How to Designate a Vendor as a 1099 Vendor in QuickBooks
Ask the Accountant…
Question: When I try to designate a vendor as a 1099 vendor, it is greyed out. How do I change that?
Answer: There has been a recent change to Preferences in QB Premier regarding 1099 status of vendors. Now, you must turn on the 1099 option in "Preferences" > "Tax: 1099" (toward bottom of list) > "Company Preferences" > "Do you file 1099 forms?" > "Yes."
