Both petitioners already have their W-2s and the related form 1040. According to them they have never seen form 1099 before and both thinks that it won't be necessary since all their income and employment info are already stated on the 1040 and W-2s. I would like to know if it is mandatory to submit the aforementioned form (1099) and if so , what is its purpose?
Form 1099 is given by employers to "independent contractors" , those the employer does not consider employees on payroll. It does not apply to you in your situation since with your W2s on hand you prove you are full-fledged employees on EMPLOYER'S payroll. One is usually required to furnish either a W2 or 1099, bit never both.
