How to run 1099 for a deleted contractor?

It's the same as how we usually prepare 1099s, accounts261. 


If we added the contractor as a vendor, let's check if we select the Track payment for 1099s checkbox. Here's how:

  1. Go to the Expenses menu and then Vendors.
  2. Click the Gear icon above the ACTION column and check the Include inactive box. 
  3. Select the vendor’s name that has a (deleted) status beside the name.
  4. Click Edit.
  5. Check if the the Track payments for 1099 checkbox is selected and then Save

Then, let's prepare the contractors 1099. 

  1. Just click the Workers menu and select Contractors
  2. Click the Prepare 1099s button. Then, Continue your 1099s
  3. Review the details of each section and click Next
  4. In the Review section (step 4), let's check if the contractors we reactivated showed.
  5. If not we can toggle the filter drop-down to the Type of contractors
  6. Click Apply
  7. If it now shows, click Finish Preparing 1099s.
  8. Choose we'll like to file the form. 

We can reactivate the contractor again once done. I've also attached a few articles that will help us prepare 1099s:

Just let me know if you need more help. Keep safe!
