Although tax season is over, tax questions arise year round. My husband is an experienced accountant and will be answering questions sent to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Ask an Accountant”.

Question: I am a blogger who works with various affiliate companies and vendors. Is it true that if one of them pays me less than $600 a year then I don’t have to claim that income?
Answer: No, that is not true. You have to claim everything you make. However, if you earn less than $600 from a company, they do not have to send you a 1099. Basically the company is not required to report it but you still should.
