When you select print, the screen brings up the print menu for you to verify the check number, etc. and the default box is check for printing on both sides. This is in QuickBooks and not a printer option.

QuickBooks calls the printer driver, which tells Apple's print dialog what to display.  Double sided is a function of the printer driver.  Unselect it in the print dialog. Normally these settings stick for future use so once unchecked it should stay unchecked.

WRONG!  I am having the same double sided printing problem.  It just started in the last couple weeks.  Have re-started both the QBKS program and the printer multiple times.  Checked the print settings in all areas, all of which are set to 1 sided printing....yet it still prints double sided EVERY time.  Very frustrating!

Well the answer was good for two years before it was WRONG! so I'm ok with that.  Sometimes printer settings get saved. When you bring up the print dialog hold down the option key.  Keep it held down after hitting Print in the Print Dialog.  That will wiped out cached settings.  Did that help?

Sorry....I forgot to say I am running the Windows 7 in a Parallels environment on my Mac.  So wouldn't it still be a Mac printing system?  I automatically go to the Mac forum (habit).

Its QuickBooks Windows printing on top of Windows printing on top of Parallels emulation of Windows printing on top of the macOS Printing.  But its not QuickBooks Mac printing which is what we know about on this forum. Someone from Windows side may comment here but its better to ask on the Windows side.

Two sided printing is one of the printer driver settings. It should be controllable from the same print dialog - just be sure to hit the disclose triangle and then go through all the menus.

This might help if, like me, you are running QB in Windows in a Parallels Virtual machine:
Start the Windows virtual machine and go to the top menu bar, click on Actions--> Configure--> Hardware--> Share Printer--> please enable the " Show page setup before printing"
