Can you print 1099-MISC Copy 1 and Copy 2 on plain paper from Quickbooks?

I've printed 1099-MISC Copy A on preprinted forms just fine, but can't find a way to print the 1099-MISC Copy 1 or Copy 2 on PLAIN paper from Quickbooks.   Is this possible?   Or do I need buy forms to print Copy 1 and Copy 2?   If Quickbooks can't do this, is there an alternative - i.e. a recommended online service that can print Copy 1 and Copy 2?

Yes, you can print them on plain paper, cg5.


If you need the form for keeping or recording purposes, you can use a plain paper to print the 1099's. However, you'll need to use the pre-printed forms if you're going to file the 1099's.


To do this, just follow the wizard like this:

  1. Click File at the top, select Print Forms from the drop-down, and then choose 1099s/1096.
  2. Click the Get Started button in the QuickBooks 1099 Wizard page.
  3. Select your 1099 vendors and click Continue.
  4. Verify your vendors' information and click Continue.
  5. Map the vendor payments and click Continue.
  6. Review the payments for exclusions and click Continue.
  7. Confirm your 1099 entries and click Continue.
  8. Select the Print 1099s button in the Choose a filing method page, select a date range, and then click OK.
  9. Select the vendors you're printing the 1099s for, and then insert the plain paper in your printer.
  10. When you're ready to print, click Print 1099.

If you need the pre-printed forms for Copy 1 and Copy 2, you can purchase them at office supply stores and from Intuit Market.
