Hello there, gbr

Thanks for reaching out to us here in the Community.

Yes, Big Red Consulting is correct. I’m here to walk you through how to enter all the zeroes on the Tax ID field. This way, you’ll be able to send a 1099 form to your vendor.

Let me show you how:

  1. Go to the Vendors menu at the top, then select Vendor Center.
  2. Right click on the vendor's name, then select Edit Vendor.
  3. Select the Tax Settings tab.
  4. Enter 00-0000000 on the Vendor Tax ID field.
  5. Click OK.

I’ve added screenshots below to guide you through the last three steps.

For more information about filing 1099 forms in QuickBooks Desktop, you can refer to this article: Set Up a 1099 Vendor and Print Forms.

That will do it, gbr. I’d encourage commenting below if you have other payroll concerns, I’ll get back to you as soon as possible. Have a nice day!
