Do I need to receive a 1099 form from them?
I've been searching for an answer to this in threads for hours and my searches always return responses based on a company paying someone......or a company being paid.
Not just a person paying a person.
thanks for any clarification.
Of course since you are not their regular W2 employee then you as contractor need a 1099MISC form them; The basic rule is that your friend as a payer must file a 1099-MISC whenever he she pays an unincorporated independent contractor-that is, an independent contractor who is a sole proprietor or member of a partnership or LLC $600 or more in a year for work done in the course of his/her trade or business. you need to give W9 to your friend so that he can issue you 1099MISC.if you ever find yourself filling out a Form W-9, it generally means that a business or person who is paying you money needs your Social Security number so it can notify the IRS of the amount. The W-9 is used in a wide range of payment situations, but most commonly, taxpayers fill them out when they are working as a freelancer or independent contractor rather than an employee.n ormally, your friend must send out Forms 1099 on or before Jan. 31 of each year for the prior calendar year.any Form 1099 sent to you goes to the IRS too?often a little later..
