Categorizing "OTHER" INCOME
I am not an employee of any company, nor am I self-employed.
I did some work (some website help and a few property management-type things) to help out a friend (an individual not a company or employer) at varying times this year. I helped him out by doing some of his tasks here at home while he was out of the country a few times during the year. This individual already paid me for what I did early in the year and now wants to pay me for subsequent help I gave. The total for the year will be around $11,000.
1) Where does this income go on my 1040 tax return? Is it considered "regular" income to be put on Line 7 for Wages, salaries, tips? OR, does it go on Line 21 as "Other" income (in which case, what type? Fees for Services? Or what?) I don't know how to categorize it. It wasn't a "job", I wasn't consistently "employed." It was work I did 4 or 5 times over 2016. And I'm not self-employed so it's not something I do for a living.
2) Since this is an individual and not an employer or company, would he still be required to produce a 1099? I thought that was just for companies. This is a friend I did some work for a few times this year.
