I am returning a  bit value field from a Stored Procedue to the report and using the expression
=IIF(Fields!MyBitField.Value = 1, "Yes", "No")
and the report displays no for both 0 and 1
How do I get the report to recognize the value?

Haven't worked with bit fields in SSRS yet but would have thought it would return 0 or 1. Turns out it shows True/False. Try modifying the IIF statement like this and post back if it doesn't work as expected:
=IIF(Fields!MyBitField.Value = True, "Yes", "No")
