We understand your concerns and frustrations and we apologize for the inconvenience. The 1099s sent out on the 16th are still incorrect. The corrected 1099s will be sent out soon. We will update this page when we learn the official date. Thank you.
2.18.10 - Notice to Foster Parents Regarding 1099
The 1099 that foster parents recently received regarding foster care maintenance per diems was sent out in error. Foster parents will be receiving a corrected 1099 from the State that will, in all but a limited number of cases, show zero reportable income related to the foster care maintenance payments that parents have received.
In addition, at this time, no income related to foster care per diems has been reported to the Internal Revenue Service.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this has caused you.
2.18.10 - Notice to Adoptive Parents Regarding 1099
In the next few days you will receive a 1099 Misc form from the State of Indiana in regard to the adoption assistance payments you received from the state in 2009. Please note that this form was sent in error and will be corrected. None of the adoption assistance payments you received in 2009 were reported to the IRS as income. You will receive a corrected 1099 form that no longer includes the adoption assistance payments in that report.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this has caused you. The United Way Building in Columbus, which housed the Bartholomew County DCS Office, was destroyed in a Christmas Eve fire. The Bartholomew County staff will temporarily relocate to Seymour until a more permanent location can be secured. The Bartholomew County Office number (812.376.9361) and fax line (812.314.2482) are being forwarded to Seymour.
