One of my clients sent me a 1099 MISC and it seems they included the
totals of all the invoices as non-employee compensation total. They
were parts that I purchased for them and they were noted as
reimbursable expenses on the invoices. Also the sales tax on the
invoice was included as well. Shouldn't they have deducted the amount
of the expenses and the sales tax totals from the final non-employee
compensation amount. I don't want the reimbursed expenses and the
sales tax counted as income since of course they aren't. What the best
way for me to handle this on my taxes? I

Thanks in advance
Adam

Not unusual.



If you can't get them to correct the 1099, then report it as income
and also expense it on your Sch C.

Nope, they did the correct thing.

"Taxes" on line 23, Schedule C.

"Cost of goods sold" from Part III of Schedule C.

Other expenses on Part II of Schedule C.

The answers to all your questions in the instructions for
Schedule C, in Pub. 334, and in various other publications
that will be mentioned in these.

There are a few "gotchas", but not many. One of these being
that if they reimbursed you for the entire cost of certain
meals, you may be only able to deduct half that cost. You
will have to follow IRS rules for mileage as well.

Good luck--

Steve
