Printing 1099 forms when efiling

I am working on 1099's and am required to efile them all.  I was expecting to be able to print the copy to give to my contractors on plain paper as I did with W-2's but there is not option to print on blank paper. 

Don't tell me I'm going to have to buy the 1099 forms as well as pay QB third party to e file for me?

Printing 1099 forms when efiling

I understand you want to send your contractors a printed copy of the 1099 forms, ljkentucky. 

Printing 1099s varies depending on whether you have e-filed or not. If you used Tax1099 to e-file forms, follow the steps in this Tax1099 article, Where Can I See My Submitted Forms? to print a copy.


On the other hand, if you don't e-file with Intuit, Purchase your 1099 Kit by mid-January so you can print. Please remember to keep track of the deadlines for filing your taxes with the IRS and delivering work as a contractor.


  1. Update your QuickBooks Desktop file to the latest release. Be sure to select the Reset Update checkbox.
  2.  It's important to be on the latest release to ensure that your 1099s print correctly,
  3. Hover to Vendors, then choose 1099 Forms, then Print/E-file 1099 Forms. Create your 1099s.
  4. In the Choose a filing method window, select Print 1099-NEC or Print 1099-MISC.
  5. Specify the date range for the forms, then choose OK.
  6. Select all vendors for whom you wish to print 1099s, then select Print 1099
  7. Double-check your printer settings, then choose Print.


For more information, refer to this article: Print your 1099 and 1096 forms.


Meanwhile, you can read the year-end checklist to wrap up this year's payroll. It includes essential tasks that needs to be completed before the end of the year, such as processing employee bonuses, preparing W-2 and 1099 forms, and verifying year-to-date totals for each employee.

I see now when you e file through the QB connection that they mail or email the hard copies - problem solved
