Can I and how do I prepare 1099s for entities not on QuickBooks?

Hello @usercarolynw.

 

Welcome to the Community.

 

Great news! You can definitely create 1099s for vendors or contractors, not in QuickBooks. We have a stand-alone 1099 service that is easy to use.

 

You’ll simply enter in the vendor information and then you can efile and print those 1099s. Here are instructions:

  1. From the 1099 E-File Service page, log in to your or sign up for your account.
  2. Select Enter information.
  3. Enter your company information, then select Continue.
  4. Enter your tax information, then select OK.
  5. Enter your contractor information and values for the supported boxes, then select OK. Important: There are changes to the 1099 forms and boxes in 2021 for tax year 2020, so choose your forms carefully. Most businesses will choose “Nonemployee compensation, Box 1 on the 1099-NEC, but check with your accountant if you think you might have made other types of payments.
  6. Review your 1099 forms. Select Add to continue adding more contractors, Edit to make any changes, or select Continue to proceed to the next step.
  7. On the Pay for Service window, enter your credit card information, and select Approve to pay for the service.
  8. Select the Print For Contractors or Print for your records buttons to view and print 1099 forms. Note: don’t forget to mail the forms to your contractors, we do not mail 1099s to contractors for you.
  9. Place a checkmark next to contractors paid in prior years you also wish to create a 1099 for. Select Continue.
  10. If you are ready to e-file, select Submit final forms.

 

I’m happy to help with any additional questions about issuing 1099s or anything else. Feel free to reach out any time.
