    1099s from BeFree Merchants
    I had two BeFree merchants in 2007 where I earned more than the $600 threshold required to issue a 1099. I haven't received a 1099 from either of them which I would have by now if they were mailed by the 1/31 deadline. I believe in the past the 1099s were issued by the merchant, not by BeFree which makes me wonder if BeFree has provided the necessary information to their merchants to prepare the 1099s.

    It's no big deal for me since I keep my own records so I know how much to report from those merchants (and another one that I was paid less than $600), but I suspect some people won't report the income on their tax return if they don't receive a 1099.

    As the owner of BeFree, CJ could be subjecting themselves to a fine for non-compliance since the checks came from BeFree, not from the merchants.

    Every year I am still getting 1099's from merchants in March. Linkshare always seems to have to send out a corrected one. I guess some don't all think the deadlines apply to them and I end up doing my taxes at the last minute. Plus if many people are mailing them on 1/31 it could take longer than a week to get them.

    I wonder if anyone already got his/her 1099 from IHG?

    I sent them an email, but to no avail.

    No 1099 from IHG. You are still required to report your income.

    Of course - I will report the income.
    I just wonder what happens if IHG sends the 1099 after filing the taxes.
    I want to make sure the IRS knows that this specific income is already reported. Any ideas?

    You don't have anything to worry about as long as the total income reported by all sources doesn't exceed the income you report on your tax return.
