Can I access 1099 forms I created last year?

 

How do I access my prior-year Quick Employer Forms?

Quick Employer Forms is designed to make the creation of Employer Forms and the filing process smooth and hassle-free. Each year as part of your filing experience, we encourage you to download and save a PDF of your completed Quick Employer Forms.

 

After you file, we also make it easy to access your current-year forms in Quick Employer Forms through October 31. This gives you time to download and store a PDF of your forms.

 

You can easily save a copy of your completed forms by either of the above methods for free.

 

When next year’s version of Quick Employer Forms is released, you can access your prior-year returns by purchasing TurboTax Business or Home and Business for CD/Download, TurboTax Self Employed, or TurboTax Live Self Employed. When you do, you'll be able to view, print, or download your prior-year forms for previous tax years.

 

 

Here is the link when available :   https://quickemployerforms.intuit.com/welcome.htm?intuit_apikey=prdakyresSmn44AuZ4SeYfyHDNAJegg4yuhE...

 

FYI ... IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO KEEP COPIES OF THE FORMS FOR 5 YEARS PER THE IRS RULES ... ALWAYS KEEP A PAPER COPY AND A PDF  SO YOU ARE IN COMPLIANCE WITH THESE REGULATIONS ... DO NOT EXPECT TO HAVE ACCESS TO THEM THRU A THIRD PARTY.

Can I access 1099 forms I created last year?

I'm not sure I trust what TurboTax says about their Quick Employer Forms.  If you enter data, it might disappear instead of being saved (as promised).

  

On about January 10, 2020, I (eventually) figured out how to enter payee data at the TurboTax web pages for eventual printing and eFiling of IRS Forms 1099-MISC (block 7, NEC Compensation) due tomorrow, January 31, 2020.  [For my 2019 returns, I upgraded to TTax Home & Business -- specifically because I wanted the advertised ability to eFile my 1099-MISC forms and know that my current 2019 data would be saved online for quick & easy transfer to next year.]

(1) It turned into a time-wasting hassle to (eventually) discover that the ability to enter 1099-MISC info via the online web pages could NOT be accessed from my freshly-created and therefore existing 2019 TTax file in my desktop computer. Instead, when first opening TTax I had to click the "Start a new return" button and from there choose to enter 1099-MISC (or W2, etc.) data. That worked and I manually entered data for about 30 payees. I chose not to eFile at that time (TTax FAQs explain that my data would be saved online for later eFiling and for transfer to next year). Instead of immediately eFiling, I opted to wait until the end of January (i.e., today, 01/30/2020) in case errors needed to be corrected before eFiling. [NOTE -- There was NO "sign out" link or button available on any of the screens that appeared for me, so I simply closed the browser window. Chrome browser.]

(2) Today, 01/30/2020, I am trying to get back to my previously-entered 1099-MISC data that is supposed to be stored someplace within my online account at TTax ... ... ... and, after successfully logging in with my username and password, I cannot find any of my previously-entered data. The option to enter brand new data appears, but NO saved data from a couple of weeks ago. AARRGGH! A link to previously-saved data does NOT appear when I use the "Start a new return" button when TTax first loads. I cannot find a link to my already-entered data when I go back into my already-started 2019 tax file that's stored in my desktop computer. AARRGGH!

Now I wonder why I wasted my time and money upgrading my TTax product so that I could (supposedly) enter and eFile 1099-MISC forms via TTax to the IRS.
