A 1099 form is a statement given to vendors showing them how much the County paid them for services that they provided to the County, during the previous calendar year. By law, if you received more than $600 in compensation from the County, for any service that you provided to the County, and your company is not incorporated, you will receive a 1099 tax form. There are several exceptions which include law firms and medical institutions which receive 1099s even if they are incorporated.
The County must report all payments made to 1099-vendors, to the Federal government (IRS), every year. We must also, by law, provide a copy of this 1099 statement to the actual vendor. If you need to include this 1099 statement in your tax reporting for the previous calendar year, you should take this document with you to your tax provider and they can properly advise you on the recording requirements.
