1099 NEC Forms - Three per page

Hello - novice user here - QB for Mac Desktop. I am trying to print my 1099 NEC forms. The forms I purchased are the three-per-page style (not two per). Anyone know of an option to print these? I am not seeing looks like it only wants to print the two-per-page style. Hoping for a fix/workaround before I go buy the correct forms.... Thanks!

1099 NEC Forms - Three per page

Welcome to the Community space, chrislisle.


If you're using QuickBooks Desktop for Mac 2021 and 2022, it's now supporting the printing for 1099s. If it's the 2019 and 2020 versions, our product engineers are still working on it and will be released as soon as possible. 


In the meantime, you can consider downloading the form from the IRS website, then manually filling out the 1099s that have three tax forms per page.


To know more about the updates in QuickBooks Mac, I recommend checking our blog:


To learn more about 1099s, here's an article that you can read: Create and file 1099s with QuickBooks Desktop.


Please know that you can always get back into this post if you have more questions. I'll keep an eye out for your response.

1099 NEC Forms - Three per page

none of what mirriam M said is true. There is no ability to print out 3 per page on the 1099 NEC...i'm getting emails from this forum multiple times a day with new recommendations on how to download an update that has the fix but absolutely none of them are options so far. i've got v19.0.10 R11 and it's set to automatically update. there are no options to change that setting. Also, DO NOT fill in your 1099s manually. you will be penalized. At this point quickbooks is useless. i'm going to file electronically with another provider. Even if i loose $$ on the 1099 forms i purchased.

I am using Quickbooks Destop Pro 2020 and this is still not fixed.  Is there any update to print 1099NEC 3 per page as the Fed wants on their proper form?

Good day, 440patty!


QuickBooks Desktop already supports 3-part 1099-NEC. Let me help you.


Let's check the release version of your QuickBooks Desktop Pro 2020. We need to make sure you're on R13_(39+) by pressing F2 on your keyboard to open the Product Information window. If not, please update it to the latest release.


We also created an article with instructions for printing 1099s 3 per page. Please click this link: Print 3-part 1099s in QuickBooks Desktop. You can check the A few things to keep in mind section for other reminders to print the form successfully.


In addition, here are some articles if you need to run payroll reports:


I'm only a post away if you have more questions about 1099. Take care!

Thank you.  My version is R13_28 - I did the update option and it states no new updates.

You need to reset the updates if your product release and version are lower than those listed below:

To reset the update:


  1. Go to the Help menu and then choose Update QuickBooks Desktop.
  2. Select the Update Now tab.
  3. Tap to check the box for Reset Update. This will clear all previous update downloads.
  4. Click on Get Updates to start the download.
  5. Once the download finishes, restart QuickBooks.
  6. When prompted, accept the option to install the new release.


Once you've successfully installed the updates, confirm the release version and extension by clicking on F2 on your keyboard.


I've included this article once you're ready to print Form 1099-NEC.
