Using the 1099 Wizard in QuickBooks Desktop Pro (2019), is there a way to print a partial (truncated) Tax ID number on Copy B of Form 1099-MISC, mailed to the recipient, in order to protect the recipient's identity? For example, the Social Security No. would appear this way: XXX-XX-1234.
The IRS allows it, but I don't see where the 1099 Wizard makes it possible.
Currently, the feature to hide the tax numbers in the form is unavailable. If we are going to replace the numbers to any characters, it will give you an error. I can see that this is a good feedback to be submitted to our developers for product modification. I'll let them know about this.
Thank you for your quick reply! By "manually file" I assume you mean it's okay to type up Copy B for each recipient rather than printing it through the 1099 Wizard; is that right? So long as the information is in the correct box, precise alignment should not be an issue for the recipient/taxpayer?
