Payment made to a subcontractor in Quicken Home, Business and Rental Pro

What category do I assign a payment made to a subcontractor in Quicken Home, Business and Rental Property?

    That depends on what the payment was for and on how you track payments in your Quicken instance.  Since the payment was to a "subcontractor" it could be for almost anything. And given that you are using Q Home, Business, & Rental Property it could apply to any of those areas.

    In general, the fact that the payment was to a subcontractor - as opposed to a more "direct" payment - isn't all that relevant UNLESS you have a specific reason.  For example - you need/want to record those payments in a way that will allow you to issue 1099 forms at the end of the year (e.g. for a unincorporated subcontractor., you might need to issue a 1099-NEC form - for non-employee compensation).
