A business may payout for independent contractors less than $600 without filing form 1099, my question is may a business payout for multiple contractors less than $600 and it will not turn on a red flag to the irs?
No. If you are following the rules there is no problem.
Payments to non employees will not go under Wages and Salaries, which is for employees. Will go under Other which includes Legal and Professional fees. Hopefully, you have correctly classified these workers as non-employees.
