1099-MISC - adding 2nd line for Recipient's (DBA) Name

I'm trying to add a "DBA name" on a 1099-MISC, underneath the main company name.   I'm printing from Quickbooks Pro 2018.   I'd like the 1st line to be the the main vendor name, but then also have a 2nd line right under that with their DBA.   It's only allowing one line of data for the business name.  I've tried all kinds of variations, including populating the 'Vendor name' field with the company name and the 'Company Name' field with the DBA, but the 1099 still prints with only one of these lines - not both.  Last year I was using a different version of Quickbooks and didn't have this problem.  Any help would be much appreciated.  Thanks.

Hello there, @clg3.


Thanks for dropping by the Community. I can help you add the DBA under the vendor's name for the Form 1099-MISC.


I replicated this on my end and found out that the information on the three name fields in QuickBooks populates the 1099-MISC Forms.


Here are the fields on your vendor’s profile:
•    Vendor Name
•    Company Name
•    Full Name: First Name, Middle Initial, Last Name.


In order for the DBA to show under the name of the vendor, enter it on the Company Name field. Then, specify the Vendor Name on the Full name fields in QuickBooks.

 

I added screenshots for your reference.

 

 


Doing so will show the Full Name and the Company Name information on the 1099-MISC forms. For more details, take a look at this article: Set up a 1099 vendor and print forms.

That should do it. Please give this a try and let me know how it goes. I’ll be on a look out for your response.

@KhimG

Please learn from this input.

 

@clg3

 

1099-misc is issued to the Person, as the Name. DBA is optional. That means you need to fill in First and Last Names. If you do this as part of setting up the vendor Name, just keep tabbing Out of a field, and fill in the next field, and Tab out = QB puts the data where it needs to be in edit Vendor and knows which data to use for the 1099-Misc.

 

Vendor name can be "My Deadbeat Brother." That Field is not part of 1099-Misc reporting.

 

I have attached the Help article image from the older QB Program, and this also shows the 1099, attached. Please view the attachment.
