How to set up a vendor to show on the correct 1099 form
The vendor will print on a 1099-Misc form or on a 1099-NEC form based on how the vendor record is set up. Once you determine with your accountant or finance committee under which category of 1099 your Vendor belongs, 1099 Misc or 1099 NEC, you will set them up in each vendor record accordingly.
Go to Ledger & Payables → Vendors → 1099/Checks. The category is selected under the field for Print in 1099 Box.
- For any Vendor who needs a 1099-NEC form, select "Non-Emp Comp."
- For any Vendor who needs a 1099-Misc form, select from any of the other categories.
The Print in 1099 Box selection will determine on which 1099 form the vendor will print. The 1099-Misc Form options are shown in the screenshot below.
