My sister received a 1099-MISC from her employer. She is an attorney for a real estate management company and got some shares from a REIT. It is under 7 Non Employee compensation. It is almost $400.

This sounds like a "spiff." It should have been included in her W-2 wages. AFAIK it is never appropriate for an employer to issue a 1099 to an active employee. She needs to question her employer about why it was issued.

Pros, I remember researching this issue for a friend years ago, but I've long forgotten what I found out. Rattling around in my gin-soaked brain is something about special treatment for employment taxes. Anyone know anything?
