Do third-party DMVs get sent a 1099? The third-party DMV in question collected $120 in convenience fees. The rest of the invoice, about $4,000, consisted of government fees for vehicle registration that it collects and sends to the DMV.
If the third party is an individual (sole proprietorship/Schedule C business), then yes, I would send a 1099. If it is an incorporated entity, there is no need to send the 1099.
