Question about removing1099 Misc Mapping

UPDATE:  Please disregard this question, as I just figured it out.   I had to go back through the mapping process of 1099-MISC and change the box for that vendor to Omit from 1099 and save.  Once I did that it let me add them to the 1099-NEC list.    Thank you

 

 

While setting up my 1099 vendors, I errored and mapped a vendor to 1099-Misc, when they should of been 1099-NEC.   The message that pops up from QB says: "This account is mapped to 1099-MISC. To map it to form 1099-NEC, remove the mapping from Form 1099-MISC or create another account."    I don't want to create another account as this account should be 1099-NEC and I don't have any 1099-MISC forms to file this year.

 

I have been searching the Q&A to see if anyone else has had this issue with filing and see that there is quite a few, but have not found any answers to my specific issue.  Filing 1099 forms was never this difficult in the past,  and am very surprised that QB has not made this a much smoother process.

 

Thank you for any help you may give....

Question about removing1099 Misc Mapping

I have the same question, but I am unable to change the mapping!

In the "Map Vendor payment accounts" box, there shows the Account name, Account type, Apply payments to this 1099 box-I cannot change the Misc Box 3 to NEC.  The drop down doesn't drop down! I have been working at this all day and cannot figure it out!  Please help!  Thank you

Hey there, @suzymassel17

 

Thanks for joining in on this thread. This isn't the impression I want to leave you with. It's my priority that you're able to get your vendor payment accounts mapped. 

 

Using the Verify and Rebuild tool can help eliminate these types of glitches in your product. Don't worry. It only takes a few easy steps. 

 

Here's how: 

 

Verify

 

  1. Go to the Window menu. 
  2. Select Close all
  3. Choose the File menu. 
  4. Hover over Utilities
  5. Pick Verify Data

 

Rebuild

 

  1. Go through steps 3-4 from above. 
  2. Hit Rebuild data
  3. Click OK when prompted to backup your company file. 
  4. Once the backup finishes, the Rebuild tool will start. 
  5. Press OK when you get the message, "Rebuild has completed." 

 

Afterward, make sure you're updated to the latest payroll update (22101) and try the steps again to map the vendor payments account. Here are a few articles that can provide some helpful information: 

 

 

I hope this helps. If you have any other questions, let me know. I want to make sure you're able to get back to running your business. Wishing you and your business continued success!

Question about removing1099 Misc Mapping

I'm here to help keep the process of removing the account from 1099-MISC to 1099-NEC easy and simple, amyk1.

 

Downloading the latest tax table is a good start when it comes to fixing 1099-related issues in QuickBooks.

 

After that, let's update your QuickBooks Desktop to its latest release to synchronize the changes. Here's how:

 

  1. Click Help at the top menu bar and choose Update QuickBooks Desktop.
  2. Go to the Update Now tab.
  3. Select the Reset Update and click Get Updates to start the download.
  4. Once done. Hit OK and restart QuickBooks.
  5. When prompted, accept the option to install the new release.

Once done, go back to your 1099-NEC wizard and remap the accounts. See the steps below:

 

  1. Click Edit at the top menu bar and choose Preferences.
  2. Scroll down and click Tax: 1099.
  3. Go to the Company Preferences and click here under If you want to map your accounts to boxes on Form 1099-NEC.
  4. Select or map all the accounts you used for your 1099-NEC.
  5. Hit Save & Close.

You can read through this article to know more about the new 1099-NEC form as well as a link on how to file them: Understanding payment categories for the 1099-MISC and 1099-NEC.

 

If you still need help with mapping your 1099-NEC accounts or need further assistance with QuickBooks, please let me know. I'll be here to keep helping. Have a great rest of your day!

Question about removing1099 Misc Mapping

Thank you, this information was very helpful! I followed the steps below but when it leads me back to the mapping vendor accounts page the drop down for that vendor is still "greyed out"/locked from choosing another option. Is there a workaround?

Question about removing1099 Misc Mapping

Hello @amyk1 and @mcint29! Thanks for coming back here for help on this subject. It can definitely be a bit tricky so let me offer some clarification. :)

 

If the expense is already being mapped in Box 1 for 1099 NEC, it won't let you map it again in Box 7 for 1099 MISC. New or separate accounts are necessary for both NEC and MISC.  Here's a great article that explains this: How to modify your chart of accounts for your 1099-MISC and 1099-NEC filing

 

 

If you have any more questions, please don't hesitate to reply to this post. We're all happy to help in any way we can!

Question about removing1099 Misc Mapping

I tried the rebuild and it did not work - it found nothing to rebuild.

So now i can not finish my 1099s (Misc and NEC) until you fix this glitch.

How soon might that be; before the forms are due I hope.

Question about removing1099 Misc Mapping

This did not work for me either.

I do not even have the Click Here Option under the company preferences.

 

Watch out too because it will ask you to download new version and it downloaded a WHOLE NEW COMPANY FILE. (2020)

 

QB please don't release an update with glitches like this - wasting my time!

Hi there, @kathikunkel.

 

I appreciate you for performing the verify and rebuild tool to isolate the issue. I'm here to help with your 1099s so you can process them in no time.

 

For the time being, I would also recommend updating your payroll tax table version and QuickBooks Dekstop to the latest release. These help you get the newest tax table version and keep your software up-to-date with the latest features and fixes.

Moreover, I would also suggest reaching out to our Support Team so a representative can check and review the 1099s further. To contact support:

 

  1. Open QuickBooks.
  2. Go to Help, then select QuickBooks Desktop Help.
  3. Select Contact Us.
  4. Give a brief description of your issue, then select Let's talk, and then choose a way to connect.

I did both updates.

Still unable to remove all dropdowns not needed on the MISC form (I only need 'Rent') and remove Rent from the NEC form.

Question about removing1099 Misc Mapping

Angelyn, I don't want to have to contact you guys, I just want you to fix the glitch. I have done all the steps suggested in this chain of discussion, nothing fixes it and numerous folks are having the same problem. I suggest your programmers stop locking us out of the drop downs as a way to protect us from selecting more than one box, and let us be responsible for our own work.

Question about removing1099 Misc Mapping

It seems that all tech help just repeats the steps without reading our concerns.

We have taken all the actions you suggest.

 

The problem, once again, is that we are unable to change the mapping; the drop down arrow is greyed out.

 

I have been on the phone with tech support for hours only to get a case number #[removed] and still no return call from you as promised two days ago.  

 

I would appreciate a call today and hopefully you have worked out the bug and everyone can get past this problem.

Thank you.

Question about removing1099 Misc Mapping

I have the same issue that an account needs to change from a 1099-MISC to a 1099-NEC.  The solution of adding another account is inappropriate.  Creating extraneous accounts is not a good accounting practice.  It will be confusing in the future.  What do you tell the readers of the financial statements?  QuickBooks couldn't get the IRS forms correct so I had to add another account!

I don't want to create new accounts, I just want to change the ones I have mapped to NEC. change them to MISC. I will not have NEC forms, only MISC. All of my drop down boxes are grayed out
