DID YOU OPEN A CHECKING/SAVINGS ACCOUNT IN YOUR NAME FOR A FAMILY MEMBER?
While we typically see this in cases where a person owes back child support, I have seen cases where a person was in chexsystems, had bad credit, or was simply incapable of handling their finances.
If the checking/savings account pays interest of $10 or more, a 1099-INT statement will be issued in the name of the account holder. When a person receives a Form 1099 for interest in their name that actually belongs to someone else, the IRS considers that person a nominee recipient.
If you received a Form 1099-INT or Form 1099-OID that includes an amount you received as a nominee for the real owner: you must give the actual owner a Form 1099-INT (unless the owner is your spouse) and file Forms 1096 and 1099-INT with the IRS.
