Preparing and Printing 1099 Forms

As of July 12, 2021, this "Learn Veracross" site has been deprecated.  It will remain live through December 2022, but will no longer be updated. All knowledge content has moved to the new Veracross Community.  Please update your bookmarks.

Here is the new version of this article in the Veracross Community.


The Veracross Accounting system possesses the capability of recording 1099 information, and calculating and printing 1099s for all designated vendors.

The beginning of this workflow requires that a vendor be flagged as requiring a 1099, and that a Federal Tax ID and 1099 Payment Code be assigned to the vendor.   All subsequent Accounts Payable invoices created for these vendors will inherit their 1099 properties.  However, whenever necessary, a user can override the 1099 properties for a specific AP invoice.

The next step in the workflow occurs when payments are generated for these vendor invoices.  The resulting disbursement records inherit the 1099 properties from the associated AP invoices.   As with the AP Invoices, a user can override the 1099 properties for a specific disbursement.

Finally, at year end,  there is a process established that accumulates annual 1099 information for all vendors, and  prints the 1099 forms.  These amounts are based upon 1099-related disbursement items posted during the calendar year.

Step 1: Review and validate 1099 Disbursement Items

As noted above, the amounts presented on 1099 forms will result from totals derived from disbursements made to vendors.  Validate the 1099 amounts assigned to these source transactions by following the directions below:

  1. On the Accounts Payable homepage, under the Other Reports section, select the Disbursement Items – 1099 link.
  2. Set the date range for Posting Date to reflect calendar year begin and end dates
  3. Run the query
  4. Validate the 1099 amounts for each transaction presented
  5. There are 2 options available for correcting data on the report.  First, if an item has a 1099-reportable amount and its deemed not to be reportable; remove the 1099 Code from the disbursement item. On the other hand, if an item is lacking a 1099-reportable amount and it should be reportable; assign an appropriate 1099 Code to the item.

 Step 2: Initialize 1099 Amounts for Vendors

Before you update the amounts for 1099 for the current year, you must zero out all 1099 data from prior years that still exists in the vendor’s record.

  1. On the Accounts Payable homepage, under the Processing section, select the Vendor Maintenance Processing link.
  2. Specify Option code:          1 – 1099 Preparation
  3. Specify 1099 Prep Option:  Zero 1099 Amounts?
  4. Enable all of the 1099 Categories (see below)
  5. Click Add Vendor/Invoice Processing.

Step 3: Calculate and Update 1099 Amounts for Vendors

Once all the invoices are correctly marked as Reportable for 1099 or not, this function may be run to calculate the current 1099 Amounts for Vendors.

  1. On the Accounts Payable homepage, under the Processing section, select the Vendor Maintenance Processing link.
  2. Specify Option code:       1 – 1099 Preparation.
  3. Specify  Begin Date and End Date – these must represent the posting date range for the disbursement items being totaled.  This is usually January 1 to December 31st of the calendar year for which you are printing forms.
  4. Enable all of the 1099 categories (see below)
  5. Click Add Vendor/Invoice Processing.

 Step 4: Print 1099 Forms

  1. On the Accounts Payable homepage, under the Processing section, select Print 1099-MISC Report or Print 1099-NEC Report 
  2. Select the Action Menu and choose Batch Print Documents.
  3. Select the Record ID Field of Org ID.
  4. Select the Document of Vendor IRS Form 1099-MISC or 1099-NEC and select Go.
  5. Click Print to PDF and print your forms.

It is HIGHLY recommended that you initially print the 1099s on plain paper before using the actual forms.  You can use this initial draft to verify that they are properly formatted and aligned.

Configuration of 1099 Forms

If any format changes are necessary for your 1099-MISC form or 1099-NEC form, there are two possible locations to start from.  First, you can navigate to the Documents Homepage on the Axiom side or on the Accounting side navigate to the System Homepage, View Configuration column, Accounting Document Listing. (you may have to scroll down)  

On the Parameters Tab, there is the list of fields that are available to be moved if needed.  The VALUE field represents the Y-Axis on the document, the numbers represent the length in inches from the top. Update the value as needed. 

There are additional fields that allow you to control your school name, address, etc. that will display on the 1099 forms.  These are available in the System Parameters Workspace in the System folders.  The query to use is titled 1099 System Parameters:
