QB Issue Resolution:
Thanks for using the 1099 E-File Service in QuickBooks Online (QBO).
The 1096 forms isn’t required by the IRS when you e-file the 1099 forms. That is one less piece of paper. Check out this link for the 1099 FAQS: File 1099 Online.
With regards to your second question, Massachusetts is one of the states that support the Combined Federal and State Filing (CF/SF) Program. This means that IRS will forward the electronically filed 1099 forms to Massachusetts. Therefore, separate reporting to your state is no longer required.
That information should get you on the right track
