Ok, I just hear that in the healthcare bill, anytime I spend over $600 to any place, I will have to give them a 1099. More paper work. This is why I like to pay cash to laborers. I will have to get the tax id number from brushy mountain, walmart, the numerous gas stations, and no telling who else I get jars from. I would have to figure all the gas purchases up on the credit card and see if I made it to the same gas station more that 6 times and get their tax ID from them. (I average $98.00 on a fillup with the credit card. The truck is a diesel). I buy sugar from 2 different walmarts, each one on each side of me depending which way I drive, do they have one tax number as walmart corporation or does each store have a number? If I want to run a bee business, why are they making this so hard. 99% of my money goes to a corporation of one kind or another and they already report all money coming in. Lets just say I get to sell a whole barrel of honey, then I will get a 1099 from that person. I am already reporting that money for tax as it goes into the bank, what good is that 1099 going to do for my bee business?
