Anyone rec'd 1099 from Sten-Tel yet?

Still waiting on mine.  This is from the Sten-Tel in Massachusetts. 

Also, anyone know if they are hiring?  I'm thinking about begging for my job back.

You can file without a 1099 -- as long as you have invoices, etc. that you sent them or copies of checks that they paid, you just report that amount to the IRS.  You don't send in copies of the 1099 with your taxes you just report the income.  Sometimes companies do not send out 1099 and figure it is up to the IC's to keep track of and report their income.  But be sure you have copies of all invoices or billings to the company to verify what you got paid.   That is why, when an IC you should invoice or bill out what your services to the company so that YOU have a record of what you did for the company.  

no, you will get a 1099
I emailed them and they told me they had some mixup and they hoped they would be sending them this week........
W2 -- 1099
is it focus informatics? Go to the job boards and get the email and send request. OR ggogle the business name and see what comes up and contact that way.
1099 no message
They do not have to send you a 1099 for what they did NOT pay you, However,
you still need to claim what you received regardless if they send you a 1099 or not and pay your taxes accordingly.  I would report them to the IRS in either case, because I am sure you have tried to receive your past compensation without much success.
You'll get a 1099...

As a first-time IC, you may want to get some tax preparation help because you should have some write-offs that will most likely save you money.

1099 versus W2
An IC receives a 1099. You will see your total earnings under the section called Non-employee Compensation.

I totally agree with the other poster who said you should see a tax specialist, and I don't mean H&R Block. Ask friends and family who they would recommend. Don't just choose someone out of the phone book.

I'm also recommending that you get into the habit of deducting the money to pay your taxes with every single check you receive, unless you're really good with leaving your money alone (no matter what) and can pay your taxes quarterly. Also, a lot of people have different recommendations on how much you should set aside for your taxes. It can be anywhere from 20% to 30%, depending upon where you live. Discuss this with your tax specialist.
Oh, yes, it turned out I didn't need the 1099 after all
Just as said above, when I didn't receive it my accountant just told me to get my own information together and then send the employer a letter telling them that this is how much I earned, this is how much I'm going to claim. I guess I was just letting the OP know that I knew the feeling of not getting a 1099.

To the other poster above, I did get out of there as soon as I could. It was a local MTSO and at that point I was new and even now I didn't want to work for the Nationals so I stayed. The pay was good and as an IC I made my own hours. The only problem basically was the 1099 situation.
1099 Form amount
Isn't the amount $600.00? If you make that amount or more then you must be sent a 1099 form? I do have records of all of my earnings that I made last year. I made a little over $3,000.00 with this company. It was not that much, but enough to report in.
Has anyone who worked for CorTmedical in 2006 gotten their 1099 yet?
I know that a lot of us were burned last year by this company.  I am wondering if they are going to at least send the 1099 for what they should have paid us.  I am wondering if they do not send it, how am I going to claim what they did not pay me as a loss?  Thanks to all, hope everyone has found something better since that disaster.   
Sudden change in 1099 status?
why would a company after YEARS of having IC's suddenly push everyone into an employee status?  Does this have anything to do with trying to make the company less likely to be unionized???  Or is there something else entirely going on that Im missing all the way around?
Still have not received 1099 form from previous employer!

Am I not correct that employeers are supposed to send out 1099 forms by the 31st of January?  I quit a company back in May of 2007 and I still have not yet received a form.  I guess I should contact these people?  You would think they would have sent it to me by now!  It's frustrating having to contact old employers because you really do not want to have to be bothered by them anymore!

Agree with Patti. MTOS sends 1099 as courtesy,
CorTmedical MTs; Have any of you gotten your 1099 from CorTmedical for last year?
I know that a lot of us were burned last year by this company.  I am wondering if they are going to at least send the 1099 for what they should have paid us.  I am wondering if they do not send it, how am I going to claim what they did not pay me as a loss?  Thanks to all, hope everyone has found something better since that disaster.   
sten tel
I love working on the Sten Tel platform.  Very user friendly, a good Work based platform.  I pull off my jobs and put them in a folder and work from that folder.  A bonus is if I lose Internet connection, I can continue to work out of my folder and just u/l when get Internet back. 
I have worked for them for about 6 months now....I do mostly editing with voice recognition...I enjoy it very much, and I have found the company to be extremely flexible and very nice!
sten-tel . com
I've never heard of sten-tel.  is it a stenography company?
As far as I know, tranny is slang for transvestite... What in the world could that mean?? Good luck.
I start training with them next week, so I am afraid I can't be much help info wise, but if you would like I would be happy to tell you how it goes. I, personally, have only heard positive things about this company. In my opinion, if the pay is what you are looking for and you want an IC position, then go for it.

Any one have feedback on this company?  I was hired for a QA/editor position but have heard nothing since.....????

I work for Sten-Tel, and they are THE nicest people.  This is the second time I have worked for them, so I am on a different account than the last time, but I really like working there.


There is no work at Sten-Tel right now for the past 2 to 3 days!! 
I wonder if she is still there at Sten-Tel.
She was more than ignorant with her carelessness.
3.5 cpl at Sten Tel
Hey all, just saw on the job board that Sten-Tel is hiring!!  They're a great company!  So check them out, you might want to send a resume and take their test!!  They're just wonderful!!  I work for them and they're great!  Good accounts and a good bunch of people working there and also a great platform!!!  Check it out!!
Do they offer Radiology positions?
Go to the MTJobs.com board and you'll see that in the Sten-Tel job listing, there are phone numbers and a link to their email! Check them out!
If you go to www.mtjobs.com Sten-tel has 2 ads on there, one for MT one for editor. Hope that helps.
Which Sten-Tel
Can you tell me which Sten-Tel you work for? In doing a search I find a lot of companies with the Sten-Tel name. Also, are you an IC or an employee. Thank you
Sten-tel does
if you go to www.mtjobs.com and look, Sten-tel is hiring MTs and editors. They are all IC positions.
I worked for Sten-Tel for a short time doing QA work PT. I didn't have much experience with the company but what I did have was good. The program was good. The people were great. There always seemed to be tons of work. The pay for QA was a little low compared to others but no complaints about the company. Like I said though, I just worked part time for a while.
Sten-Tel? sm
I got an offer from Sten-Tel and the pay seems pretty good but I've heard some not-so-great things. Any recent info on their MA office?
They are not a very high paying company, even with experienced transcriptionists.
SteN-Tel..... sorry!!
I can't believe I misspelled that?!?!?!  LOL
sten-tel, inc

Hi.  Has anyone worked for sten-tel?  if so, what platform do they use?  How are they to work for?  Are you able to have flexibility with your schedule?  is the pay decent?

Any help would be very much appreciated

I'm confused.  Why is there a company called sten-tel with a website?
the one I am looking into is in MA also. how long ago did you work for them? They told me I could keep a total of the line count myself in the tools box. Do you have to type on various platforms?
I appreciate your help.
I worked for them about two years ago, for about three weeks time. I used their platform, but only for downloading and uploading files. I used Word to type my reports. Yes, I do remember being able to *view* a total of my line count, but they did the counting, not me. I did not have to type into their platform at that time, but as the poster below suggested, *who I don't think is too reliable*, they may have accounts where you do use a different platform to type into. It all depends on the account I suppose. I just hope the male coordinator I had is no longer there. He used IM to keep track of me and even when I was not scheduled to be working, he would ask me why I was not working. He was awful. When I told him I no longer wanted to work for him because he really did not seem to have a handle on the coordinating part of his job, he sent me *copies* of my work stating that words were missing, etc. and that my work was subquality. I don't know why he did not realize that I had copies of my own work that proved that I had no missing words. I threatened to report him to management and he left me alone after that. mind you, I had already quit by that time. I cannot remember his name. Just be careful, okay? I had a bad experience with them, so I am not completely objective, but I would not completely trust them, either. JMO. good luck.

this doesn't sound good.  I finally got a hold of other posts on them.  Do you think you have to be careful when working as a IC as far as getting paid on time?  Do you mind me asking who you work for?  I get many hopeful prospects in then in the end it does not look good.  I hate to jump from the fire to the frying pan.

Thank you for your help. 


anyone have anything good to say about sten-tel.  I saw some postings on here not too good but just wondering if anyone has had a good experience with them. 

Sten-Tel, in MA
I was wondering if anybody has any info on them?  I am supposed to start working with them and just want to opinions/experiences.  Also, I know their pay is low, but do you still make a decent amount of money?

I have worked for them for about a year also.  Checks always on time, pleasant people and no one bugs me.  You would have to see what they offer you and that would depend on your experience and how you test.  They will hire MTs with less than a year and they also offer you work in other specialties if you need more work.  I work when I feel like it:)

There are other companies with better benefits and platforms but this is a decent company that pays on time, and if you need flexibility you will certainly find that with them.

Is sten-tel a franchise like a mcdonalds?  ?  I thought I saw this somewhere on this site but cannot find it now.  So if you get hired for them, who actually are you working for?
R&B Sten-Tel
Anyone have any experience with this company?
I have worked for Sten-Tel for almost a year. I have never not received my pay check on time and have never had it be incorrect. I am on 3 accounts and NEVER run out of work unless it's some sort of holiday and is slow for a day or a half a day. Everyone has been nothing but professional to me, and my experience has been good. Some people hear one person say something negative about a company and assume there's nothing good there. I know a lot of happy people at Sten-Tel. Good luck in your decision. Becky
Please email me if you have any info on Sten-Tel.  Appreciate it! Considering position.
I work for them currently,they pay on time and they are pleasant to deal with. They have been very flexible with work schedules.
Sten-Tel QA
Is Sten-Tel understanding with MT scheduling needs? I am so unhappy where I am now and I want out, but I cannot work set shifts until my youngest child is a bit older and doesn't need me so much for homework help ect . . .
I worked there a while and then quit due to the low pay. They were paying next to nothing for an IC status position. They weren't worth the trouble and I think they are the only company left not using direct deposit.  They also have started only paying once a month so that is a big pain
