So, from a business' perspective, is it appropriate/required to issue a 1099-MISC for reimbursed expenses? Our vacation rental LLC has been issuing 1099-MISC's to our onsite management and cleaning crew, but only for their services provided, not for their reimbursed expenses. (And, if it makes a difference, the services for the year exceed $600 but the expenses would not, and the two types of payments are invoiced/paid separately)

You are supposed to show all payments on a 1099-MISC. The recipient then documents his expenses on his Schedule C (or other appropriate form).

In further research, it appears that including payments for reimbursed expenses on a 1099-MISC is not required if expense reports and receipts are submitted for those expenses. Is that understanding accurate?
