QB Issue Resolution:

in simple start and essentials you have to use a work around

you need to identify an expense account you will use to pay the 1099 vendor – keep in mind that only cash, checks (including Credit Card convenience checks), and debit card payments should post to this account. If you pay using paypal or a Credit Card use a different account.

then you run a report in January and get the totals paid to each vendor in that account for the previous year, keep in mind that you only are required to report payments if the total amount paid is over $600 for block 7 on the 1099/1096

on the net you can find 1099 prep sites that for a small fee will take the information you input and do the 1099-misc, or try Adams Help software that comes packaged with the 1099misc forms that you can buy from Staples at the end of each year.
forms are available for free from the IRS web site
