1099 reporting on pass through transactions


I've reimbursed for consulting fees that my employee had paid previously. Since this is a pass-through, is it required to file a 1099 to the employee?

Thank you.

For what you paid to employee, it was reimbursement of expenses and not the consulting fees payable to the employee! So, there is no 1099 to the employee. You will fie a 1099 for the consultant who was ultimately paid by the employee!
