    1. From the Vendor menu, choose Vendor Center.
    2. Right click the name of the vendor and select Edit Vendor
    3. Under the Tax Settings tab, enter the Vendor Tax ID and click to check the box for Vendor eligible for 1099
    4. Click OK to close the Edit Vendor window.

  2. Add each sales rep to your Sales Rep List.

    2. Click the Sales Rep button and choose New.
    3. Choose a name from the Sales Rep Name drop-down list and click OK (or Next, if you're planning to add another sales rep now).

    Note: If the REP field is not on your form, you can customize the form to show it.

  6. Write a check in QuickBooks to pay the commissions you owe.
