I am the treasurer for a small club-like nonprofit. In 2008 we started paying someone to do small tasks like setting up our meeting hall, arranging food service, etc. Her pay came out to about $1000 for the year. As this was our very first paid individual in the history of the organization, I did not send out a 1099 to her, or collect her tax data, simply because it did not cross my mind. She has not requested it either. I'm thinking that I made a big mistake here, and I don't have a lot of accounting background (I'm kind of the de-facto treasurer). What should I do now that all of the deadlines have passed? I desperately want to get everything above board, as the IRS makes me itchy.
