It's 1099 time.
How do I print the 1099-NEC forms in QB Premier Plus Edition 2021? I have five vendors I need to send the forms to. Do I put the forms in the printer as one Copy A, one Copy B, one Copy C, then repeat that five times or do I put in five of the Copy A pages, five of the Copy B pages, and five of the Copy C pages? Do I print out the 1099s one at a time or can I do it all at once?
Also, what about the 1096 form? When and how is that one printed out? Does the QB Premier Plus have the option for that? I haven't been able to find it. Will the option to print it out pop up automatically or will I have to scrounge up a typewriter and type in the information?
Also, can I reprint a 1099 if this doesn't work?
Help has arrived, @Tiv.
You've got me to assist you in printing your 1099 and 1096 forms in Quickbooks Premier Plus Edition 2021.
When printing the 1099 form you'll need to select the name of your five vendors, then print the forms all at once. Moreover, the process is just the same for the 1096 form. Just choose Print 1096's instead and start printing them.
To do that:
To give you complete details about printing your vendor's forms in QBDT, please see this link: Learn how to print 1099-NEC or 1099-MISC forms.
On the other hand, if you do't have the option to print the 1096 form, make sure to download the latest QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) and payroll tax table release to have the recent features and patches.
Please let me know if you have any other concerns about this or with QuickBooks. I'll be right here to provide further assistance. Have a lovely day!
Your example looks different from mine.I don't have just the desktop version. I have the Premier Plus Edition 2021. Also, these forms are going to vendors. The 1099s have nothing to do with Payroll. We don't use the Payroll on Quickbooks.
I haven't found a 1096 button to choose. It let me choose the 1099-NEC and 1099-MISC. We're using the 1099-NEC. There was nothing about the 1096.
However, how do I put the paperwork into the printer? Is it Copy A, Copy B, Copy C, then just repeat that five times? Or do I put in five pages of Copy A, five pages of Copy B, five pages of Copy C?
Also, if something goes wrong, can I reprint the 1099s on the 1099-NEC forms?
As long as we're talking about the 1096 forms, how do I print the 1096? Does it do it automatically or do I have to push a button? If it does it automatically, can I reprint it if there's a problem?
Jumping in to share more details about printing 1096, Tiv.
The steps in the original response are applicable to all versions of QuickBooks Desktop. You'll need to go through the process of completing the Form 1099-NEC before getting the option to print the 1096.
Since you're already in the page where you can see both 1099-Misc and 1099-NEC, select the Get started button under the Form 1099-NEC. Then, click the OK once you're in the Print Form 1099-NEC window. From there, you will see the button to print 1096 similar to what's shared in the screenshot.
Put in the papers one at a time especially if they're pre-printed. This is to make sure they're aligned correctly.You can also reprint all forms in case something happens. Just follow the same steps shared above.
Don't hesitate to add another reply below if you still need more help with this. Thanks!
What do you mean when you say put the papers in one at a time? I have three papers per person. Copy A goes to the IRS, Copy B stays with me, Copy C gets sent to the vendor. Do I put A, B, then C in the printer and have all three come out with one person's information or do I put in a stack of five A pages, then five B pages, the five C pages? There's nothing in any of the instructions that tells us how to put the pages in the printer.
Thank you for getting back to us, @Tiv.
I can provide additional information about printing your forms.
We suggest you print your papers one at a time if you’re using a pre-printed form. To make sure that they’re aligned and not waste your forms
You can go to the File menu and then Printer Setup to set your form alignment. Check the following article for more information on how to align your forms: Align forms for continuous-feed (dot matrix) printers.
I'm always here if you have additional concerns or follow-up questions in printing your forms. Take care and have a wonderful day!
So after two hours on a chat room twice, both times the chat was dropped because the customer service person couldn't answer and then an hour on the phone with a customer service person who didn't know the answer and had to find it out, we finally have the answer -- Quickbooks prints out all the A copies first, then the B copies, then the C copies, and yes, they can be reprinted if necessary.
This is how it works:
Once you've gone through the Print/E-mail 1099 Forms program, you get the option to print out the forms. A Print Box will pop up. When you get to the Print Box, there are buttons you can click to print the 1099-NEC forms and the 1096 form.
You put the Copy A pages in the printer first and click on the Print 1099-NEC button.
Then you put the Copy B pages in the printer and click on the Print 1099-NEC button again.
Lastly, you put in the Copy C pages in the printer and click on the Print 1099-NEC button again.
If everything has printed out correctly, put the 1096 form in the printer and click on the Print 1096 button.
It prints out as all the A's, all the B's, all the C's. It does not print out as A, B, C, A, B, C, etc.
Yes, Quickbooks can reprint the 1099 forms if there is a problem and you need to run them again.This isn't one of the reports where you can print it one time only.
Hi there, @ninomcd.
I appreciate you for updating and restarting your QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) to prepare 1099-NEC. I can share with you some additional troubleshooting steps to get the option when preparing your 1099s.
To get started, make sure to have the supported version of QBDT to prepare this form. If you have QBDT 2017 or older, it would be the reason why 1099-NEC is missing on the Print/e-file 1099 forms window. If that's the case, I recommend upgrading your QuickBooks to the latest versions.
For your guide, I recommend checking out these articles:
You can also uninstall/reinstall your QBDT to fix the commonly known issues within your company file. Before doing the steps, I recommend backing up your file to save your data.
To uninstall QuickBooks:
Once done, here's how to reinstall QuickBooks: Install QuickBooks Desktop.
