Setting up Xero

1. What can I do with Xero Integration?

With TaxBandits, you can securely import your 1099 report(s) from your Xero account. You will be able to update any information on your 1099 Forms, e-file them, and transmit them to the IRS.

2. How do I set up my Xero Account to import my 1099 Reports?

In order to get started, turn on your 1099 Reports in your Xero account by going to Reports -> All Reports -> 1099 Reports. Makes sure this option is turned on for all applicable organizations.

In order to generate the 1099 report, the 1099 rules for each organization need to be set up for the vendors.

Add the vendors for your organizations, create bills for each vendor, and pay for each bill. After you’ve completed these steps, your 1099 reports will be available.
