We have a number of candidates we have been flying in town ...

Resolved Question:

We have a number of candidates we have been flying in town to interview for a job opening. Some of the expenses exceed $600 - would this be reportable on a 1099? What if we end of hiring the candidate?

Interview expenses that are paid for candidates are not considered taxable income and do not need to be reported on a 1099. See the IRS links below:

See interview expense allowances on page 43 -
