Print Form 1099-MISC in QuickBooks for Mac

This article describes printing Form 1099-MISC in QuickBooks for Mac.

Note: QuickBooks for Mac 2007 and earlier do not print Form 1096. You can use the total for vendors selected (shown on Form 1099-MISC) when completing your 1096 form but the form is not available within this program.

Detailed Instructions

Before printing 1099-MISC forms Intuit recommends that you perform these steps:

  1. Verify all 1099 information by viewing the 1099 reports:
    1. From the QuickBooks Reports menu, choose Vendors & Payables and then select 1099 Summary.
    2. If the figures appear incorrect, double-click the amount in the TOTAL column to view the individual transactions.
  2. Make sure that you have blank 1099-MISC forms designed for printers. These forms are available at office supply stores and from the Intuit Market web site.
  3. Make sure your printer is turned on and is online.
  4. Print a test form before printing final forms (see instructions below for your version of QuickBooks).
  5. Load enough blank 1099-MISC forms in your printer as you would load letterhead.

    Note: Do not collate your forms before putting them into the printer. Instead, start by loading all of the Copy 1 forms. After you have printed all of the Copy 1 forms for each vendor, then load and print the Copy 2 forms.

    • If you have a continuous-feed printer, you may need to adjust for the additional thickness due to the copies.
    • If you have a page-oriented printer, it is simpler to print copies separately rather than all at once.
  1. From the File menu, choose Print Forms, and then select 1099s/1096.
  2. For complete instructions, select your version of QuickBooks below.
