1099-NEC 1099-MISC

I received the following information on the 1099-NEC 1099-MISC filing for 2020 however, it is for payroll processing.

https://quickbooks.intuit.com/learn-support/en-us/form-1099-misc/how-to-modify-your-chart-of-account...

 

We do not use QuicBooks Payroll.

 

I pay both rent and nonemployee compensation through Accounts Payable.  We only use Vendors.  What is the process for that going to be?

I can provide some insights in preparing and filing 1099s with QuickBooks Desktop, @Lauri.

 

You'll need to have a payroll service to set up QuickBooks for the 1099-MISC and 1099-NEC forms. 

 

You'll just have to adjust your chart of accounts to ensure each form has accounts set up specifically for it. Then, you can either create a journal entry to post it to the newly created 1099-NEC accounts or you can edit existing payments to the new accounts.

 

Once done, you can now to begin filing your 1099-MISC and 1099-NEC forms.

I don't need payroll. 

 

I have already paid them through AP and have been doing the 1099-Misc filings through the vendor menu for 6 years.

 

Even if I added payroll I would have to process checks for all of them again which is wrong.

 

So will there be an update in the vendor menu to process the 1099-NEC and 1099-Misc and what will that entail me doing?

Regarding needed a payroll subscription to print 2020 Form 1099's... Prior to this year this has never been a requirement, and in doing a test in a company which does not have payroll, it does appear the 1099's can still be printed. Please advise. TYIA

Hello, @Neen Spell, thanks for posting in the Community! I'm happy to explain this a bit more.

 

There's no need for a payroll subscription in terms of 1099-NEC/MISC since your 1099s are not part of payroll in QuickBooks. You'll only need a payroll subscription if you use direct deposit to pay your contractors. 

 

To create new forms, go through the 1099 Wizard within your QuickBooks account: 

  1. Go to Vendors in the top menu
  2. Scroll down to > Print/E-file 1099s > 1099 Wizard.

If you have any questions or run into any roadblocks, please don't hesitate to reach out through this post. We're eager to help you with this. :)

Kiala, I still don't think you understand the question.

 

Yes, we can use the 1099 wizard, but the 1099-NEC isn't an option in Quickbooks Desktop.  It still thinks that 1099-MISC is the only form.

 

I've seen posted in some other forums that there's supposedly an update to QBD being released tomorrow (Dec 17) that adds the 1099-NEC.

It's nice to see you here in the Community, davids9.

 

Yes, you're right. Intuit will be releasing a new payroll tax update on Dec. 17, 2020. We're working as quickly as possible to launch the new 1099-NEC form to all QuickBooks payroll users.

 

For now, I'd recommend waiting and update your payroll tax table to get the latest release including the new form. Here's how:

 

  1. Click Employees at the top menu bar and choose Get Payroll Updates.
  2. Select the Download Entire Update checkbox.
  3. Hit Update. A window appears when the download is complete.

 

I recommend visiting the following article to know how 1099-MISC and 1099-NEC works in QuickBooks Desktop: How to modify your chart of accounts for your 1099-MISC and 1099-NEC filing.

 

Additionally, I've also included a link in which will guide you when filing your 1099 form in the IRS: Tax Year 2020 - Instructions for Forms 1099-MISC and 1099-NEC.

 

Don't hesitate to drop me a reply below if you have any other 1099 forms concerns or anything about QuickBooks. I'll be your helping hand today. Have a good one.

I don't have subscription for payroll anymore.

 

I stopped doing payroll around 5 years ago.

 

I have been taking care of 1099's for years thru QuickBooks though.

 

Has something changed where I have to have a payroll subscription to run 1099's now?

1099-NEC 1099-MISC

Hello there, @TaxGeekTim.

 

There are no changes when filing 1099 forms. You can still prepare your 1099 forms through QuickBooks Desktop without having a payroll subscription.

 

The second set of steps given by my colleague are for the customers that are subscribed to payroll.

 

I've added this article from IRS to know more details about the updates of the 1099-NEC form: About Form 1099-NEC, Nonemployee Compensation.

 

You can always tag my name in the comment section if you have other questions. I'd be happy to assist you further. Take care.

So I am using QB Pro 2019. Trying to print out 2020 Form 1099-NEC's  for a client of mine's subcontractors and QB Pro keeps wanting to pull 2019 data.

Thanks for the update, TaxGeekTim.

 

The 1099 NEC form is now available in QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) 2019 and you should now able to print it.

 

If I may ask, have you already performed the payroll update and have the most recent QBDT release? If no, then I suggest doing so. You can follow the steps provided by my colleague @katherinejoyceO above. 

 

If yes, ensure the date range specified for the 1099 NEC form is for the 2020 period. Here's how:

  1. Create your 1099s in QuickBooks.
  2. Select the Print 1099-NEC or Print 1099-MISC button, in the Choose a filing method window.
  3. Specify the date range for the forms.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Select all vendors you wish to print 1099s for.
  6. Tap the Print 1099 button. 
  7. Confirm your printer settings then select Print.

On the other hand, if you're on another hosted environment, you may need to wait for your host to install the latest update before seeing the 1099 NEC form. 

 

For more details about 1099, see this article: Create and file 1099s with QuickBooks Desktop.

 

For your future tasks, here's a helpful article for some directions when you're ready to do the year-end tasks: QuickBooks Desktop Year End Prep and Resources.

 

Should you have other questions, do let me know. I'll be around to help. Take care.

Yes, tou don't need a payroll subscription to print the 1099 form that is initially delivered with QuickBooks.  But, for more than a decade you've needed one in order to get updates to the 1099 form layout and other data such as the default Federal thresholds for the different boxes.  These things don't change that often and so you probably didn't notice.

 

But still, the updates to QB and the new form are only delivered via a payroll update, which you can only get if you have a payroll subscription.
