Frequently Asked Questions
What does 1099 E-file cost?
The service starts at $14.99, and includes creation and e-filing of up to three 1099-MISC forms.
After three, the price is $3.99 for each additional form. If you have more than 20 forms, we’ll include them at no additional charge. (Prior to January 17th, we offer an early bird discount starting at $12.99 and $2.99 for each additional form).
What are the key 1099 deadlines?
January 1: 1099 E-File Service opens
January 31: Deadline for providing contractors with 1099-MISC copies
January 31: IRS deadline for submitting paper 1099-MISC forms
January 31: IRS deadline for e-filing 1099-MISC forms. (If you’re e-filing with the Intuit E-file Service, we recommend that you submit forms by Jan 30 at the latest so they can be processed by the new IRS due date on Jan 31.)
How do I get copies to my contractors?
Intuit 1099 E-File Service creates PDF copies for all your forms. Once completed you can email or print and mail them to your contractors.
Note: If you use QuickBooks Online, Intuit will send online and printed copies to your contractors after you e-file.
How is my copy sent to the IRS?
We are an approved IRS e-file provider, and we will transmit the form securely and electronically for you.
What if I use QuickBooks? Can I bring over my data?
Yes, you can easily bring over your data if you use QuickBooks Online Simple Start, Essentials or Plus. To start, go to Workers, select the Contractors tab and then select the Prepare 1099s button.
Once you prepare your 1099s, we can e-file with the IRS for you and deliver online and printed copies directly to your contractors.
As an accountant, can I file for multiple clients?
Accountants who use Intuit Online Payroll for Accounting Professionals can file for multiple clients at the discounted price of $15 per client. This includes unlimited 1099-MISC forms for each client on the online payroll service. In addition to filing for current payroll clients, accountants can add “1099-only” clients during the tax filing season.
Which 1099 forms and boxes are supported?
At this time, we only support 1099-MISC forms. We include support for boxes 1-14.
What about the 1096?
Great news…the 1096 is not required when you e-file. One less piece of paper!
Don’t I need to buy those special pre-printed forms with the red ink?
Nope! That’s a big advantage of e-filing—you can send your forms electronically.
