Payer's information would be who paid you for one of your forms for your business, a 1099-K, 1099-NEC, or a 1099-MISC. Go back and check your forms entries. You are missing something. The 1099-NEC is new this year.

•Cash payments for fish (or other aquatic life) purchased from anyone engaged in the trade or business of catching fish (box 1), or

Thank you for your response. My husband does work for his uncle's company and is considered a subcontractor. Meaning, my husband does different jobs for him and he pays him per job. He was given the 1099-NEC this year. Is that the form he should have been given? I didn't have any problems last year but he was given a 1099- Misc. I have double checked the entry and even deleted it and reentered the information and still get the same issue. I do not know what it is wanting me to enter.
