Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to report.
You will receive 1099 for the entire amount (that's how it is usually reported). You will claim it on line 21 as other income and the attorney fees can be deducted on Schedule A as part of itemized deduction with certain limitations. To avoid a huge tax bill you can make an estimated payment.
Do you have any questions? Is there anything else I can help you with today?
