Printing recipient copy of Form 1099 on plain paper - how to have the lines and other form info print

This year we are allowed to print the 1099s on plain paper (except for the federal copy which is still on the red form). I know how to print the 1099s onto the form, but how do I print it on plain paper so that all of the lines and form information prints also?

Printing recipient copy of Form 1099 on plain paper - how to have the lines and other form info print

Welcome back to the Community, @clg3.

 

In QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT), the option to include the lines/tables when printing a recipient copy of 1099 on a blank paper is currently unavailable. The system has defaulted the setup to pre-printed form.

 

I'll pass along your suggestion to our Product Developers. They're always looking for ideas to consider on how to improve QBO.

 

In the meantime, I recommend visiting our Blog site. This is where we share recent happenings and future developments, such as updates to newly added features.

 

Just in case, I'll add this article for future reference: How do I print my 1099 forms?

 

Please let me know in the comment section if you have any other issues or concerns. I'll be more than happy to assist. Have a great day!

Thank you for your answer!   It's not what I was hoping to hear, as now I will have to obtain the  forms.  I hope Quickbooks will update the desktop version for next year so that we have the option to print the 1099s on plain paper.  Thanks again for your quick, thorough answer though.

I find it ridiculous how you can print the W2s on regular paper with the lines and everything from quickbooks but when it comes to 1099s you cannot. I understand copy A and the 1096 need be in the red ink but all the others? It's so tedious!
