QB Issue Resolution:

I’d be happy to help share some information about filing the 1099 form.


You’re correct. An EIN or an SSN is required when you file the 1099 forms of your contractors. QuickBooks is designed to detect missing information such as the EIN or SSN to make sure you comply with the requisite details of the tax agencies.


To ensure that you’re able to send the 1099 forms for other vendors, you can just exclude that contractor using the 1099 Wizard.


Here’s how:

  1. From the Vendors menu, select  Print/E-file 1099s.
  2. Select 1099 Wizard.
  3. Click the Get Started button.
  4. In the Select your 1099 vendors window, find the vendor’s name.
  5. Remove the check on the box to unselect the vendor.
  6. Click Continue to file your 1099- MISC forms.

That should allow you to prepare and file the forms excluding that vendor.
