Click Next and click on Finish Later to finish the setup.

 

You can run your 1099 report after checking and correcting your records.

Hi I'm having the same exact issue.  #1 and #3 is already setup correctly.  For #2 I only paid one person with an actual check and he was the only one that showed.  I have 3 others that I paid with a debit card and your state to change it but how exactly do you mean?  Could you provide an example?  I looked at the one that was displayed and the only difference is I input a check# vs DBT.  I attached a screenshot of the DBT transaction and how it looks recorded.  Can you help?

Re: The 1099 report for contractors is not showing up for all contractors. There are about 28 but...

Thank you for the screenshot, bumpnplay.

 

QBO automatically tracks the payment types for you. This means that the 1099 MISC form will only include cash, check, EFT, ACH, and direct deposit payments. Here's an article for more details about why some contractors are missing from the 1099 vendors list.

 

You can create a separate expense transaction to record the payment. This is to check if the contractor will show on the 1099 form.

 

Here's how:

  1. Click the Plus icon.
  2. Under Vendors, select Expense.
  3. Enter the details of the transactions.
  4. Ensure that the transactions don't indicate a DBT. If they do, you'll have to change it to EFT
  5. Click Save and close.

If you get the same result, I'd suggest giving us a call. Here's how to get our contact number:

  1. Go to this link https://help.quickbooks.intuit.com/en_US/contact.
  2. Select QuickBooks Online.
  3. Click the 1099 support topic.
  4. Scroll down and click the Get Phone Number button.

I'll be here if you need anything else.

Re: The 1099 report for contractors is not showing up for all contractors. There are about 28 but...

Good afternoon, 

All of this information is somewhat helpful; however, does not resolve the issue.  Is Quickbooks online having a "glitch" in their system?  Our contractor is marked for 1099, shows up in the list of Contractors; however, when I hit Prepare 1099 they are not listed.  The contractor not showing up was paid is the excess of $30,000, is marked and was provided a 1099 last year with no change in his account.   I would appreciate your insight and help.  I tried calling Quickbooks online and there was an hour wait, which tells me that I'm not the only one with this issue and this might very well be a Quickbooks issue and not an issue on the client end.    I look forward to your response.  Thank you for your time.

Re: The 1099 report for contractors is not showing up for all contractors. There are about 28 but...

Let's make sure that your contractor's payments are associated with a box from the 1099 form, Melinda.

 

This can be the reason why you their not listed when preparing their 1099. I've got the steps on how to verify their details:

  1. Go to the Workers menu and select Contractors. Or select Expenses and then Vendors.
  2. Select Prepare 1099s and then Let’s get started.
  3. Make sure your company name and address, and your tax ID are correct.
  4. Select the boxes (1-14) that represent the type of payments made to all of your contractors this year.
  5. Then select boxes that represent the expense accounts where you track the payments. Select Next.
  6. Verify that all of your contractors show up and their personal info and email addresses are correct.
  7. Review the payment totals for each box you selected in step 5.
  8. Select Finish preparing 1099s.
  9. Select Go to 1099 E-File Service to e-file your 1099s.

I'm just around if you still have other concerns. Thank you!

Re: The 1099 report for contractors is not showing up for all contractors. There are about 28 but...

Thanks for joining the thread, @ked546. I'd be happy to lend a hand with generating the 1099's.

 

Just to clarify, is the screen and/or a button not being responsive on the screen? If so, I recommend some browser troubleshooting since it can help to clear up unexpected behavior. You can locate additional information on this process in the following link: Troubleshooting browser problems.

 

Additionally, contractors will only appear if the expense account associated with their transactions is selected in Step 2: Categorize payments to contractors. So a check to Amy's Oil using the expense account Fuel will not be tracked for a 1099, unless the account is chosen. 

 

 

I suggest double-checking that the expense accounts used to pay the vendor are selected in Step 2. For other steps, I recommend this resource: 1099 Troubleshooting.

 

Please let me know how it goes, as I want to ensure that the forms are generated for you. Wishing you well.

You can always go back where you left off, ked546.

 

Just click the Continue your 1009s button. From there , you can click the Back button and go back to the step you want to review.

 

Once you've reviewed everything, filing the 1099 forms will be a breeze.

 

Get back to is if you require further assistance. Have a great day!

Re: The 1099 report for contractors is not showing up for all contractors. There are about 28 but...

I have one vendor, paid by check in excess of $600. The vendor shows up in the vendor list, the correct accounts are chosen in the account distribution screen, however, QBO is telling me there are no vendors that qualify for a 1099. It appears there is an inherent processing problem. I have used this for years for all of my clients and have never encountered this.

Re: The 1099 report for contractors is not showing up for all contractors. There are about 28 but...

Hi there, gp1231.

 

Thanks for your checking the correct accounts and for verifying the year-to-date totals for your vendors.

 

Did you pay them via credit card? If you used the Credit Card method on their transactions, they will not show up when you run the 1099-Misc form because they are reported to a 1099-K form.

 

You can check the transaction list of the vendor and add the Method column to it to see if you see a credit card method. If there is, you can change it to a different method.

 

Please get back to us if you need more help with your 1099 form.

Re: The 1099 report for contractors is not showing up for all contractors. There are about 28 but...

I have quickbooks online (accountant version) and the screen shot and instructions don't match what I have available. For me to access the "Prepare 1099's"  it is actually on the left hand side under "Workers" and then "Contractors". 

 

Why does the 1099 report not include the vendor address or give the customization option to include the address?

Re: The 1099 report for contractors is not showing up for all contractors. There are about 28 but...

Great to have you back in the Community @OfficeMgr3325.

 

I can assist you with information on the 1099 report in QuickBooks Online. Let's follow these steps to create the statement that you need: 

  1. From the Expenses menu, select Vendors.
  2. Select Prepare 1099s.
  3. Choose Let's get started or Continue your 1099s.
  4. Follow the steps to prepare 1099s. The report you're looking for is on "Step 4: Review - Check that the payments add up."

By default, the list filters to show only vendors that meet the $600 threshold.

The All Payments column displays the total of a vendor's payments for the year. Select the dollar amount in the All Payments column to open the report.

 

Tip: If a vendor is missing from the list, you can change the filter to find them.

  1. Above the Contractor column, select the Filter icon.
  2. From the Type of contractors drop-down menu, select 1099 contractors below threshold or Contractors not marked for 1099.

I have the same issue.  I called customer support and have tried everything that is in these replies and nothing has worked.  I guess I will have to add up all the check stubbs for my contractors and enter the information into TurboTax for Home and Business and e file it to the IRS.

I am having the same issue. I have 23 contractors to send 1099's to but 11 show up when I attempt to process the 1099's. I viewed and tried several suggestions from the forum and tried to actually contact a human from Intuit by online with no luck.

-All of the contractors track 1099's boxes are checked

-All have been paid by check and meet the threshold

-The account used to pay them is selected in the dropdown for box 7: Non-employee compensation

-They appear and are checked in green on the vendor list when I select to add them

-None of the "HELP" links address anything other than the obvious above

-My account can't even figure it out and she has a degree in accounting

I did all of these steps. It lists all contractors needed when setting up 1099’s but when I select the pay/e-file button, they don’t show up in the overview.

Re: The 1099 report for contractors is not showing up for all contractors. There are about 28 but...

When I select accounts to map, the account list omits accounts set up as accounts payable so I can't map payments to accounts payable for 1099 purposes. I am using QuickBooks Online.

QuickBooks Team

Re: The 1099 report for contractors is not showing up for all contractors. There are about 28 but...

Let me explain about 1099 mapping, Ralphd1.


You're unable to select Accounts Payable. You can select the accounts you used when entering the bill or paying the vendor. 

 

Once done mapping the accounts or categorizing the payments, you can now go ahead and file the 1099 form.

 

Reach out to us if you have additional questions. Just drop a comment below and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.

It's issues like this that make me want to quit using Quickbooks altogether. No one to call. spend hours and hours going through the 'Community' and coming up, empty.  I pay a good sum of money every month to use this software and when I have a question and/or a problem I get zip. 

 

Preparing 1099's 

Company information- Correct

Accounts- Box 7 is checked ( non employee compensation) sub box is the same.

Review your Contractors information- All is Correct 

Check that the payments add up-  Nothing is there! "there are no vendors who match this criteria"

 

in the thread below from 'Adrian_A'  in step 7 he/she doesn't expound on what to do if it's blank.
