Re: accidentally paid employee as vendor

Welcome to the Community, @melijune.

 

Thank you for posting! I am the right person to help you with your 1099 concern.

 

You will have to add a vendor in your QuickBooks for you to have the option to run the 1099 form. The paychecks under the employee name should be deleted since they're not necessary. Next, create checks for the amounts to reflect on the form.

 

If you're using QuickBooks Desktop, you have to delete the paychecks:

  1. Open the paycheck.
  2. Click the Delete icon.
  3. Follow the same steps to remove them all in QuickBooks.

 

Here's how to add a vendor:

  1. Click the Vendors menu.
  2. Choose Vendor Center.
  3. Click New Vendor.
  4. Make sure to enter all the necessary information.
  5. Go to the Tax Settings tab, put a check mark on Vendors eligible for 1099.
  6. Click OK.

 

Here's how to create a check:

  1. Click Banking.
  2. Choose Write Checks.
  3. Enter the information.
  4. Click Save & Close.

Once done, you're all set to pull up the 1099 form.

 

On the other hand, if you're using QuickBooks Online, you will have to call our QBO Payroll phone agents to ask for help in deleting/removing the employee's paycheck. Then, set up the vendor and enter the checks. For the detailed instruction, please refer to the article below.

That should correct your recordings and help you run the 1099 form, melijune

 

Let me know if there's anything else you need. I'm still here to help you further. Wishing you and your business continued success!
