How should the health insurance premiums for the domestic partner of an employee be reported to the employee? The employee received a 1099-MISC. But I think it should be reported on his W-2 and subject to tax withholding and FICA.

I have seen the 1099Misc used in the past by a large newspaper chain.

I have a client that receives a W-2 with FICA but no tax withholding. This is from a large communications company.

I would suspect that in my case benefits were handled by Human Relations and payroll was handled by a separate department and never the twain did meet.

I have never dealt with this issue, but I assume this is for companies that provide and pay for health inusrance benefits for domestic partners in states that specifically do not recognize domestic partner coverage?

Only reason I ask is because back before I was married to wife #2, we were living together in sin and Key Bank at that time just began offering domestic partner coverage. Which was awesome because before that I had no coverage. Key Bank paid for a portion of my coverage as well, but nothing was ever received in regards to additional W-2 income or a 1099, unless of course, I missed it when looking at her final pay-stub and W-2 when I did her return.

This was about 8 years ago and in NY.
