A question about 1099-MISC

Hello,

I am an independent contractor. In 2013, I did some work for someone and I received some payments from him. For 2014 tax year, he never sent me a 1099-MISC form. He has a LLC and he recently contact me asking for my SSN in order to send me a 1099-MISC for 2014 tax year. Apparently, he's just now getting to his 2014 taxes.

My questions are:
- can he still send me a 1099-MISC this late?
- will I have to file it with my 2015 taxes?

I appreciate any help I can get on this topic.

Thanks

#1;As he filed copies of 1099 late with the IRS, the IRS assesses a penalty of $100per late 1099. The penalty is capped at $500K for small businesses, and at $1.5Mper year for larger businesses.
In general, when you do not receive the missing form 1099 in sufficient time to file your tax return timely, you may use the Form 4852. If you receive the missing or corrected Form 1099 after you file your return and a correction is needed, use Form 1040X . If the form is online you can fill it out and print it to mail in. However, your can not efile an amended return, you must mail it in to the IRS.

#2;You need to file 1040X for your 2013 return as you said, the 1099 is for your servcie in 2013. He had to send you 1099 by jan 31 2014.

Question about Independent Contractor Income

I made less than $600 as an Independent Contractor with Company X in 2014.
Therefore I do not HAVE to file a 1099-MISC, and my employer did not send me one.
However, I have to hit $11,670 total income for this year in order to keep my health insurance [my state hasn't expanded medicare].
What's the problem with reporting this income?

I'm also going to overreport tips from my restaurant job. Currently $4900 short of hitting my mark.

Comments?

• However, I have to hit $11,670 total income for this year in order to keep my health insurance [my state hasn't expanded medicare].
What's the problem with reporting this income? ====>> I guess you still need to report all of your income from your self employed businesses. That’s a concern for you who are self-employed, and it makes navigating the new system particularly difficult for you. So, for current / future self-employed worker, Obamacare is likely a great deal– you’ll finally be able to find decent insurance without a traditional employer and often get help paying for it. But first, you need to get through the Obamacare application process. To shop for plans, you need to estimate your annual income( it can vary wildly from month-to-month, year-to-year, depending on their luck landing assignments, contracts, sales, etc:, and getting that right is important: if you overestimate, your subsidy might be too small, but if you underestimate, you might owe the IRS money when tax time comes around. Or even worse, as you live in a state that doesn’t expand Medicaid and your underestimation puts your income below the poverty line, you won’t be eligible for any help paying for insurance.however, Even though navigating Obamacare can be a huge pain for you, the potential benefits are too good to pass up.


I'm also going to overreport tips from my restaurant job.=====> The easiest way to recover your excess payment is through your annual tax filing process. fica taxes were not withheld from the allocated tips.

=======>> You must collect income tax, EE fica taxes on tips reported by employees. You can collect these taxes from an employee's wages or from other funds he or she makes available.You need to assign to your employees in addition to the tips your EEs reported to you for the year; If you allocated tips to your EEs, they are shown separately in box 8 of your EEs’ Form W-2. They are not included in box 1 with your EEs’ wages and reported tips. Because fica taxes were not withheld from the allocated tips, you must report those taxes as additional tax on your return.
