Does a car salesman who is an employee have to pay SE tax on his 1099 Misc. income listed under other income

Level 1

Car salesman who gets a w-2 also got a 1099 misc. with an amount in box 3.

Does he need to pay SE tax on this or can it be reported under other income on line 7a?

IRS ruling?

Level 12

Who is the payer name on the 1099? What is the reason for the payout? Example:

Prize from the Automobile factory or some honest competition? Box 3 is fine, and that is Other Income.

Or, Bonus from the employer? Box 3 is an error; it should be on the W2 and should have been run through as payroll.

You can find your own IRS ruling.... but a good place to start searching would be for "spiffs"

Former Chump... umm.... AllStar.
