You can import 1099-MISC recipient details from XERO in two ways. One way is to directly connect with your XERO account from TaxBandits and pull up the 1099-MISC recipient payment details. The other is to download the 1099 Report in XERO and import the data file into TaxBandits.

Before you import, you first need to ensure in XERO that the 1099 Report is generated. Check out the 1099 Report under Accounting -> Reports

  1. Log in to TaxBandits, and go to Home >> Forms tab.
  2. Under 1099 Forms - Federal & State Filing, choose Form 1099-MISC and click File Now.
  3. Choose Tax Year, and click Next.

  4. Click Start Now under Import from XERO.
  5. Options to Connect & Import and Import XERO template are shown.
