2020 1099 contractors are being excluded from 1099 even though they exceeded the threshold

I have read through all the "helpful" answers and suggestions and followed all the solutions.  Nothing is working.

I have 9 contractors that are getting 1099s and 5 which are excluded.

I have verified that the 5 are marked as 1099 contractors on their profile.

I have verified that in 2020 all their bills were entered to the expense "Sub-Contractor Expense"

I have verified that all the payments for those invoices are paid with a check in QB and not PayPal or credit card.

I have verified that their payments in 2020 exceed $600.

I have verified that "Sub-Contractor expense" is not a sub category.  It is the parent category.

I have verified that I have chosen "Sub-Contractor Expense" as the account for box 7 on the 1099.

 

This is the most frustrating QB problem I have had in a long while.  My other accounting software allows me to ADD people to the list of 1099s I want to print even if they are below the threshold.  That sure would be handy here.  I've spent over 2 hours on this and I can't bill my client for "research".

Well dam*, it does seem as though you have done everything needed

I don't know if it is a typo or not, but QBO can be odd in some ways, in one instance you refer to Sub-contractor Expense and later as Sub-Contractor expense

If the first letter in expense is different, try changing that

Thanks for the quick response.

 

It was a typo on my part in the question.  My QB expense is listed as "Sub-Contractor" and that's what is chosen for box 7 as well.

Hello there, @Arch2.

 

It seems that you've posted twice with the same concern. My colleague already provided an answer to your concern. You may refer to this article: 

https://quickbooks.intuit.com/learn-support/en-us/reports-and-accounting/re-how-do-i-generate-1099-f....

 

I've also added some pages that might help you in your 1099 mapping. 

 

 

Please let me know if you have follow-up questions about 1099. I'm always here for you. Keep safe!

Well all,

It turns out that I have discovered a real glitch in the QB software.  The online tech support was stumped and spent 36 minutes going back and forth between me and other higher ups.  We did a screen share so they could verify that all my information was correct for my contractors and each of the expenses.

 

We went into the 1099 preparer screen and verified that I had everything clicked correctly.

 

We toggled things on and off, went back, went forward toggled things on and off, went back, went forward and toggled a few more things and it finally worked.

 

She said that she was going to write it up and share it with all the other tech support folks because this is a first for them.  I'm so lucky to be the guinea pig with less than 10 hours to go before the filing deadline.  

 

Not to mention the 3 plus hours of MY time I spent trying to figure out what I did wrong.

 

Sage Peachtree is a superior accounting software in my opinion.  I hate that I have to use this because it's what my client wants to use.
