How do I confirm the mapping of accounts to the 1099 box 7?

It looks like you're getting ready to file your 1099s, patti-montemer. Let me help you check your setup. 

 

You can check the account mapping for vendor payments in the 1099 Wizard. Here's how: 

 

  1. Go to Expenses and click Vendors at the top. 
  2. Click on Prepare 1099s at the top-right corner. 
  3. If this is your first time using the 1099 Wizard, click the "Let's get started" button. Otherwise, click on the "Continue your 1099s" button. 
  4. You'll see the Review your company info page first. Confirm your details and click Next
  5. The next page is where you can check the account mapping. I got you a screenshot below.

For Quickbooks Online users!

It was a very weird answer.  When you get to the form where there are no vendors displayed, you need to click the back button twice

- the first time gets you to a list of vendors where you can edit and click the 1099 eligible box. 

- The second gets you to the form where you can designate the accounts to be included when calculating 1099 payments.  Once you click all of the accounts that were used to categorize 1099 payments, your vendors will appear.

There isn't a way to set this up when entering vendor information in QB initially?  You can only get this when preparing 1099's?  I was hoping there's a way to map to box 7 when I run the summary or detailed reports...

 

When I run my reports (summary OR detailed) for vendor/1099, it lists the monies paid to them in "uncategorized" column and leave the "Box 7:  Nonemployee Compensation" column empty.  I'm trying to figure out how to make it populate monies paid in the box 7 column.

When you set-up the vendor initially, you can mark that they should receive a 1099.  While in the vendor set-up, click the "tax settings" tab and mark the box.  

 

To select / map your 1099 accounts, go to Edit / Preferences / Tax: 1099.  On the Company Preferences, click the "click here" where it talks about mapping your accounts.  You can go through the listing there to indicate by account where on a 1099, if at all, the transactions should be recorded.  Once these are set, your uncategorized column should clear-up.

Hello there, XtremeKleaning.

 

I agree with JGibbsRVA. To make sure your vendor receives 1099, you can set this up in QuickBooks Online (QBO). Below are the instructions on how to do it:

 

  1. Go to Expense.
  2. Choose Vendors.
  3. Select the name of the vendor and click Edit.
  4. Check the box for Track payments for 1099.
  5. Click Save.

 

Also, whatever information shown in your box 7 depends on how you map the accounts when preparing the 1099 form. You can follow the steps shared by my colleague Jill_P to be  guided on how to map the accounts to show it in box 7.

 

To become more familiar with the boxes on the form 1099, you can have these article handy: 

Learn more about the whole process of preparing your 1099s in QuickBooks Online through this article: Prepare and file 1099s.

 

You can always get back to me if  you have follow-up questions. I'm just a comment away. Have a good one.
