1099 Wizard Not Allowing Vendor Mapping

The instructions show the following for selecting/mapping accounts to vendors, but this column does not exist in the Billing Wizard - there is no drop-down:


Go to the drop-down in the Apply payments to this 1099 box section. Select the account you want to link the payment to and select Continue.


Please help.  I need to get my 1099s completed.

1099 Wizard Not Allowing Vendor Mapping

I want to make sure you're able to complete your 1099s in no time, @Toni1978


It could be QuickBooks Desktop isn't updated. That's why you're unable to see the drop-down in the Apply payments to this 1099 box section.


To help fix this, let's make sure the program is updated to its release. This way, you can select appropriate accounts for your 1099 vendor payments. Let me guide you how. 

  1. Go to Help from the top menu.
  2. Select Update QuickBooks Desktop
  3. Go to the Update Now tab. 
  4. Choose Reset Update to clear all previous update downloads.
  5. Click Get Updates to start the download.
  6. Restart QBDT when the download is completed. 
  7. When prompted, accept the option to install the new release.


The screenshot below shows you the first five steps. For detailed instructions, go through this article: Update QBDT To The Latest Release



Once done, you'll be able to view the drop-down in the Apply payments to this 1099 box section as seen in the screenshot below. Then, proceed with the remaining steps on how to prepare and file your 1099s through the software.



If you choose to print your 1099 forms and file by mail to the IRS, you'll need to use pre-printed forms. With this, I'd suggest purchasing them from Intuit. However, if you prefer to e-file the forms, visit this website1099s Overview. This link provides you more details about the setup, troubleshooting common issues, and frequently asked questions (FAQs) in e-filing your 1099s. 


I'm here anytime you have other concerns. Have a great day, @Toni1978
