This is the first year I’ve dealt with a 1099 form thanks to the MPP. I also have a “regular hourly job”. My earnings for writing here; a whopping $15.63 in royalties (of course the monthly membership fee of $5.00 deducted, puts a positive spin on it). I usually do my own taxes, but, this year I used a service mainly because of the 1099. I was surprised to find out that the IRS had done away with the 1040A and 1040EZ (which I usually used) forms. Nowhere did I hear about this; yet, everywhere I turned, there was some story about Trump’s blasted wall.
