Thanks for reaching out, djcydofficial.

 

Let's check if the same thing happens if we access your account via an incognito window. It's an Internet browser setting that prevents browsing history from being stored. This process fixes QuickBooks' unusual behavior.

 

Let me walk you through how.

  • CTRL+SHIFT+N for Chrome.
  • CTRL+SHIFT+P for IE and Mozilla.

Once done, access your QBO account and check your 1099 misc form again.

 

If it works, you can go back to your regular browser and clear its cache. This step helps the performance and speed of your browser. Using a different browser can be an option, too.

 

Please contact our Customer Care Support if you're getting the same results so we can further investigate and assist you from there.

 

I've also added our page about 1099 troubleshooting for your reference.

 

You can always leave a comment below if you have other questions. I'd be around for you. Have an awesome day ahead.

I am still having the same issue with the incognito window. When I download the 1099 for my record it still shows my old business name.

I still get the same results with the incognito window when I try to download a copy of my contractors 1099 for my records with my old business name.

I've got you covered, djcydofficial.

 

Let's perform one more step by correcting your company information through the payroll settings. This is to ensure your company information is accurate when you file the form.

 

Here's how:

  1. Go to the Gear icon at the right top, then select Payroll Settings.

  2. Click Contact Information under Business Information.

  3. Review and modify your company information, then click OK.

After that, you also need to log in to your 1099 standalone account and change the business name from there. 

 

Let me show you how:

  1. Go to this link: https://iop.intuit.com/login/login.jsf?only1099=1.
  2. Select Company Settings, then click Contact Information.
  3. Click Done.

Feel free to read through this article: E-File a 1099-MISC for more frequently asked questions about filing the form.

 

If you're still seeing the incorrect company name, I recommend contacting our QuickBooks Online Technical Team. They can help investigate what's causing this unexpected behavior in the system.

 

Here's how to get in touch with them:

  1. Log in to your QuickBooks account.
  2. Click Help (?) at the top right.
  3. Select Contact Us to connect with a live support agent.
  4. Enter a brief discussion of your concern, then click Let's talk.
  5. Choose a way to contact us.

Keep me posted if you need additional information, and I'm glad to help you out.
