Even if the employer refuses to give you the Form 1099, you are required to report the income you received from that employer. Hence, I would suggest you to report the income that you received.

Yes, the contractor is required to issue a Form 1099 to you if he paid you $600 or more for services in the ordinary course of his business. He can be penalized for not issuing these forms. However, the non receipt of Form 1099 cannot be a reason for you to not report this income.

I plan on including the income - how do I go about getting him penailzed?
Expert:  RD replied 8 years ago.

You can just inform the IRS that you have no been issued Form 1099 for your services.

Than, they may proceed against him for the penalty.
