I received a 1099 from my network marketing company for commissions and overrides. I also received a statement from them called Taxable Income REcap that shows how much I spent on Purchasing Products. You buy products at wholesale and sell them at retail. The difference is your income or "right now" money. This money is not easily tracked because they can't tell how much you sold at full cost, how much you sold at discounts and how much you kept for personal use or as gifts to further your business. Do I need to somehow claim this on my taxes as income or should I just claim what was noted on my 1099? There is also a box on my 1099-MISC form that is checked that says "Payer made direct sales of $5000 or more of consumer products to a buyer (recipient) for resale." Does this relate to me or is this the company just saying that I bought more than $5000 worth of stuff to sell as I see fit? Anyone have any experience with this on their federal taxes?

You will need to fill out a schedule c. That is where you report the cost of goods sold, the income you made and how much product you have left. I would claim the income on my 1099 and anymore that you might have from this business. All a 1099 is what they(the co.) has pd you. They do not know what you spent or made elsewhere. You can look up instructions for a schedule c on IRS.gov. Type schedule c in the key words box.
