Can I include 1099-misc forms to others in my business income?
I'm a Beachbody Coach. Since it is a multi-level marketing business I have signed up several of my family members to be coaches underneath me. I put a lot of hours into my business but other people, like my mom and my husband, don't work the business. This year I earned about $10,000, and my mom and husband also received 1099-misc forms of about 600 and 1000, respectively. My mom said that her accountant was going to include her income on her tax return but report it as a "nominee distribution" to me. I'm not sure what to do with my husband's income. Can I include it with my business income? Or does he need his own business on our tax return?
