Printing 1099s

I run a seasonal business, and finish paying my subs by late October. I would love to get a head start on year end by printing 2018 1099s now. I can't seem to change the date range for totaling 1099s, and the wizard will only look at 2017 vendor payments.

Is there a way to create 1099s for 2018 payments before 2018 actually ends?

Thanks so much for any insight :)

Re: Printing 1099s

You change the date in Two Places.

 

Go all the way through until the Review steps, both 4 and 5 allow you to change the Dates. Step 5, for instance, top right "See Other years" and Reports at the top, for Year. Then, for Print/Preview, that step asks you to Set the date range there. I got my 1099-Misc for 2018 from the IRS already, so you can do this, too.

Printing 2018 1099s & W-2's on a Deskjet

I ordered my forms from Intuit but found that they did not alighn properly. For 1099's you need to set your Vertical Alighnment to a -10. Yes you can enter a minus sign. For W-2's you need to enter 10 (without the minus). I suggest that Intuit include this suggestion in their help article. I also found that the QB software did not update to the latest W-2 form - the last name of my employee is indented far to the right. Last years W-2 had spots for First Name, Initial and Last name. This may or may not be a problem with the IRS. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Re: Printing 2018 1099s & W-2's on a Deskjet

I have an Office Jet and I am finding that the font on the 1099's - at least the test to align is too small so things aren't printing correctly.  Any ideas?
