My husband sells insurance for commissions only. He received commissions from 4 companies, but received only 2 1099-Misc forms.

Are there exclusions on commissions that don't have to be reported? For example, if a company pays less than a certain amount of commission (i.e., < $500) then they don't have to send a 1099-Misc to the payee? I seem to remember reading somewhere that banks don't have to send a 1099-Int form if the amount of interest is < $10. Does the same idea apply to misc income?

The dollar amount is small - $161 from one company, $281 from the other. TurboTax has a screen for entering general business income {income not reported on a 1099 form). Morally, I know I should declare this income, but on the other hand, I want to keep our tax liability as small as possible.

Adding another entry to my moral/ethical/existential dilemmas list.
