I installed all updated for QB pro 2020, But 1099-nec forms are still printed 2 on the page instead of 3. Please help
I appreciate you for running some updates to resolve this issue, rz256.
As of this time, QuickBooks prints two forms per page for 1099-NEC.
Before year-end, QuickBooks update the form to be compliant with IRS. As of now, we don't have an estimated time frame yet when the updates form is available. The system will send updates and release the latest payroll tax table to remain compliant with your tax agency. Once the form is available you can prepare and submit them.
In the meantime, you can check out some of these guides below for some additional insight into the 1099-MISC and 1099-NEC forms.
If you have additional payroll concerns or any other additional questions, don't hesitate to add them below. I'll be around to help.
3 per page 1099s are available in all QuickBooks Desktop product from 2019-2022. For QuickBooks 2020, you’ll need to make sure that you’re release/version is R13_(39+) or higher
To confirm which release you have, hit the F2 button when logged in to QuickBooks, this opens the Product Information screen, look at the release version extension...it'll be the underscore and a number.
If your product release and version is lower than those listed, you’ll need to update your QuickBooks.
It’s important to make sure to update QuickBooks to the latest release. I've outlined the steps below:
Once you’ve gone through the update process, hit F2 again and confirm the release version and extension has updated. If not, go through the update process again.
A few things to keep in mind:
Once your release/version is R13_39 or higher, you’ll have the 3 per page 1099 forms available.
Let me know if you have any additional questions. I’ll be right here if you need me.
Your instructions were a great help and I did finally get the release updated AND installed after several attempts and using the HUB. Now when I go to print the 1099-NEC it won't map the affected accounts to Box 1 - it will only map them to Box 15, State Tax Withheld. I can't figure out how to resolve this. Thanks in advance.
It's good to know that the steps shared by my colleague works on your end, swaskin.
I'll take it as the drop-down arrow under Apply payments to this 1099 box field is grayed out. Thus, you're unable to change it from Box 15 to Box 1.
Let me share some troubleshooting steps to help fix the issue on your 1099 setup.
Since you have an updated QuickBooks Desktop, we can perform the Verify and Rebuild Data. This identifies the most common data issue within the company file and resolve it.
Once done, try to map your 1099 and check to see if you can change the boxes.
If the option to change is still greyed out, I'd recommend contacting our Customer Care Team. They can review your setup and investigate what's causing this behavior. You can reach out them by clicking the Help menu and then selecting QuickBooks Desktop Help.
I've also added these references for more guides about the 1099 forms:
