Uh oh! On top of all the other tax changes for 2011, the IRS has changed the physical 1096 form. Now when you print your 1096 form, there’s a X that’s not in the right place which will make the IRS unhappy.

We’re working on getting you a fix ASAP, and we’ll let you know as soon as we’ve got an update you can download. Subscribe to the support article to be the first on your block to know that the fix is out, and check back here for details.

As you may have heard, the IRS has new requirements for the 1099-MISC form. For the 2011 tax year, some forms of payments from 1099-MISC will be reported on a new third-party form 1099-K. You can find out more here:

Now the important part: Don’t panic! We’re here for you. We’re making changes in QuickBooks to support these new requirements and help you with this transition. Details are coming in an email you’ll be soon. We’ll be updating this page regularly as we continue our progress, so you can check back here or follow us on Twitter (@QuickBooksMac) or Facebook (
