 So if a person gets paid under the table and the employer refuses to give them a 1099-T (I think that's what its called) how do you go about paying/filing taxes?

You got paid under the table, that's illegal.

If you are ready to file taxes (federal) be prepared to pay all the other taxes that you haven't all year too.

What she said.  Alot of people do under the table so that they do not have to pay the taxes which are included when people are legally working there.

Claim the money you were paid. Self employed people do it all the time, you don't need a 1099. Just keep a record of what you were paid and when, thats all you need.

yes I use to use a spread sheet and put how much I was paid and  the date I was paid. I'd send a copy of it in with my tax returns. Never had a problem .

Speak to the employer again. Are you still working for them now? I would expect that to end once you have outed them to the IRS.

You will also pay more in taxes by being self emloyeed rather than an employee. Last I checked its an extra 7%...maybe a little higher.

You claim the money anyway.  You don't need a 1099.  It's up to the IRS on whether or not they get fined for not sending out a 1099.

what kind of work is it? Its odd that they wouldn't want to write off that expense.

Make someone happy today, mind your own business.
