I have to correct my 1099s, which I filed online with QB due to sub-accounts not categorized as 1099 accounts. How can I categorize that account?

Hi there, @kutikuma.

 

I'm happy to assist you with information on making corrections on the 1099's. If you have E-filed 1099s, it doesn't have the option to make corrections. You can, however, make corrections in a printed copy and send it by mail to the IRS. 

 

Note: If the contractor of the 1099 form wants the information corrected, you'll need to provide the amended return to the contractor and file it again.

 

For more information about correcting a 1099 form that has already been e-filed, check the IRS website.

Thank you for clarifying, laurapoch.

 

To categorize a 1099 account, you need to manually choose it while preparing your forms. In the Categorize payments to contractors (or 1099 vendors) window, you need to select the box so you'll be able to choose the correct expense account you use.

Furthermore, amending a 1099 form will require you to print a new paper form and send it directly to the IRS. You can pull up the 1099 Transaction Detail Report in the Reports menu for your reference in completing its details.

 

To learn more about correcting a 1099 form that has already been e-filed, you can refer to this IRS article: General Information for Certain Information Returns. It contains complete information about the form's filing dates as well as its policies.

 

Please let me know if you have other concerns. I'm just around to help.
