Error: You cannot change the level of an account that is associated with a 1099 category. To change the level of this account, you must first delete its association in the 1099 Preferences.

When trying to change the level of a subaccount in QuickBooks, it errors with "You cannot change the level of an account that is associated with a 1099 category. To change the level of this account, you must first delete its association in the 1099 Preferences."

How to fix it
To delete the association in the 1099 Preferences in QuickBooks:
  1. Choose the Edit menu, select Preferences.
  2. Click on Tax: 1099 and then click on the Company Preferences tab.
  3. In the 1099 Category, look for the one that has an account associated with it.
    • If only a single account is showing, click in the Account column and choose none.
    • If Multiple accounts... is showing, click the down arrow in the Account column and choose Multiple accounts... then uncheck the expense account that you are trying to change the level for.

If this solution does not resolve the issue, you can read discussions and post messages and questions relating to your issue on the Intuit QuickBooks Community site. You can also review other available QuickBooks support options for additional guidance.
