1099-NEC (or Misc) - QB Payroll service needed ??? (Quickbooks desktop)

Hello there, pjmitchell55.

 

If you're only to create the 1099-NEC (or Misc), you can do it within your company file without using the QuickBooks payroll service.

 

You'll need to turn on the 1099-MISC feature, add a contractor as a vendor, and then track contractor payments for 1099s first. You can use this article and select the Set up a contractor in QuickBooks Desktop for Windows section to review the complete steps and details.

 

Then, check with QuickBooks 1099 Wizard and prepare your 1099s. Once done, create a Tax1099 account by following these steps:

 

  1. Select Sign Up to start with Tax1099.
  2. Enter your login credential.
  3. Select the Captcha checkbox. 
  4. Then, hit Register or Let's Go!

 

Then, you can import your data either using QuickBooks Desktop Web Connector or the Tax1099 plugin. Please check this article for more details: 1099 E-File: QuickBooks Desktop setup, troubleshooting, & FAQs

 

Let me know if you have other questions. Take care and stay safe always!
