1099 option not showing

Thanks for following up with the Community about this, Emy1881. I appreciate your picture, that helps me better understand what you're experiencing.
 

After reviewing the screenshot you've provided and taking a look in QuickBooks myself, it looks to me that you should definitely have the Tax: 1099 option available. However, it may be somewhat hidden when you first access your preferences.
 

I've included an animated image showing where you'll be able to find what you're looking for:


As Rubielyn_J mentioned, once you've set your Do you file 1099-MISC forms? setting to Yes, you'll be able to tick the Vendor eligible for 1099 checkbox when editing a vendor's Tax Settings.


Many useful resources about working with QuickBooks can be found in our help article archives.
 

I'll be here to assist if there's any additional questions. Have a lovely day!

I'm here to make sure you can access the 1099 option, @Emy1881.

 

To enable the checkbox for the 1099 form, let's ensure that we've selected Yes from the "Do you file 1099-MISC forms?" question in your company preferences. Let me show you how:

 

  1. Go to the Edit menu from the topmost portion.
  2. Select Preferences.

  3. Scroll down, then choose Tax: 1099.
  4. Click the Company Preferences tab.
  5. Click Yes from the Do you file 1099-MISC forms? question.
  6. Select OK.

Once done, you can go to the Reports tab and Vendor Center and then click the 1099 checkbox for the appropriate vendor. 

 

I've added a reference that will guide you in preparing and filing 1099s with QuickBooks Desktop.

 

Feel at ease to let me know if you have further inquiries about how 1099s work in QuickBooks. I'd be glad to help you as soon as I can. Keep safe.

EXCELLENT!!! it worked!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!. 

Now, when I am going to print the forms, it says: "Base on your 1099 setup, no 1099 vendors have sufficient payments for this period to received your 1099 MISC form". 

 

But all the vendors received more than $10,000 in 2020. Could you please help me with this too?

 

 

Thank you so much!!

Thanks for the keeping us updated, @Emy1881. I'm glad to know that the solutions provided by my colleagues above worked for you. 

 

When processing 1099, there are payments excluded. This includes those payments made to 1099 vendors via credit card, debit card, or third party system, such as PayPal, are excluded from the 1099-MISC and 1099-NEC calculations. This is because the financial institution reports these payments, so you don't have to.

 

To determine what payments are excluded, here's what you can do:

  1. Go to the Reports menu at the top. 
  2. Choose Vendors & Payables.
  3. Pick 1099 Summary.
  4. Select All allowed accounts in the 1099 options drop-down menu.
  5. If you find the missing vendor, find the Account and determine if it was used to make credit card payment.
    1. Double-click the amount in the Total column for your Vendor.
    2. In the 1099 Detail report make note of the Accounts in the Account column.
  6. To show these transactions on 1099 reports and forms
    1. Go to Edit, then select Preferences.
    2. In the Preferences window, select Tax:1099 from the left pane, then select Company Preferences tab.
    3. Select the link click here next to If you want to map your accounts to boxes on form 1099-MISC.
    4. QuickBooks 1099 wizard page will come up. You will be directed to Map Accounts. This window displays all accounts used for payments to 1099 vendors. From the Apply payments to this 1099 box drop-down, choose one of the 1099 boxes.
  7. Once done, close the 1099 Detail report.
  8. Select the second 1099 Options drop-down, then select Only 1099 accounts.

For more information about this, see this article: What payments are excluded from a 1099-NEC and 1099-MISC?.

 

Here's also a helpful resource you can read in case you'd encounter issues when preparing 1099: 1099 E-File: QuickBooks Desktop setup, troubleshooting, & FAQs.

 

Keep me posted with the result. I want to make sure you're taken care of. Have a great day.
