QB Desktop for Mac 2020 New IRS form 1099-NEC.

Does anyone have any information as to when Intuit will be updating QB Desktop for Mac to allow it to print the new IRS Form 1099-NEC?

Filing 1099 is unavailable in QB Desktop for Mac at this time, gappleb.

 

What you need to do is export all the needed information, then go to tax1099.com. From there, print the forms and complete the filing process. 

 

Another option is to go to the Vendors page, then choose 1099s, and select Intuit E-File 1099 Service. Please click this link for more guidance: E-file your 1099s with QuickBooks Desktop Mac 2020.

 

I'm adding these articles for further details about the 1099-NEC FAQs and various updates in QBDT. 

Let me know if you have other questions. I'm always here to help.

Intuit should keep their products up to date so the customer doesn't need to reinvent the wheel to do something as basic as print required IRS forms.

The update to print 1099-NEC came through yesterday. The only problem is the alignment feature is not working so you can't adjust to print in the appropriate boxes of the form. Very frustrating.

I agree. The update for the 1099-NEC came yesterday however the alignment feature is not working so you can't print your forms accurately. Very frustrating.

I've got steps to help you print 1099 NEC in QuickBooks, @AdEdgeAgency.

 

Let's ensure that your system is updated to its latest release. Here's how: 

  1. Click the QuickBooks▼ dropdown, and choose Check for QuickBooks Updates.
  2. If a newer version is available, select Install Update.
  3. When prompted, pick Install and Relaunch.
  4. When the update is complete, QuickBooks for Mac automatically opens.

 

Once done, print your 1099's again. Let me walk you through the process:

 

  1. Click Print 1099s to print your forms.
  2. You’ll see a new window appear, select 1099s.
  3. Note: you can’t print your forms on plain paper. You need preprinted forms to print on, and QuickBooks will fill in the information on the official forms. You can order those forms from Intuit if needed.

 

For the detailed steps, proceed to page 154 (Using the 1099 wizard to create 1099s) of QuickBooks Desktop for MAC user's guide.  

 

If the same thing happens, I highly recommend reaching out to our technical support team. They can help you print and process your 1099s. To connect with them, refer to these steps:

 

  1. Head to the Contact support page at this link.
  2. Choose QuickBooks Desktop Mac
  3. Click on Search for something else and enter Cannot print 1099 NEC in the search box.
  4. Hit Search.
  5. Select Start a Messageqbdtmachelp.JPG

 

Let me know how this goes and leave a comment below if you need further assistance in printing your 1099's. I'm always around to help. Have a good one.
