  2. Really enjoyed listening to Tom’s 5 Points with Janice.

    I wanted to clarify one comment Tom made when asked about sole proprietorship taxes. He said that amounts under $600 did not need to be reported to the IRS. What Tom meant is that a client must report amounts paid to the freelancer over $600 on a Form 1099MISC. A copy goes to the IRS and another copy to the freelance writer. The writer, in turn, reports this income on their tax return (Schedule C for sole proprietorships). The freelancer must report ALL income earned from every client, even if he or she does not receive a 1099MISC from the client.

    For example, if Tom was paid $250 by XYZ magazine, Tom must add $250 to his reported income on his Schedule C, even though he has no Form 1099MISC from XYZ magazine.

    I hope that helps!
