I tried searching and could not find this topic. I only shop for my favorite companies nowadays and I received a notice from Goodwin that they need my info for a 1099.
Do I still claim all of the money they reimbursed me for even if it was not really income? I mean, usually they paid for a meal but I rarely made money on any of their shops... it usually just covered my expenses... including items I never wanted but were required to order (alcohol).
Goodwin does not reimburse for expenses (generally), so you report the gross pay they send you on Schedule C, and then subtract the cost of the food (or whatever) as a business expense on a different line on Schedule C.
