for rent. I RECEIVED A 1099-MISC.and now will have to pay the irs $1200. I have MS and receive disabilty. If i did not do this work i could not afford my medication. Since this has been turned in as income i may now lose my disability. I have never received a check for the work it goes against my rent. Should i have to pay taxes on this? I will be greatfull for any advise. Thanks and God bless."
