Yes, you can use TurboTax Home & Business to prepare and e-file forms 1099-MISC.

 

To prepare forms 1099-MISC in TurboTax Home & Business, save your open return and start a new return.

  • Click on Start a New return
  • On the next page, click on the radio button next to Prepare W-2s and 1099s
  • On the same page, you will then be given a choice between preparing your forms Online or using your desktop.
  • We recommend doing it online as you can e-file for free. You can still print the forms to send to your employees or contractors.
  • Click Choose Online and you will be taken to the TurboTax Quick Employer Forms (QEF) website.
  • Sign in with your TurboTax username and password. If you do not have an account, click Create Account to create a new account. Note carefully the username and password as you need then if you need to retrieve the forms later.
  • After signing in, click on Create New Form
  • On the next page, choose the type of forms you wish to prepare then click Continue to begin entering information for your forms.

Purchased Home and Business Desktop, when I click to enter online nothing happens. Been on the phone with support for hours and had the same issue last year. Logged into Quick Employer Forms but it kept asking me to purchase Business. Purchased Business and it still would not work. Today is the last day to file and Customer Support, while awesome, was unable to figure out why Quick Employer Forms keeps requiring a purchase after being emailed and purchased.

There was no online or desktop option. It is not allowing any option to e-file 1099 forms for subcontractors. Any ideas on how to be able to accomplish that? Thanks in advance.
