Set up 1099 vendors in QuickBooks for Mac

This article describes how to set up vendors to receive Form 1099-MISC in QuickBooks for Mac.


Detailed instructions

Before setting up vendors to receive Form 1099-MISC,  this LittleSquare article will provide some background on 1099's.

To set up those vendors that receive Form 1099-MISC:

  1. From the QuickBooks Lists menu, choose Vendors.
  2. In the Vendor List window, click a vendor and click Edit (available under the Action menu at the bottom of the Vendor List in QuickBooks 2005) to open the Edit Vendor window.
  3. Click the Address Info tab.
    • Make sure the Address field contains the appropriate two-letter state abbreviation and the correct postal code.
    • If the vendor is a person, the vendor's legal name should appear in the First Name, M.I., and Last Name fields.
    • If you know the company name but not the person's name, leave the Company Name field blank to avoid double names on the 1099-MISC form.
  4. Click the Additional Info tab.
  5. Select the Vendor eligible for 1099 checkbox, and enter the vendor's tax identification number in the Tax ID field.
  6. Click OK.
  7. Repeat steps 2 through 6 for each 1099-eligible vendor.

    Important: Before producing 1099-MISC forms for 1099-eligible vendors, make sure that all taxpayer identification numbers and addresses are correct.
