In the US, say person P does a job for company C.
Say it's 2017 and they do the job say April 1 - April 30. They get paid on April 30. They get $50,000.
Can company C then pump out the 1099 for that item (ie, for the $50,000) and send the 1099 over to P,
right then, before the end of the year?
So, they send it over say "July 4 of 2017".
Or in fact, can it only be done once the year is finished ??
(As is well-known, if C does send the 1099(s) normally in 2018, of course they have to do it by a certain deadline, roughly the end of January. No question about that. My question is C can actually send it "there and then", just sometime during the middle of the year?)
A related or perhaps the same question is,
Is there only one 1099 from a given company to a given person?? Or could the company send (say) three 1099s, if the person did (say) three freelance jobs during the year???
Surprisingly I really couldn't find this answered anywhere..
