I want to ensure you'll be able to print your 1099 form in QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) smoothly, @colacommollc.


We can perform the following troubleshooting steps to isolate your printing concern. Before that, ensure that your QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) is updated to the latest release so you always have the latest components and fixes.


Then, let's proceed with running QuickBooks PDF & Print Repair Tool. Here's how:

  1. Close your QBDT program. 
  2. Then, download and install the most recent version of the QuickBooks Tool Hub.
  3. Once finished installing, open the tool hub and select Program Problems.
  4. Next, click QuickBooks PDF & Print Repair Tool. Wait until the process is completed.
  5. When done, attempt to print your 1099 NEC again. 


If the same thing happens, let's move on to the next solution which is to reset your temp folder permissions. See the following steps:

  1. Press the Windows key + R to open the RUN command.
  2. Next, type %TEMP% and press Enter.
  3. Then, right-click an empty area of the temp folder, and choose Properties.
  4. Click the Security tab.
  5. Make sure all user names and groups showing on the Security tab have Full Control.
  6. Save as a PDF again within QuickBooks, once the permissions have been set to Full Control.
  7. Once done, perform a test print to confirm you can print to your XPS.


For reference to the above process, feel free to visit this article: Troubleshoot PDF and Print problems with QuickBooks Desktop. This also includes additional troubleshooting steps in case the problem still occurs.


You'll want to pull up 1099 reports in QBDT to get a handy copy of your 1099 information as well as to review further the details. To do so, you can either run the 1099 Summary or 1099 Detail report

Thanks for joining in on this thread, MES2.


Let me add some additional steps to help you print the 3 part form for 1099 NEC.


If you haven't tried resetting the update, here's how to do it:


  1. Go to the Help > Update QuickBooks Desktop.
  2. Select the Update Now tab. Tip: You MUST select the Reset Update checkbox to clear all previous update downloads.
  3. Select Get Updates to start the download.

When the download finishes, please exit QuickBooks and restart your computer. Open your QuickBooks program and when you get a prompt, accept the option to install the new release. 


Once done, try to print your 1099 form again by following these steps:


  1. Create your 1099s in QuickBooks.
  2. In the Choose a filing method window, select the Print 1099-NEC or Print 1099-MISC button.
  3. Specify the date range for the forms then choose OK.
  4. Select all vendors you wish to print 1099s for.
  5. Click the Print 1099 button. 
  6. Confirm your printer settings then hit Print.
