Recipient Address Double Spaced on 1099

When I went through the 1099 process in Quick Books Desktop via the Wizard (first time using it), everything worked great other than the recipient name and mailing address are double spaced.  In other words, there's a blank line in between the name and the street address line and between the street address line and the city, state zip code line.  How can I fix this issue?

 

Thanks.

Recipient Address Double Spaced on 1099

Thanks for stopping by the Community space, @WGM.

 

The space between the recipient's name and mailing address is a default display. It's designed for the data to print correctly and align with pre-printed forms

 

I recommend checking out this article for the details: Print my 1099 forms. The link provides general information and how to send the form to the IRS.

 

Since this is your first time running the 1099 Wizard, I'm adding this resource to serve as your guide: Prepare and file 1099s with QuickBooks Desktop.

 

Let me know if you need anything else by leaving a comment. I'm always here and ready to help. Have an awesome day!

Recipient Address Double Spaced on 1099

KhimG, thanks for the response.

 

I had previously reviewed the links you also provided, but neither provide a solution.  The recipient's name and address are spaced on the pre-printed 1099 forms from QBs so that the information basically takes up the entire "Recipient" box because of the double spacing.  How can I manually adjust the name and address so that it is single spaced?

 

Thank you.

Glad to have you here, @WGM.

 

The spacing guidelines are set in place by the IRS. Therefore, QuickBooks can't make any changes when it comes to how the spacing is set up on the 1099s.

 

Thanks so much for reaching out, please post again or reply to this thread if you have any other questions.

Recipient Address Double Spaced on 1099

RE: The recipient's name and address are spaced on the pre-printed 1099 forms from QBs so that the information basically takes up the entire "Recipient" box because of the double spacing.

 

There are three boxes on the form, each for one line of text.  Here's a capture of the form from the IRS site:

The text should land in each box, under the labels.  The the boxes are rather tall. Does the text not fit in the boxes when you print the forms?

 

Note that the black versions of the forms don't have lines between the fields, which is weird, but there are still the three fields with labels above where the text belongs.
