How do you align the 1099 and 1096 forms when printing in Quickbooks desktop?

Glad to see you again, @Kim23.


Printing 1099 and 1096 is a straightforward process once you get the hang of it. Make sure your pre-printed forms are ready so we can start.


Open the 1099 Wizard and follow the prompt until you reach the Choose a filing method window. Follow the steps below to align and print the forms:

  1. Click the Print 1099s button.
  2. Select the range (of date) the 1099s were paid from and tap OK.
  3. Pick the form 1099(s) you wish to print and choose the Preview 1099 button.
  4. If the alignment is still incorrrect, go to the File menu at the top-left corner and select Printer Setup.
  5. Close the 1099s/1096 from the list in Form Name.
  6. Choose the Align button and adjust alignment as needed.
  7. Hit OK twice to save the changes.
  8. You can pick which of the two forms to print first, either click Print 1099 or Print 1096

Take a look at this article for more information: Print 1099 forms.

 

You can also check out the Make fine alignment adjustments section of this link for details on printer setup: Align, checks, invoices, and other forms for continuous-feed (dot matrix) printers.

Thank you! I finally was able to get things figured out. Some how my default PDF viewer had been changed to something other than Adobe. Once I fixed that, I was able to adjust the alignment in the printing process and print my forms.
