1099 Question

Does anyone know if the 1099 $600 threshold covers amounts earned in a given year or is it for amounts actually paid?

I performed shops in 2013 where commissions exceeded $600, but the payments I received in 2013 were less than $600. The rest of the payments were received in January and February.

It should cover amounts paid within 2013. The money earned in 2013 that was not paid until 2014 will be reported as 2014 income.
Thanks AustinMom - I was waiting on a particular MSC to send a 1099. Now I know why they haven't.
Yes, you only are required to get a 1099-MISC form for payments received in calendar year 2013. (That includes reimbursements, bonuses, any money they paid you period.)

However, a 1099-MISC is NOT needed to file taxes, even if you thing you are getting one. You MUST report ALL income, even if you didn't get a 1099-MISC for the income.
