I am preparing and e-filing 1099 MISC and NECS through QBO for the first time. Do I need to also register to e-file with the IRS?

I have some information about e-filing 1099 in QBO, @studio-rawls-gma.

 

You'll need to enroll in E-File and Pay first so you can process electronic services in QBO. For new sign-ups, E-File & Pay setup has also been added to the tax setup flow. Also, the 1099 E-file service is only for federal 1099-MISC and 1099-NEC filings. If you need to file in your state, you may contact your state agency for more information and learn how to file.

 

To turn on electronic services:

 

  1. Go to the Gear icon at the top.
  2. Select Payroll Settings.
  3. In the Taxes, tick E-File and E-Pay.
  4. Choose Federal taxes and your state. If you haven't connected your bank account yet, enter the bank account info to proceed with the connection. See Connect your bank to online payroll for assistance.
  5. Tap E-sign to sign your documents. You can choose to print and sign the documents but make sure to contact us to send it.
  6. If you select E-sign, you'll go through a series of questions to complete and pass. If you fail, you'll be asked to print, sign, and send the documents.

 

Once authorization forms have been received and bank info has been verified, we'll process the enrollment. You'll receive an email as soon as your payroll account is active for E-File & Pay.

 

After that, you can now E-file your 1099-MISC and 1099-NEC in QuickBooks. Please refer to this article for the step-by-step guide: Create and file 1099s using QuickBooks Online.

 

In case you need help with other tasks in QBO, click this link to go to our general payroll topics with articles.

 

Please get back to me if you still have questions or concerns. I'm more than happy to answer them for you. Take care and stay safe.
