What is the cost for 1099 MISc?

Greetings, @katarzyna-dyrcz.


Thank you for visiting the Community space. I can share some information about the cost of 1099 MISC for QBO users.


QuickBooks Online has a great time-saving feature that allows you to run and pull up 1099 forms. You have the option to e-file or mail them to the IRS.


If you're referring to the 1099 E-File service, it starts at $14.99. This includes creating and e-filing of up to three 1099-MISC forms to the IRS. For each additional form, the price is $3.99. I advise you check this link for more details and available discounts: E-file 1099s.


On the other hand, you can also pull up the form for free (as long as you have an active payroll subscription) and manually file it to IRS. The IRS requires you send 1099s on pre-printed paper forms. You can purchase your 2018 Pre-Printed 1099 Kits with us. This kit includes paper forms 1099 and 1096, and compatible double-window envelopes.


For additional insights about 1099, please check this link: Common questions about 1099s.


That should be enough information to get you going today, katarzyna-dyrcz.


Let me know if you have other questions about the forms. I'm always here to provide more help. Wishing you all the best.

When I talked to QBO, they told me there is no fee except for purchasing the required forms. I specifically mentioned that “I heard” I had to have a payroll subscription and they replied that I didn’t need one. I’m a bit confused. Does anyone know if they have changed their policy lately?

Hello there, @MMM05454.

We recently introduce the Standalone 1099. This service doesn't require you to have the payroll subscription to run and process the 1099 MISC form.

I e-filed 1099's for several of my clients and can't find the payment receipts anywhere. I thought they were supposed to be emailed to me but they weren't (I made sure the email address until Company Settings was my email, and I've received the confirmation emails that the IRS has accepted several of the client's submissions.) I've logged back into the e-file module to try and file SOMETHING that says the amount charged, but I can't find anything. Any suggestions? (I see charges on my credit card, but I can't tied back which charge is for which client!)

Hi there, @SMRTBusiness.


Allow me to share with you some insights about payment receipts for the 1099 filing.


Usually, the charges depend on your client's payroll subscription. The Full-Service plans include a free filing of up to 3 1099-MISC and 1099-NEC forms. While other payroll subscription will include charges when e-filing 1099s.


To review the charges posted on your credit card account, I would recommend checking this with our Support Team. This way, a representative can review your account securely and take a look at the charges.


If you have any other questions about e-filing your 1099 forms, please let me know by adding a comment below. I'm always here to help. Keep safe!
