QBOL Accountant 1099 vendor

QBOL Accountant 1099 report doesn't show any of my vendor amounts?

I entered vendor checks but have not printed the checks yet.


Will the vendor amounts show up AFTER I print the checks?

QBOL Accountant 1099 vendor

Thanks for posting your concern in the Community forum, NHop. I'd be happy to help you with your issue regarding 1099 reports in QuickBooks Online.


There are reasons why you may not see vendor amounts when you generate 1099 reports. Firstly, if the amount is not showing up in the 1099 Transaction Detail report, it might be because there are no transactions mapped to a box when preparing the 1099 forms. As you may know, this report is designed to track transactions related to 1099s or when they are being prepared within the program. Therefore, if you didn't prepare the form for that period, these transactions or data won't show in the report.  


If you want to map transactions to boxes for this year and show them in this report, you can follow the steps below:


  1. Go to Payroll, then select Contractors.
  2. Click Prepare 1099s.
  3. Ensure your company name, email, address, and tax ID are correct and match those found on tax notices or letters from the IRS. Select Edit to make any changes.
  4. Select Confirm info and get started.
  5. Choose Select Accounts and select or confirm the accounts used for your 1099 expenses or payments, then select Add.
  6. Next to each account added, select the 1099-NEC or 1099-MISC boxes that represent the type of payments made to your contractors this year, then select Next.
  7. On the Tracked for 1099 tab, place a checkmark next to each contractor who should get a 1099. Make sure ‌the contractors' info and email addresses are correct. Select Edit to make any changes.
  8. Review the Reportable total amount for each contractor selected then select Next.
  9. Select Preview to view each 1099 and review the amount in each box. Select Continue to 1099-MISCs to view your 1099-MISC forms, then select Next.
  10. Select Continue to E-File to e-file your 1099s. Or select I’ll print and mail to print and mail the forms yourself.

On the other hand, another possibility is when you run the 1099 Contractor Balance Detail, and 1099 Contractor Balance Summary reports. These reports display all the bills that make up the total amount of what you owe to your contractors and vendors. Since you've mentioned you created a check for your vendor, this transaction won't be included in these reports. Instead, you can use other vendor-specific reports to view the total amounts and their details.


Furthermore, you might consider customizing your reports to tailor the information presented to meet your specific needs and focus on the key details that matter most to you.
