He's got that right.  I do this -- keep records and send out my own 1099s.
The IRS has tried several times to tag me on income, but I send 'em
complete xeroxes of every check (I take the club check and issue my own
checks to band members) I gave to supporting musicians.  They quickly give
up with an "Oh."  It's a pain, but I gotta say, it's satisfying to back
'em off once in awhile.
