Important reminder!

Licenses for Payroll CS, Trial Balance CS, and Write-Up CS (but not Engagement CS) permanently expired on March 1, 2017.

For details, see CSA license expiration 2017 – frequently asked questions.

Some processes documented in the Help & How-To Center are no longer applicable, due to the discontinuation of these CSA modules.

The 1099 Items dialog allows you to specify whether 1099 items should be retrieved to line 1 (regular withholding) or Line 2 (backup withholding) of Form 945. By default, all 1099 items are marked as backup withholding in this dialog. To specify that a 1099 item be retrieved as regular withholding, clear the checkbox in this dialog.

From the Payroll Tax Processing window, click the 945 flag icon or choose View > 945 and then choose Setup > 1099 Items.


  • Because the payments that are reported on Form 1099-R are excluded from backup withholding, 1099 items set up for 1099-R Box 4 will not appear here
  • The selections in this dialog pertain to all vendors and employees within this client. If certain employees and vendors require that a 1099 item be listed as backup withholding and others require that the same 1099 item be listed as regular withholding, you will need to create a new 1099 item to be used by those employees and vendors that are the exception. It is not possible to distribute the amounts in this dialog.
