1099 Question on Box 6 and Box 7.

Preparing 1099 amount for payments made to a horse boarding farm. When we receive the bill, amounts charged for vet visits and medicines are coded to our expense account, "Vet Expenses," overnight boarding is coded to "Boarding Expenses," etc. We also have Vets that we pay directly for their services. We have mapped "Vet Expenses" to appear in Box 6, however we're finding that for entities where we have paid for boarding etc. (amounts in excess of $600) those amounts are being reported correctly in Box 7, but if the amount of vet services is less than $600 for that same vendor, the amount will not be reported in Box 6.  I think that the total should be reported regardless of the split between types of payments. We can't just report the payments for vet services in Box 7 as we have other direct payments to Vets that should be reported in Box 6. Anyone else run into this?

People come to Accountants Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
