How do I add Puerto Rico to contractors' address? I only have options to choose a State.

Hi @tsheldon3433,

 

Welcome to the Community. I can provide clarification on adding the address of a contractor that resides in Puerto Rico.

 

QuickBooks Online supports e-filing 1099's for contractors in any of the 50 states and U.S. Territories, including Puerto Rico. You would need to add the two-letter territory abbreviation in the State field, which for Puerto Rico is PR. 

 

You can locate additional information about this, including other supported U.S. Territories, in the section FAQs & Troubleshooting of the following link: 1099 E-File Service: QuickBooks Online Setup, Troubleshooting, & FAQs

 

That should be it. I'm confident this resource will help you with preparing your 1099's.

 

As always, I'm just a few clicks away if you should have any questions. Cheering you to a productive remainder of your week.

I'm having the same issue. There is no abbreviation for PR in the State* field.

Hi JackTrades787,

 

In addition to DavidSC's post, you'll need to add the PR in the Vendor Information manually.

 

Here's how:

  1. Click Expenses, and then Vendors.
  2. Add the 2-letter state or territory abbreviation in the State field (PR for Puerto Rico).

Let us know if there's anything else you need.

Intuit Online Payroll does not appear to have option for PR.  How can address contractor address to use PR?

Hello there, @clbrown84

 

Right now, Puerto Rico (PR) is an unsupported US territory when entering your contractor's address in Intuit Online Payroll.

 

You might want to consider our other product, which is QuickBooks Online Payroll (QBOP), so you can add PR to your contractor's address. With this, I'd suggest visiting this website: QBOP Plans. This link lets you view the comparison and pricing chart between the online and payroll versions of QuickBooks. Once you've chosen the right plan for you, that's the time to create a new company

 

Once done, activate the payroll service inside your QuickBooks Online account by performing the steps below: 

  1. Go to Workers from the left menu.
  2. Select Employees.
  3. Click Get Started.
  4. Choose the type of service that you want to use.
  5. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete setting up your payroll account.

 

The screenshot below shows you the first three steps.

After that, follow the steps provided by SheilaGraceA above on how to manually add the PR address in the Vendor Information window. For detailed instructions, go through this article: Add, Edit, and Inactivate Contractors

 

You can always visit this website: 1099s Overview. This link helps you get answers to frequently asked questions about the 1099-MISC forms, such as filing them through the program. 

 

I'm here anytime you have other concerns. Have a great day, @clbrown84
