Can I receive a Form W-2 and a Form 1099 from the same employer?
If you performed services as both an independent contractor and as an employee, you might receive both forms.
An employer reports all income and bonuses on a W-2. So, you usually won't receive a W-2 and a 1099-MISC from your employer.
If you have employment or services contract, confirm that it says that the services you performed were as:
- An employee
- An independent contractor
- Both an employee and an independent contractor
If you performed all services as an employee:
- Enter your 1099-MISC income as wages on your return.
- File Form 8919 to report income incorrectly reported to you as an independent contractor.
If you performed part of your services as an independent contractor:
- Enter your 1099-MISC income on Schedule C.
- Enter any work-related expenses on Schedule C so you can deduct them.
