Thanks for reaching out to us, paneque1.
It's possible that your employer or client hasn't submitted your 1099-MISC to the IRS yet. Once they file it, you'll get an email when it's ready. Then, go to the Clients menu and select the Forms tab to view your 1099-MISC.
Here are some of the articles for more info:
Leave a comment below if you have more questions. I'll be here!
It's good to have you back here, paneque1. Let's work together and get this sorted out.
We can log in to your QBSE account since the link sent doesn't work, and you can see the Clients menu on your QBSE account. Otherwise, check if your employer sent you an invite. If not, you can contact them to send you an invitation. That way, you can view your 1099 form.
I recommend checking the above articles shared by my colleague to learn more information about them:
Please let me know if I can be of any additional help.
I'm having the same issue. This only seems to be available in Quickbooks online, not QBSE. I got a link from a client to view my 1099 and cant'a seem to open it in QBSE. There is no client menu. I can sort by customer invoices but that doesn't seem to help. Please advise. Thank you.
I've checked with my resources and verify with our engineering team. There are no ongoing reports where the client unable to view 1099 in QuickBooks Self-Employed. It could be that the link sent to you is already expired. You'll need to take note that the link sent to you expires after 24 hours.
In this case, try using this URL when signing in to your account instead: https://selfemployed.intuit.com/login#/contractor/clients. From there, you can view your Client menu on the left pane.
On the other hand, you can also open your QuickBooks account using the incognito mode or private browsing. These are built-in features in the browser that allows you to access websites without storing any data. Google Chrome: Ctrl+Shift+N, Mozilla: Ctrl+Shift+P and Safari: Command + Shift + N.
If you're able to view the link, you'll need to clear your browser's cache to optimize its performance.
You can read this guide about 1099s in QuickBooks Self-Employed. This will give more details on how to access your W-9 info and 1099 form.
Let me know if there's anything else that you need help with. Take care!
Thank you, AileneA. I don't have the Client option on my left pane. It's different from your picture here as it goes straight from Home to Transactions. I tried to attach a screen shot here but inserting an image is not intuitive for me in this program ( it's prompting me to enter, source, description, and dimensions rather than a picture). Everything else in may left pane is the same as yours. I tried going into Invoices but did not find a way to sort by customer in a meaningful way. Please advise. Thank you.
Thanks for getting back to this thread, @julie123456789.
The link that you've received from your email indicates that your clients already submitted your 1099-MISC to the IRS. Once you've successfully opened it, this should automatically route you to the QuickBooks Self-Employed page. This is where you can find the Clients menu that will let you print or view the form.
If you've already performed the troubleshooting steps that were recommended above, I'd suggest getting in touch with our Phone Support Specialist. This way, they can check your QuickBooks Self-Employed and run some tests to determine where might this issue is coming from.
Please also check out our support hours to make sure they'll able to handle your concerns on time.

Thanks for coming back and bringing this one to our attention, julie123456789.
After your client submits the 1099-MISC to the IRS, you'll get an email when it's ready for download. Let's figure out if the browser issue is the link is expired on your email. We can try logging in using an incognito window. Then, access the link sent by your employer. This way, we'll know if it's your regular browser, which causes this unexpected behavior. Follow the shortcut keys, depending on what browser you're using.
Then, try accessing the Client pane on your QuickBooks Self-Employed (QBSE). If it works fine, go back to your main browser and clear the cache. It helps to troubleshoot and increases the performance of your browser. Aside from that, you can open the link in a different browser. If the same thing happens, try contacting your client to re-send the link in the email to sign in to QuickBooks Self-Employed. For more details about how to view the 1099 forms, see the Fill out a W-9 and view your 1099-MISC in QuickBooks Self-Employed article.
