We made payments to our law firm to reimburse them for the application fees associated with filing a US patent. Should these payments be reported on the 1099 to the law firm along with the payments made for their actual legal services?
QuickBooks Online only supports the box 7 of 1099-MISC form, which is for non-employee compensation. One of the payments that might show in box 7 are the fees paid to a nonemployee. It includes independent contractors and travel reimbursement paid for which the nonemployee did not account to the payer if the fee and reimbursement total at least $600.
I encourage you to visit these articles for more information about the box 7 of 1099-MISC
