Important: Payments you make to vendors using a credit or debit card, or a third-party provider like PayPal, aren’t included on a 1099-MISC. These payments are reported by your financial institution and you don’t need to report them.

To prevent duplicate reporting to the IRS, your vendors’ 1099-MISC should only include cash, check, EFT, ACH, and direct deposit payments.


  1. From the Expenses menu, select Vendors.
  2. Select Prepare 1099s.
  3. Select Let’s get started or Continue your 1099s.
  4. Follow the steps to prepare 1099s. The report you’re looking for is on “Step 4: Review – Check that the payments add up.”

By default, the list is filtered to show only vendors that meet the $600 threshold.


The Excluded column displays the total of a vendor’s excluded payments for the year. Select the dollar amount in the Excluded column to open the report.

Tip: If a vendor is missing from the list, you can change the filter to find them.

  1. Above the Contractor column, select the Filter icon.
  2. From the Type of contractors drop-down menu, select 1099 contractors below threshold or Contractors not marked for 1099.

As always, if you have questions or run into problems with creating the 1099-MISC forms, give your accounting specialist a call at PayTech to make sure you meet the deadline this month.
