Question: is a copyright settlement taxable?
i am a graphic designer.
i worked for 10 years as an independent contractor for a large company.
they then tried to stop working with me and offered me a small
i hired a lawyer and went around in circles with them for a year and
finally gave me a settlement for copyright. they continue to sell their
with my designs.
the large company sold the company to another large company right after
they settled with me.
they never furnished me with a 1099 and when i pressed they said they
send me a 1099
indicating that the $$ was paid in settlement of a claim (box 3 - other
income) so that it is not subject to self employment tax. i never
but is this correct? do i have to claim the money i received as income
self employment tax? it was not paid as wages as i had already left the
company a year before. also do i have to claim for federal and state
taxes? do i even mention it on my 1040 schedule c? if so where?
Answer: That's fully taxable, whether they send you a Form 1099 or not. If it was a lump-sum settlement for use of your copyrighted material, claim it under Other Income on line 21 of Form 1040, NOT on Schedule C. If it's part of an on-going income stream for continued use, claim it on Schedule E as royalty income.
It is not self employment income and no SE tax is due on it.
