Schedule E 1099 checkboxes

Hello, my property manager had a contractor who did some cleaning job on my rental property who charged slightly over $600, so I checked Box A and B on Schedule E and filed my tax.


A. Did you make any payments in 2020 that would require you to file Form(s) 1099?

B. If “Yes,” did you or will you file required Form(s) 1099?


However, I later learned that it's usually the PMs who send these forms (because I paid the PM and the PM paid the contractor, and the invoice also billed to the PM). Should I amend my form to put No on A and clear B? Or it doesn't really matter since the 1099 forms were/will be filed, just not by me?


Thanks in advance for your advice!

You are correct that if any 1099's are required, the property manager will issue them. After all, that's what you pay the PM for.

There is no need for you to amend, correct or change anything on your tax return for this. The only time you amend, is if there will be a change in your tax liability. Changing a yes to a no does not change your tax liability at all.

Thanks, Carl! That made me feel much better. So IRS won't later come back to me and say: you mentioned you had 1099 to file but your TIN hadn't filed any?
