titleHow do I set a vendor to receive a 1099?

Form 1099 reports miscellaneous income paid to independent contractors (nonemployee compensation). If you've paid an independent contractor $600 or more or royalties over $10 during a calendar year, you should file Form 1099 for that vendor. Most churches and organizations file Form 1099 as a part of year-end procedures.

Any vendor with invoices marked as 1099 and paid in the selected tax year receives a 1099. If the vendor is marked as a 1099 vendor during setup, all invoices for that vendor are marked as 1099 purchases unless you clear the 1099 option when entering invoices. For vendors not marked as 1099 vendors, you can mark an invoice as a 1099 purchase when entering invoices.

titleWhat can I do if I'm asked to create a new account while tax e-filing?

Maybe your ACS program has been installed on different computers since you e-filed last year. But, this year when you try to tax e-file, you're being prompted to create a new account.

Here's what you can do to avoid having to establish a new account (which would cause you to lose your e-filing history):

  1. Click Create Account.
  2. Enter the email address and password associated with the account as well as your organization's site information.
  3. Click OK.

If you can't remember the password, click Forgot Password? and a new password will be sent to the email address associated with the account.
