A Form 1099 is a type of income return used to report earnings annually to the IRS.
You will get a 1099 form in the mail if you received certain types of income during the year. Generally, you will have to report the information from a 1099 on your tax return.
The United States IRS issuance threshold is $600, so if you made over $600 you should receive a 1099 if you reside in the US.
