If you use unincorporated vendors, such as outside consultants or
subcontractors, you need to send a 1099-MISC form to those who are paid more
than a specific amount per year. Who should receive Form 1099-MISC?
If you send Form 1099-MISC to any vendors, you can set up QuickBooks to
track all 1099-related payments to each vendor. Then at the end of the year,
you can print Forms 1099-MISC and 1096 or e-file Form 1099-MISC (Form 1096 is not required when you e-file) directly from QuickBooks.
Before you add a 1099 vendor, make sure QuickBooks is
set up for 1099 tracking.
Verify that the 1099 feature is turned on in QuickBooks.
Add the person as a vendor.
Turn the person into a 1099 vendor.
Create an expense
account for the payments you will make to this person.
