Hello, mihosakai. 


Thank you for choosing QuickBooks as your accounting tools. To enable the checkbox for 1099 form, we'll have to ensure that we've chosen Yes from the "Do you file 1099-MISC forms?" question in your company preferences. Let me show you how: 


  1. Click Edit from the top menu bar.
  2. Select Preferences.
  3. Scroll down, then select Tax: 1099.
  4. Tap the Company Preferences tab.
  5. Select Yes from the Do you file 1099-MISC forms? question.
  6. Press OK. 

Once finished, you can go to the Vendor Center then tick the 1099 checkbox of the appropriate vendor. 


You can read through this article that will guide you on creating and filing 1099s with QuickBooks Desktop.   


To answer your question, if a lawyer is still eligible for 1099 but paid the lawyer through wired. Only vendors you paid via cash or check should be qualify and reported, and if the payments total $600 or more.  


Also, for companies outside the U.S., As long as the foreign contractor is not in the U.S and the services are only performed outside the U.S., then no Form 1099 is required, and no withholding is needed. 


Please let me know if there's anything else you need, I want to make sure you're taken care of. Thanks for reaching out, wishing you and your business all the success.

confirmed that i have the version is up to date on my desktop quickbook.

i dont need to create 1099 form as i use accounting company to issue 1099 to vendors.  but i need to provide them the information on name and amount.  i am hoping that i can create that list from QB.  i run the report 1099 summary under vendor but the report does not pick those vendors.  i checked off the vendor information under tax setting tab as eligible for 1099 though.

Please help.
