How do I amend the 1099 NEC Worksheet? I need to unlink the two check boxes, but it won't let me in the Review phase.

I need to unlink the two check boxes, but it won't let me in the Review phase. I continually get this message:A Link to Schedule C and a link to either Schedule F, Form 8919 (Wages) or the Other Income Statement have been selected to report nonemployee compensation. Only one can be selected. You must remove the link that is not applicable.

If you have already submitted your tax return, you will have to wait until the IRS accepts and rejects the return. You cannot return to the program to make any changes before that. 

 

If your return got rejected for whatever reasons, you can return to the program to make the correction along with other changes.  You do not need an amendment 1040-X.

 

If your return has been accepted, you will have to amend your return by filing a form 1040X.  You should not try to amend your return until it has been fully processed and you have received your refund or your payment has cleared.

 

Beginning with the 2019 tax year, you can e-file amended tax returns. If you used TurboTax to prepare Form 1040-X, follow the software's instructions to e-file the amendment.

How to file amendment

 

If you received a 1099-NEC with a non-employee compensation, you should have entered a 1099-NEC and a Schedule C.  Make sure you link 1099-NEC to Schedule C.  The 1099-NEC self-employment net profit should show on your Schedule 1 line 3 and line 8 of your Form 1040.

I cannot unlink the Farm box.

The info shows up on Sch. C in my return.

I am therefore unable to e-file.

You should not have the Farm box.  Please remove the existing Form 1099-NEC and maybe a Schedule F from the program.  Here are the steps:

 

In TurboTax program, 

  • Sign into your account, select Pick up where you left off
  • From the left menu, select Tax Tools, click on the drop down arrow
  • Select Tools
  • Under Other helpful links, choose Delete a form
  • Select Delete next to Form 1099-NEC / Schedule F and Continue with My Return

 

 

If you received a nonemployee compensation on a Form 1099-NEC, you will need to enter the information in both Form 1099-NEC and Schedule C sections.  You would start from the 1099-NEC section under "1099-MISC and Other Common Income".  You would then follow prompts to tell the program you are filing a Schedule C.  As it creates a Schedule C for you, you will need to go to the Schedule C portion separately to confirm your income amount, add related expenses and complete required information. 

 

In TurboTax online, here are the steps: 

  • Sign into your account, select Pick up where you left off
  • From the upper right menu, select Search and type in 1099nec and Enter
  • Select the Jump to 1099nec
  • Follow prompts to complete the section

Then 

  • From the upper right menu, select Search and type in schedule c and Enter
  • Select the Jump to schedule c
  • Next screen, "Your 2020 work summary" under your self employed business, select Review
  • Continue to enter related expenses and other required information

You are considered as self employed and required to pay self employment taxes.  The net profit amount should show on line 8 of your Schedule 1 and Form 1040.
