Reproducing the Issue

Example in app Run Statutory Reports (App id F1515) follow steps in help documentation Withholding Tax (1099-MISC) Report


There could be a number of causes:

  • No withholding specific document 

  • Document not cleared 
    For Example from Help Documentation Withholding Tax (1099-NEC) Report
    the following is stated:
    The withholding tax report is generated based on the information collected from supplier documents, for example, supplier cleared invoices, supplier credit memos, and open down payments.

  • Document is available, clearing is done but wrong withholding tax codes are used


  • Check Journal Entry, In app Check Withholding Tax Settings and Simulate Calculation, simulate a posted document

  • In App Manage Supplier Line Items check status of journal Entry

  • Use correct report for withholding tax codes for supplier.
