Creating Tax Records from Report

  1. After running the report, the View Report page will be displayed.
  2. You can now view some details regarding the 1099 data.
    • If there are any contacts that were included in the report for which SkySlope Books does not have tax records, they will be listed first. The red info icon to the left of their name indicates “missing tax record details.”

Modifying Compensation Number from Report

  1. To modify the amount, click on the Box 1 field.

  2. Enter the new amount.
  3. The amount is now updated.


Modifying the Type of 1099 Report
