Canton, GA asked in Tax Law for Georgia

Q: 1099 Form

I have a question about the tax,

I recently just started working with this company but this company did not ask for my SSN number or address or driver license nothing, all they have is my name

they are paying me with check and they told me to report tax with 1099 form but this company said they are not giving out 1099 and they told me I have to do it myself

in this case, do I really need to report tax or I don't have to? if yes how do I do it? because I'm not sure how it works

A: Not having a 1099 does not mean you can skip reporting the income made. As you likely are aware this is considered self-employment work (if you've made $600 or more) and should be tracked/ reported accordingly. You can do so by filing out a schedule C. Here you will be able to account for the cash earned and any expenses incurred to earn that income.
