IRS Form 1099-MISC Overview

Form 1099-MISC is used to report payments for services performed for a business by people not treated as its employees. Miscellaneous income includes payments made to subcontractors wages, rental payments, prizes, awards, or substitute payments in lieu of dividends. Employers must file Form 1099-MISC for non-employees compensated $600 or more for the year services were rendered. However, if a recipient works for multiple companies and earns a combined total of $600 he or she will not receive a 1099-MISC but will still be required to report income tax. A 1099-MISC Form, reporting miscellaneous income, must be provided to the recipient and a copy e-filed to the IRS.
