Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.
Hi, thanks for your time.
If you were only compensated for reimbursement for your expenses then you would be able to offset the 1099 income with your expenses and not need to pay tax on this income.
I don't have receipts for what expenses I did have, but the compensation was more than that due to the surgery and recovery time I had to do.
You just need to compute your mileage and get receipts from the pharmacy.
Any non taxable income should not be re[portted on the 1099
So if they send me a 1099 with the amount they compensated me for, is that considered inaccurately filed?
I just don't understand how surgery compensation is treated like self-employment income. I apologize for the confusion.
It is not considered taxable income
Ok. I will have to deal with the clinic if I do receive one then. Thank you for your time.
kindly accept my answer
