i'm not sure i understand the 1099 system.

what am i suposed to do with them? do i just make sure that i include that $ in my gross.

or do i have to give them each slip to the accountant so he can enter them back to the govt system?

These are 1099's you are getting from your commercial accts, right?

I use TurboTax - and you simply enter them where prompted for, THEN subtract the total 1099 amount from your gross, and enter the remainder gross revenue where prompted. Pretty darn easy. May want to reconcile them with your records to make sure the customers didn't goof.

The copy sent to you is YOUR copy. It is just a notice that the issuer of the 1099 has sent a copy to the IRS. I always give the ones I receive to my accountant just for his information. But you don't send your copy to the IRS.

i never gave them to the tax guy tho. i just have that included in my gross #.

should my accountant be entering these then subtracting them?

it's the same as a w2 formyou would recive from an employeer, just do your taxes based on what they claim they paid you,

DOUBLE CHECK IT, I have found several that were wrong, you may find yourself paying too much in taxes

so if your records say abc paid you $1000 and they sent you a 1099 saying they paid you $500. you only claim the $500

Yes, that's exactly what you do. Your total "gross" goes on Part 1, line 1 of schedule C, assuming your a sole proprietorship or LLC.

No. You're responsible for reporting all income received.

I think we are confusing the OP.
In summary, you only want to claim your income ONE time, whether it be 1099, lumped income, etc. So, just follow your tax program. When it asks you to report 1099 income, do so. Then it will likely ask for NON 1099 income, so subtract it out, and report that.
Not too tough. If you get your taxes prepared, then your tax rep should know how to handle this.
