Hi there. I was hoping that perhaps I could find some advice. In a nutshell, a natural gas company that clears a right of way behind our home every couple of years was performing mowing, etc last summer and one of their machines kicked up some gravel/stones which broke a window at our home. We replaced the window and the company reimbursed us for out of pocket expenses. The company sent us a 1099-MISC form which shows the reimbursed money as miscellaneous income. I'm confused why we even receive this as this was a straightforward reimbursement for damages they caused. I of course want to report it on our taxes but am curious if I should add a note and paper trail for this incident? It would seem to me that the money is in essence increasing our taxable income. Any help/suggestions/guidance are greatly appreciated. Thanks!
