How to updates vendor bills to record as 1099 tracked after bills have been entered and paid?

I have created vendors without checking the Track 1009 box, entered Bills and paid checks that should have been tracked for 1099's.  How can I update these transactions to report on the 1099 report?

Thanks for posting the details of your concern, @CB66.


Allow me to share some information about tracking your payment for 1099 for your vendor in QuickBooks Online (QBO) account.


You’ll want to go your vendor profile and check the Track payments for 1099 box from there. Let me show you how:


  1. Go to the Expense menu.
  2. Select the Vendor tab.
  3. Locate and select your preferred vendor.
  4. From the vendor transaction window, click Edit to open your Vendor Information.
  5. Put a check on the Track payments for 1099 box, then click Save3.JPG

Once done, this will automatically update all transactions under that vendor to show on your 1099 report. You’ll want to ensure to accurately map you accounts in preparing and filing your 1099 to achieve this. I’ve added this article that can guide you through the process effectively: Create and file 1099s using QuickBooks Online.
