How to File 1099-NEC when TIN is missing

Hello!

 

Section 6109 of the Internal Revenue Code requires that Payee's provide a W-9 with their TIN if properly requested.  In order to avoid penalties on our side, I must request the W-9 at least 3 times. I have done so and I have two vendors that have never responded.  They both meet the threshold requiring we file a 1099-NEC.

 

As I do not have their TIN, how can I process their 1099-NEC using the 1099 module in QBO?

Do I need to send these two 1099-NEC's as handwritten copies?

 

Thank you!

The Community has got your back, @DB2Contractors.

 

I can share options to help you process 1099 NEC. First, you need to reach out to your vendors and ask for their Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) to process 1099 in QuickBooks. Once done, here's a detailed guide to help you process 1099: Create and file 1099s using QuickBooks Online

 

If you're unable to connect with them, another option is to submit 1099-NEC outside QuickBooks. 

 

For additional info, please see this article: Troubleshoot common 1099 issues.  

 

I also encourage you to visit our QBO Help page. From there, you can browse articles or get some ideas from other QuickBooks users and experts. This way, you'll get more insights that can help you with your accounting tasks. 

 

Let me know how this goes and leave a reply below. I'm always around to help you. Have a good one.

Thank you for the response.

I was thinking I would have to file one 1099 outside of QBO. I will uncheck the Track 1099 so I can process the rest of them, then check it again (for the future, though I doubt we will work with someone who refuses to comply - I did my three attempts with him!).

This was just the answer I was looking for as it was very specific to QBO's handling of 1099's, not the process in general.

Cheers!
