You are correct, the amount the company paid you in 2018 should definitely be on a 2018 Form 1099-MISC, not a 2019 form.

I would recommend that you contact the company regarding this form, they may have used a form for the wrong year and didn't even realize it.  They will need to issue you a 2018 1099-MISC and send in a corrected 2019 Form 1099-MISC.

Was this for income you received in 2019?

Is it possible they paid you in January of 2019 for work done in December of 2018?

THEY PAYED ME IN 2019 BUT IT WAS NOT THE AMOUNT ON THE FORM.  THE AMOUNT ON THE FORM IS WHAT THEY PAID ME IN DECEMBER WHEN I STARTED WITH THEM.
