First, you need QuickBooks Online PLUS plan, to have prepare and print 1099s feature.
To assign more than one account from your company Chart of Account:
From the home page screen > go to blue navigation bar on the left > click Vendors tab > Prepare 1099s button (upper right side) > Assign Accounts > Select the box number > Under Account, click Select Multiple… from the drop down menu > Select from list > Add to Include in 1099 Box> OK > OK.
Helpful tip: after you click OK, under Accounts it’ll just say “Select Multiple…” , it won’t list all the accounts that you had selected.
Question: We like QBO to generate 1099 form for contractors who work for us, then prepare end of year statements to send to them and file with IRS. Which QBO will we need to prepare and print 1099s at the year end?
Answer: You will need to subscribe to QuickBooks Online Plus. You cannot generate 1099s if you currently have Simple Start or Essentials,
