  5. Select the Results tab.
The Results tab will show the total payment amount for 1099 vendors for the dates specified. It displays the 1099 box that has been specified on each Vendor's 1099 Distribution button. If the 1099 Vendor field reads No, we'll want to open the Vendor record and mark the box for 1099 Vendor on the Vendor tab.  This query will also show you if the Tax ID # is missing, and if an address is not marked as the default 1099 address.

For more information, refer to How to find and correct missing 1099 activity.


  • Query results can be duplicated if a type of the fields selected on the Output tab exist on the vendor record more than once, such as invoice number or phone numbers (home, work, cell, etc.). For example, if a vendor has 12 invoices in the date range entered in the query criteria, and invoice number is included in the Output tab, the vendor name will appear 12 times, once for each different invoice.
  • For a list of invoices, use the Cash Disbursement Journal entering the same dates and filtering by the query.
  • To prevent duplicate rows, eliminate the field causing duplicates, or run a Year to Date Vendor Analysis Report using this Query.
  • If you have duplicates in your query, run the query through another module such as Export or Reports to suppress the duplicates.
