By default, QuickBooks sets each Vendor record to “Not eligible to receive a 1099.” So, if you have Vendors that may need to receive a 1099, you’ll have to set each Vendor record accordingly.
To set a Vendor to be eligible to receive a 1099, while in the Vendor Center double click on the Vendor (1), click the Tax Settings tab (2), conﬁrm the proper Tax ID is in the Vendor Tax ID ﬁeld (3), check the Vendor eligible for 1099 checkbox (4), and click the OK button (5).
