Thanks for the replies! I too thought it strange that the income was on a 1099-Misc, but didn't trust myself to assume the hospital was "wrong".

He may or may not want to file that 8919, because he HATED working there, and quit his job in January, and now does only part-time work as "locum tenens" which I think is latin cum radiology speak for "freelance".

Does the fact that he received the entire signing bonus at the end of 2006 change any of the details? He received a lump sum in cash, and was told he would forfeit a prorated amount of the bonus if he left prior to 2 years. Isn't that fishy as well, that he can get the income in one year, but then have the taxes spread out over the next 2 years? If it's really a "loan" (as his radiology group described it) shouldn't he have to pay interest on it, or at least claim as income the interest paid on his behalf?
