Contract Work WITHOUT a 1099

I've been working for someone who has said they will not issue a 1099. I have made almost $12,000 from this client. The money was sent via PayPal. What are the next best steps? What, if any, are the repurcusions on me filing taxes with a 1099?

Contract Work WITHOUT a 1099



By law, you are required to enter even $400 of self-employment income whether you receive a 1099 or not.



If your self-employment income was only from cash, personal checks, credit card payments, or cryptocurrency 

Type Schedule C in the Search box and then select the Jump to link. This will take you to where you can enter any cash, personal checks, credit card payments, or cryptocurrency (Form 1099-K) related to your self-employment. You may first be asked some general questions about your business. After you answer them, you’ll be taken to the Let's get income for (your line of work) screen where you can enter this income as Additional Income.
