(QB Desktop) 1099 option not showing

Question Detail:

Hello, the 1099 option is not showing under the vendors tab and not showing under the reports tab. When i go to each vendor, the check mark for 1099 is grey and not active. 



To enable the checkbox for the 1099 form, let's ensure that we've selected Yes from the "Do you file 1099-MISC forms?" question in your company preferences. Let me show you how:


  1. Go to the Edit menu from the topmost portion.
  2. Select Preferences.
  3. Scroll down, then choose Tax: 1099.
  4. Click the Company Preferences tab.
  5. Click Yes from the Do you file 1099-MISC forms? question.
  6. Select OK.

Once done, you can go to the Reports tab and Vendor Center and then click the 1099 checkbox for the appropriate vendor. 


I've added a reference that will guide you in preparing and filing 1099s with QuickBooks Desktop.
