So today I received my 1099-misc for 2013 - perfectly normal.

The problem is I received two copies (in separate envelopes). The figures are the same, even the postmarks are the same.

Neither is marked "amended".

Anyone else seeing this?

I didn't get one yet. Unfortunately, the mail delivery in my town is horrible too. I get my neighbor's mail all the time. :(

Set up an S corp and you won't receive one. Saves on taxes.

My operation isn't big enough to worry about that - schedule c is just fine

I just hope they didn't double report to the IRS!

Not necessarily. As in all things tax related- your mileage may vary.

In California, corps (including S corps & LLCs) are subject to a minimum $800 franchise tax annually. Even if your business has a loss, you still have to pay the $800. (And if you decide to close your business and forget to file the paperwork before the end of the year, you'll have to pay the $800 tax each year until you file to close it. Even if you file on Jan. 2.)

Re: S corp, yes, then it might not worth setting up one in CA. In CO, I pay fed and state tax on all of my profits, but I only pay FICA taxes on what I pay myself as a salary (which has to be reasonable). So a significant amount of income is not subject to FICA tax. On Schedule C, it is all subject to the 15.3% tax. BTW, I am not an accountant.
