The issuer of the 1099 does not want to make a new 1099 because the income I earned in 2015 and reported in 2015 was paid to me in 2016. Thus, the 1099 MISC form that they gave me include monies earned in 2015 and those earned in 2016. If I report the 1099-MISC income that's listed on the form then I'll be paying taxes on the 2015 income twice. I did notice that I can report a negative amount in the General Business category, thus taking out the income that I already paid taxes on last year. Is that what I should do?
