Question

I have a question about missing 1099s Forms. If I'm self-employed and don't have 1099s from everyone I worked for, how can I complete my return?

Answer

Regarding missing 1099s Forms, if you’re expecting a Form 1099-MISC from a company, it’s best to wait for it before you complete your return.

If you should have received a 1099-MISC but didn’t, you’re still required to report all of your self-employment income. You can complete your return without receiving the missing 1099s Forms by reconstructing your income from these:

  • Bank records
  • Copies of cashed checks
  • Other documents

A payer isn’t required to submit a 1099-MISC if you made less than $600.
