Created on  | Last modified on 



  • The 1099 year was not closed at the correct time.
  • The 1099 year was closed more than once and is in a future year.

1099 amounts do not include the following:

  • Taxes paid.
  • Discounts taken.
  • Deductions.
  • Payments made by credit card.
  • Payments made for distributions marked as "exempt".

IMPORTANT: Close your 1099 year in Accounts Payable every year-end to keep it up to date. See How do I close the year or the 1099 year in Accounts Payable?


Verify the 1099 year ending date is correct. See How do I verify whether my 1099 year is correct in Accounts Payable?

When the 1099 year is closed the amounts in the This Year field is written to the Last Year field and the Next Year field is written to the This Year field.
If the 1099 year is not closed for several years, the Next Year field will have the payments for several years combined in the amount. When the 1099 year is then closed, the combined amount in the Next Year field is written to the This Year field.

  • Example: The AP Settings, 1099 year ending date is 12/31/2023. Checks written in 2024 updated the Next Year field. Checks written in 2025 before the 1099 year is closed also update the Next Year field. When the 1099 year of 2023 is closed, the combined 2024/2025 amount in the Next Year field is written to the This Year field.
  • A warning message appears during Print Checks, Record Manual/Print Quick Checks, and Record Payments by Credit Card if the Check Date or Payment Date is more than one year after the current 1099 year.
