By January, if you had received more than one Award for Program Completion through After School Matters programs totalling more than $600 during the previous year, you will receive a tax form 1099. The purpose of the form 1099 is to tell you the total amount of money that you received from After School Matters during the previous year. If you were a pre-apprentice, apprentice or advanced apprentice, no taxes were withheld from your Awards and the total of all of your checks/deposits is reported on a 1099 form.
If you were an intern at any time during the previous year, you were considered an After School Matters employee and will receive a tax form W-2. The purpose of the form W-2 is to tell you the total amount of wages After School Matters paid to you and the taxes withheld from you during the previous year. The amounts withheld from your wages were based on the form W-4 that you completed at the beginning of your internship.
The information on the form 1099 and W-2is also reported to the IRS.
