I am a sole...

I am a sole proprietor with no employees. I am not an LL C or corporation. Can I issue a 1099 to a sub contractor without affecting my status a a sole proprietor?

Accountant's Assistant: The Accountant will know how to help. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.

What else do you need to know?

Accountant's Assistant: Is there anything else the Accountant should be aware of?

I don't think so.

Hello. Thank you for choosing this Q&A service for assistance. My name is Angela. I will be assisting you.

Absolutely you can issue a 1099-MISC to a sub contractor. It will have no bearing on your sole prop business structure. SEE BELOW:

--------------------------------

The Internal Revenue Service requires business owners, including sole proprietors and self-employed taxpayers, to send IRS Form 1099-MISC to certain payees.

REFERENCE SOURCE:

If you do not require further assistance with this matter, I ask that you please take the time to scroll to the top of the page and select 3 or more stars to positively rate my response so that I can receive credit for assisting you. A 5 star rating is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
