#1;as you have no other deductible expenses against the 1099 income, I guess you need to report it on 1040 line21 however, you need to pay seca tax on Sch SE aslongas the amount reported on Sch SE line 2, 3 is $400 or exceeds $400. You usually issue 1099-MISCs if you have or manage a trade or business and have paid $600 or more to an individual or partnership (or certain corporations).i guess you can contact Genentech for solution ‘ you may correct the 1099 and bill you or etc.they’d send a copy of 1099/1096 to the irs/your state.
