They are claiming that EVERY check written to me but be included on a 1099 ! I understand my "income" being included but when I loan them money upfront to pick up items and I give them my receipts, they pay me back that doesn't seem right for me to be taxed on MY OWN money. It's like a loan being paid back.
Another thing. I had to book travel for other employees who are 1099'd. They sent me the $ to book the travel which is all in the names of the performers not me. They told me they have to 1099 me for that as well and for me to claim it as an expense on my taxes, but how can that be done if the travel is not in my name?
This just doesn't sound right to me.
All the comments about seeking legal help are ok, but you've asked a question about your taxes. Since you have been issued a 1099-MISC, the IRS has it also. So you are obliged to report it on your tax return. Just complete a Schedule C in the section on Business Income, report the 1099-MISC income, and then include everything you spent in the Business Expenses section.
