Missing 1099 Information

This report will show any paid vendors or contractors who are missing either an Employer Identification Number or a Social Security Number in their W-9 Information section. This information is not needed to add or pay a vendor, but is required to issue a 1099. You cannot create a 1099 for a vendor if W-9 information is missing.

This report is found under Reports > 1099 Contractor Reports > Missing 1099 Information.

To complete the missing information:

  • Click the vendor name in the report to go to the vendor information screen.
  • Click Edit in the top right corner.
  • Enter the missing information.
  • Click Save.

You can also click the Edit link at the end of the vendor row to go directly to the vendor’s edit screen.
