Once again QB's doesn't accomodate an APO/FPO address. I keep running into this problem. Setting up 1099 E-File service - the address drop down menu does not include FPO.

Hi dijonna-wagner.

 

QuickBooks Online supports the E-File Service only within 50 States in the US. The APO and FPO are considered as foreign addresses.

 

You might want to check this article about the 1099 E-File Service. It has complete information about the 1099 e-file service.

 

Don't hesitate to post here again for your other concerns. Have a good one!

"APO and FPO are considered as foreign addresses" - the question is WHY?  Absent any reasonable explanation, this just appears to be ignorant of what APO/FPO is.

APO/FPO are specifically set up to allow active military and civilians living within and outside of the U.S. a U.S. BASED ADDRESS - in the U.S. address format, complete with ZIP code! The ONLY difference is APO or FPO being considered the "State".

 

So if the government doesn't consider APO or FPO a "foreign address", why does Quickbooks?  Is there an explanation?  My banks and insurance companies support APO.  Most retail outlets including Amazon supports APO.  Your own product TURBO TAX supports APO! In fact, the vast majority of businesses - I've found support APO / FPO. 

I've run into this issue with 1099's too.  But also, quickbooks online doesn't allow APO either.  This is despite there being 3 separate spaces for addresses - the company address, customer-facing address, and legal address.  All we are asking for is an APO option on the state dropdown - that is it.  Even if it were only on the customer-facing address, that would be better (in my case, I have a "legal" stateside address anyways, we just don't want MAIL going there).

Thank you for the information about APO/FPO on addresses, chrisuk406.

 

It would be useful to users like you to be able to enter APO/FPO as a State address. I'll pass this along to our product engineers to be considered in future updates. 

 

In the meantime, you can import a Word-file invoice or estimate template with a pre-entered business address. We have sample templates for this. You can download, edit, and import them to be used on your transactions.

 

Enable importing templates:

  1. Click the Gear icon.
  2. Under Your Account, choose QuickBooks Labs.
  3. Turn on the Import style switch and click Done.

Download the sample template:

  2. From the New style drop list, choose Import style.
  3. Click the Download a sample hypertext.
  4. Find the file on your Download folder and open it.

  6. Import it. Please refer to the screenshot in Step 3.
  7. Follow the on-screen steps until you save it.
