1099 Misc categories- how to edit

I am trying to categorize payments to 1099 contractors and can't figure out how to edit.  One person did contract work as an instructor, and for a special event.  I have expense categories for both types of payment, but right now only the instructor payment shows up for the 1099.  I need to add a second category to the calculation, but can't figure out how to add it.

1099 Misc categories- how to edit

Thank you for visiting the Community, @ameliafl.


Let me guide you on how you can add the second expense category to your Form 1099.


To get this done, please follow these steps:

  1. In the 1099 Wizard, go to the Categorize payments to contractors page.
  2. Under the Expense Account drop-down, select the two expense accounts.
  3. Click on Next until you finish your 1099.

Feel free read this article for more information: Assign Accounts to 1099-MISC Categories.
