Edit Payee


Update the payee's information.



The Default Category is used to pre-populate the category of a transaction when using this payee in the Register. If the Employee ID Number is a SSN (Social Security Number) make sure to check the SSN box so the system knows to encrypt it! Form 1099 indicates the payee is to receive a 1099 form and should be included in the 1099-MISC Report.
