Fields

Descriptions

Alternate name

This field is useful for businesses "doing business as" (DBA) the vendor name, but that need another name on the Form 1099-MISC/NEC document. When an alternate name is specified, this name displays in the Address 1 field of the 1099-MISC/NEC file. The information stored in the Address 1 field on this screen is recorded in the Address 2 field in the 1099-MISC/NEC file if that field is blank in this screen.

Amount indicator

Enter the Form 1099-MISC/NEC payment indicator. If the check box above was not selected, this field is not used. Normally, contractors specify "7" for the non-employee compensation box.

Social security #

Enter the vendor's Social Security Number, if the vendor is an individual. This number will only display here, on the Vendor 1099 Report, and in the 1099-MISC/NEC Processing screen and Period End menu.

Federal tax ID

Enter the vendor's federal tax ID number, if the vendor is a company rather than an individual. This number will only display here, on the Vendor 1099 Report, and in the 1099-MISC/NEC Processing screen and Period End menu.
