I'm using the desktop version of Home and Business on a Mac. My spouse received a 1099-MISC. I entered the information. Then we received a 1099-NEC with a note stating we should use the NEC instead of the MISC. We removed the entry for the MISC and entered the NEC. Now, when trying to file, I keep getting the error that I need to fill in the "Payer's federal EIN" for a 1099-MISC. When I go to Forms, the MISC form does not show in the left pane but the right pane shows an empty MISC form with the EIN box highlighted. I can't find any delete button or option to delete. I tried ignoring this error and moving forward to file. After inputting all the final bank and payment info, it returns to that error and won't let me file. Please help.
With the 1099-MISC showing in the right pane, select the Form tab in the top bar and then select Remove Form 1099-MISC (Untitled) from the drop down menu. See the attached screen shot for how this appears.
Since the Form 1099-MISC is not showing in the left column, you may have trouble getting it to appear in the right pane. If so, use the Open Form tab to get it to display.
How do you delete this on the mobile app or regular log in for turbo tax? There are no document options and from my research it says to go into tools and delete the document but tools is nowhere to be found. I keep trying to file and it won't let me as it wants 1099-NEC form to be filled out. It also mentions spouse which I am single. I double checked my primary info and it also shows single. Not sure how to delete this.
You may need to enter the EIN for the 1099-MISC in order to get it in so you can then delete it. That was suggested by another user above.
If you received a 1099-misc and a 1099-NEC, you may need to enter both tax reporting documents into the software, unless one of them is voided. If they are both issued for the same information, you may need to go back to the payer, asking them to void the one that is no applicable if both are not needed in the return.
The 1099-NEC is used this year to report nonemployee compensation (used to be reported on the 1099-MISC), however, the 1099-MISC was changed this year to remove the nonemployee compensation box and the 1099-NEC was created new this year to be used to report only "nonemployee compensation"
i only received a 1099-NEC.
last year I received a 1099-MISC.
i do not have any information to enter on the 1099-MISC and I cannot make it go away.
I did enter the 1099-NEC correctly
Once you enter the EIN for the 1099-MISC, then you can delete it.
Form 1099-NEC. Newly created for tax year 2020-
The PATH Act, P.L. 114-113, Div. Q, sec. 201, accelerated the due date for filing Form 1099 that includes nonemployee compensation (NEC) from February 28 to January 31 and eliminated the automatic 30-day extension for forms that include NEC. Beginning with tax year 2020, use Form 1099-NEC to report nonemployee compensation.
Redesigned Form 1099-MISC.
Due to the creation of Form 1099-NEC, we have revised Form 1099-MISC and rearranged box numbers for reporting certain income. Form 1099-MISC no longer contains a box for non-employee compensation. That box has been moved to the 1099-NEC for reporting purposes
