Overriding the amount on 1099 form

I’m preparing 1099 for a new job this year and the amount on my 1099 summary is different from the details report.  1099 amount is picking up both check payments and J/E amount. How can I  make the correct amount show in QB? Can I manually input all my payment amount?

 

Thank you in advance,

 

Natasha

Re: Overriding the amount on 1099 form

You are not supposed to use JE when Names are involved. You just bypassed Cash vs Accrual basis reporting, and you cannot list Items there. You don't have a Payee name. You made a Brute Force Accounting entry.

 

Name-related transactions for 1099-Misc vendors are Checks, Credit Card Charges, Credit Card Refunds, Bills, Bill Credits, and Bill Payment Checks. Not JE.

 

Every JE for a vendor name would be replaced with the proper Transaction Type. Someone doesn't understand QB, if they make JE and use Names on them.

 

And Banking doesn't need JE; you already have the right tools on the Banking menu.

 

UF never gets a JE; that's a great way to corrupt that account and this desktop file.

 

To get correct Reporting, you correct the data entries.

Hello there! I agree and going forward it will not be done that way.

In the meantime is there a way to override the amount in QB for the 1099 form?

 

Please let me know

"In the meantime is there a way to override the amount in QB for the 1099 form?"

 

It's already been explained that the issue you ran into is "Source and Target name."

 

The JE is the Wrong way to do this. The way to Fix it is to make the Check Spending entries per Payee Name and then Delete the JE.
