Yes. 

 

Such payments are reported as an expense under Contract Labor on Schedule C.

Anyone you pay $600 or more per year  must be issued a 1099-misc in January.  Have them fill in a form W-9 before you pay them anything so you have the required information later when you need it ... if you don't the deduction will not be allowed.
