Hi, My daughter who is a rising senior in college did a summer internship with Columbia for Public Health. She worked, had informal classes, lectures and trips. They paid her about 3800 for food and expenses. She didn't fill out any tax papers and no taxes were taken out of checks.
She is abroad but has been writing them because we never received any forms. They just sent her a link saying:
Stipends are considered taxable income to students. However, based on IRS rules, the University does not withhold tax on stipends or provide students with tax Form 1099. Students are responsible for reporting taxable stipend payments along with any other payments they receive and remitting any tax due with their personal income tax return.
We don't know how to enter this without a form, we don't have ID numbers etc. We are also in CT and she was in NY so state tax should apply. I was going to call the IRS but working and the hold times were too much today.
