Last month I got a 1099-MISC from a company I never heard of in a statewhere I do no business.I live in GA and own property in NY.A company in NC I've never heard of or done business with sent me a1099-MISC for several thousand dollars of rent.The name, address, and SSN are mine.I checked with my property manager to make sure it wasn't from him andit isn't.I checked two credit reports and am waiting on the third. No sign ofidentity theft on the first two.I looked around on the IRS site and the web, but no one seems to sayanything about this sort of case, only about what to do to 1099s thathave errors corrected. Nothing about what to do when the 1099 should notexist at all.So I assume someone at this company made a mistake. When I contact them,what do I have to ask for to make sure they told the IRS they were wrongand that the IRS acknowledges that?Do I have to do anything to make sure the tax departments of all threestates have gotten the word also?Should I delay filing my taxes until this is straightened out?
