We’re happy to do this for you, or you can easily do it yourself. We’ve used Track1099.com for years. The process is very easy, and we’ve never had any issues. If you collect the email addresses for all your recipients, the forms can be delivered by email instead of regular mail. (Yes, email delivery does meet IRS requirements.) And there are video tutorials on their website.

- TAKE SPECIAL NOTICE: The IRS requires you to have an IRS Form W-9 on file for any 1099 recipient. However, it is often hard to get 1099 recipients to fill out this form. Reasons include being too busy, forgetting, or not understanding it has to be done. So we suggest that you withhold their first payment until after they’ve completed the W-9.
- If you have a payroll service such as QuickBooks Payroll or Gusto, we strongly recommend you allow that service to send out 1099s and W-2s for anyone you’ve paid through that service.
- For 1099 recipients you’ve paid with any method outside of QuickBooks Payroll, we strongly recommend that you not use QuickBooks to send out the 1099s. That method is full of glitches. Instead, use Track1099, which works very smoothly. Not using QuickBooks will not “mess up” anything in QuickBooks.
- If you’ve paid W-2 employees without using a payroll service, we recommend you use Track1099 instead of QuickBooks for the same reasons outlined in the last bullet point.
