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?

How do I get copies to my contractors?

Intuit 1099 E-File Service creates PDF copies of all your forms.

Once completed, you can email them or print and mail them to your contractors.

Note: In order to send a 1099 form electronically, the IRS requires you to get the contractor’s permission.

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?

Great question!


QuickBooks Online Plus users can access the 1099 center from the Vendors tab. 


For QuickBooks Desktop, we have teamed up with Tax1099, a preferred partner, to enable e-filing 1099 forms with the IRS.  Simply signup, install the Tax1099 plugin and upload 1099 data to Tax1099 from the QuickBooks Vendors menu.  From there, you can view all vendor data, make any edits and proceed to e-file when you’re ready.  This app works with QuickBooks Windows (2014 and newer) and Windows 7 or newer.


With other versions of QuickBooks, including Online Simple Start and Online Essentials, you can still use the service, but you’ll need to key in your data using our easy entry form. Click the “Get Started” button at the top of the page.  

What if I’m an Intuit Online Payroll customer?


We love our Payroll customers! If you pay your contractors through Payroll, simply log in and go to Taxes & Forms to get started on your 1099 E-filing. Your data imports automatically.


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 state forms?


There is a combined federal / state filing program for 1099s, so many states will receive the forms along with the IRS. However, always double check with your state to see which specific requirements will apply to you, as there may be additional filing needs.


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.
