As an independent contractor
who works off-site for a company, it can be really tough to get problems straightened out. So often your contact at the company knows little about the invoicing process beyond to whom to pass your invoices. When there's a problem with your 1099-MISC
(it's late or it's wrong), you may have trouble getting it resolved. Have you ever had trouble getting your 1099? How did you resolve the situation? Share Your Story
- Out of the blue after being divorced for over 11/2 years my x-wife sends me a 1099 for 9700.00, I'm a contractor for 20+ years and just caught up on 9 years of taxes. Im about to file my 2010, 11, and 12 taxes and don't know how to handle this. She also sent me a 1099 for 9600.00 for 2011. She won't give me any reason other than she needed to dump some of her income to max out on earned income credit, I've tried numerous times to get through to the irs only to be placed on hold and shuffled from dept to dept. Thanks

What a Pain
- When my 1099 significantly understated my earnings, I kept asking my client about it starting in early March. She kept saying she was checking on it, but I don't think she actually started checking until April. I think they got the new one to me on April 12. It was especially annoying because I had to nag about something that was going to make me pay MORE taxes. But I didn't want to get audited.
