Tax Consequences of Volunteering

Kathy
(Chicago, IL)

My husband and I will be retiring next year. We've been looking into volunteering or working 20-25 hours per week. However, we've heard that many places will send you a 1099 for the value of your campsite when you are a volunteer/work, which increases your taxable income. Is this true?

No, it is not true.

I understand that some, but very few, government parks and programs send out 1099s.

As for private campgrounds, IRS publications state that if lodging is on the employer's business premises, and is for the employer's benefit, and is a requirement for the job that the value of the lodging is not taxed.
