How do I find my Transmitter Control Code from the filing of 1099s I just completed? I spelled a contractor's name wrong.

Transmitter Control Code

Hello there, @dproberto.

 

The Transmitter Control Code (TCC) is an identifier that the IRS uses to distinguish different electronic filing companies. It's necessary when you need to file for a correction.

 

Getting a TCC depends on how you file your 1099 forms. Based on your description of the issue, it seems that you've used our 1099 e-service through QuickBooks Online (QBO) in completing this task. With this, you can use Intuit's TCC in filing for a correction. To do this, I'd recommend contacting our Customer Care team. They can securely pull up your account and provide you the code.

 

In case you want to talk to one of our representatives, you need to request a callback. You'll first have to check out our support hours to ensure we can assist you on time. Here's how:

  1. Go to the Help menu.
  2. Choose Contact Us
  3. Enter your specific concern in the What can we help you with? field. 
  4. Click Let's talk
  5. Select Get a callback. 
  6. Enter your contact details. 
  7. Click Confirm my call

 

I've attached a screenshot below for your reference.

 

In the meantime, I'm adding this article to learn more about 1099s: Common questions about 1099s. It answers the most frequently asked questions regarding the form and provides all the necessary related links.

 

Let me know how it goes in the comments below. If you have other 1099 concerns, I'm just around to help. Take care always.

This is a really good response. I just had one quick question that is kind of related to this. If I filed through intuit, I don't need to independently setup a TCC right? Instead Intuit uses its TCC to submit the 1099s. Is that a correct reading of the situation?

You're correct, g-ram. 

 

Once you filed through Intuit, QuickBooks will set it up for you and uses its TCC to submit the form. The TCC is given to the company or Registered Agent who originally files the return, in this case QuickBooks/Intuit.  

 

Check this article as reference: Become an Authorized e-file Provider.

 

Additionally. I'm adding this article to learn more about preparing and filing 1099: Prepare and file 1099s

 

I'd be glad hearing from you soon, please let me know if you need further assistance. Have a great day!

Hello,

Because I could not find any place/information beside this article. The TurboTax customer service could not find anything near and 1st time hanged up, 2nd time sent me following email(after 30 mins on the phone).

Here's what they told me: 

"Hi, I found out There is no Transmitter Control Code when you e-file a tax return with TurboTax. TurboTax is not a paid tax preparer. Your tax return is self-prepared. I found a link for you from quick books that might help you."

 

Did you have a success to find a TCC? I need to correct the TIN from 2020 1099-NEC.

Thank you.

I appreciate your effort in reaching out in the Community, @sadullaevd.

 

As stated by my peer above, getting a Transmitter Control Code (TCC) depends on how you file your 1099 forms.

 

Since the TurboTax support mentioned that your tax return is self-prepared, I suggest working with IRS. You’ll need to write a letter containing your Tax1099 reference # and Orig # from your filing to request your TCC number. See this link to learn more: Tax1099 guide.
 
To make corrections to your 1099 forms after you e-filed them, you can use this article as a reference: Correct or change 1099s in QuickBooks.

 

Don't hold back to drop a comment below if you need further assistance with your 1099 forms. We’re always here to help. Take care!

Thank you for the clarification. Yes, I self prepared and e-filed from online QEF. After reading your reply, I understand i'll have to apply for TCC on my own. However, where would I  locate "Tax1099 reference # and Orig #" you referred? I e-filed on Intuit QEF website.

Thanks for getting back to us, sadullaevd.

 

Since you've electronically filed your 1099 forms, I'd suggest reaching out to Intuit ProConnect team. One of our agents there can verify your account and guide you on how you can get the reference number.

 

You can use this link to get in touch with them: ProConnect Community.

 

I've also added this screenshot for more information about Intuit QEF: Using Intuit Quick Employer Forms Accountant to create 1099s and W-2s.

 

I'll be around if there's anything that I can help with. Keep safe!

We don't want you to experience this inconvenience, sadullaevd.

 

I'll make sure you're able to find and get the Transmitter Control Code (TCC) to correct an error on your 1099s.

 

As mentioned by my colleague above, getting a TCC depends on how you file your 1099 forms. If you're trying to file the form outside QuickBooks with Intuit's TCC, you must obtain your own TCC from the IRS.

 

However, if you file it electronically using QuickBooks, you can use Intuit's TCC. To get the code, I'd recommend contacting our Customer Care Team. They can securely pull up your account and provide the code privately.

 

Also, to answer the most commonly asked questions about preparing 1099 forms, I'd recommend checking out this article: Get answers to your 1099 questions.

 

Let me know if you have other payroll concerns and questions about 1099s in QBO. Don't hesitate to comment below, and I'll gladly help. Take care always.

I am also in need of a Transmitter Control Code to correct a 1099 that was e-filed through QuickBooks. I just got off the phone with QuickBooks Customer Care and they told me that they do not a have a TCC and to contact the IRS to get a code. How did QuickBooks e-file my 1099s without one? The wait time to get assigned one from the IRS is up to 45 days so I would really appreciate some assistance with this.

Thank you!

Thanks for joining this thread, @capsga. I'm here to give information about your concern.

 

As per the previous replies in this thread, getting your Transmitter Control Code (TCC) varies on how you file your 1099 forms. If you file manually or outside QuickBooks Online (QBO), you must obtain your own TCC. Since you've mentioned that you e-filed the form, you can use Intuit's TCC. To get this, I'd recommend reaching out to our QBO support team. They can pull up your account in a secure place and provide you with the code. For more information, feel free to visit this article: Transmitter Control Code (TCC).

 

Here's how to contact them:

  1. In your QBO program, select the Help menu.
  2. Go to the Assistant tab.
  3. Enter your concern. Example: Need to get a Transmitter Control Code.
  4. Next, type Talk to a human.
  5. Then, choose either Get a callback or Start a chat.

 

You can also check our support hour's page to ensure you'll be assisted immediately. 

 

In QBO, running payroll reports is easy. This will help you get brief details of your employee information, company finances, and payroll tax data. 

 

Leave a comment below if you have any other QuickBooks concerns. I'm just around the corner to help. Have a great week ahead.
