1099-MISC for Garnishment
I cannot find any guidance in the 1099 instructions on the IRS website regarding how to deal with reporting for garnishments, so I hope you can help me. We received a non-periodic garnishment to withhold funds from a vendor (defendant). We have to remit payment to the plaintiff's attorney. For 1099-MISC reporting, do we issue a 1099 to the Plaintiff, the Plaintiff's attorney, or nobody?
