Family Caregiver

Today TaxMama® hears from KP in the TaxQuips Forum, with this question.  “My sister-in-law received a 1099-Misc with an amount in box 6 for medical health care payments for providing care for her husband, a veteran receiving VA benefits. I know the amount is taxable to the federal government, but is it subject to social security […]

Using Attachments

Today TaxMama® hears from Mahakavi in the TaxQuips Forum with a couple of questions – but we’ll only answer one of them here today. “TaxMama® keeps telling us to attach a statement to the tax return. How do you attach statements when you’re using commercial software?”

Outsourced Payments

Today TaxMama® hears from Lloyd in the TaxQuips Forum with a little problem. “I paid someone in Thailand approximately $15K a year to do data entry for me. IRS is not happy that I did not issue a 1099-misc to her. Until now, she did not have ITIN or Social Security Number. However, this year […]

Corps and 1099s

Today TaxMama® hears from Bill in the TaxQuips Forum.  Bill insists that for payments made in 2012, we do not have to send 1099s to corporations. TaxMama says, she just read that corporations DO get 1099’d. Who is correct?

Sloppy 1099ing

Today TaxMama® hears from Gary in the TaxQuips Forum who has this problem. Let me paraphrase:  “Gary has already filed his LLC’s tax return, reporting all his income properly.

Getting Double 1099s

Today TaxMama® hears from Stephanie in the Tax Quips Forum with a very valid concern. “I’m concerned about this requirement that PayPal report my sales numbers via the 1099-K. The clients I work with will also have to send me a 1099-MISC. Won’t that be income that is double reported? Usually I just enter my […]

Hiring Grandma

Today TaxMama hears from Jason in the TaxQuips Forum who wants to get it right. Let me summarize his issue – and you can read the details, here. He has hired Grandma to provide child-care in his home. He’s pretty sure that he is not required to treat her as an employee, according to various […]

Antique Coins

Today TaxMama hears from Dallas in the Tax Quips Forum, with a disturbing question. “My mother has been collecting antique gold coins for years now. She got a call from one of her dealers telling that at the first of the year, the tax laws for these coins will change.  They will no longer be […]

Kicking Back Commissions

Today TaxMama hears from SB in the TaxQuips Forum with a common problem. “As a real estate professional, I had to kick back some commissions to a buyer to close a sale. But I am getting the 1099-MISC for the full commission. Can I give the buyer a 1099-MISC for the commission I paid her? […]

Using the Clubhouse

Today TaxMama hears from Linda in the TaxQuips Forum with this concern.  “I have a very small business teaching classes and sometimes use a local clubhouse as a venue. Some participants pay me directly; others pay the clubhouse. The clubhouse keeps 10% for the use of the clubhouse and sends me the rest of the […]
