My internet is slow this morning, but I will get the information for you.
Until this year we were require to give 10999 MISC only to proffessional lawyers etc. but this year is very confusing .
The instructions and requirements for form 1099-misc can be found at http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/i1099msc.pdf. If your subcontractor is an individual to whom you paid more than $600.00, you must provide a form 1099. If your payment was to a corporation or limited liability company, you are not required to provide a form 1099, but may do so.
