Need to AMEND return to add AmeriCorps Segal Award, there is no place stating "Less Common Income" How can I AMEND my return when this options are not available?

Three weeks ago, I filed my return with MISC 1099 for AmeriCorps Segal Education Award and was charged a Self-Employment tax.  Today, someone told me that I should not have paid the Self-Employment tax, so I tried to AMEND my return. On the TurboTax site, the options to select  "Less Common Income" and "Other reportable incomes" are NOT available. When amending, there does not seem to be a work around for this. Help. Thanks.

Need to AMEND return to add AmeriCorps Segal Award, there is no place stating "Less Common Income" How can I AMEND my return when this options are not available?

The instructions are different for Online and Desktop, plus I don't work on a Mac, but this is how the 1099-MISC for an AmeriCorps award is entered in Windows.

Be sure to Delete the first entry. 

In the desktop program, start or open your return

Click FEDERAL TAXES

Click Wages & Income 

Click "I'll choose what to work on" if needed

Scroll down to Miscellaneous Income, 1099-A, 1099-C (the last option) under "Less Common Income" and click Start

Scroll down to the last option "Other reportable income" and click Start

Answer "Yes" and Continue

Type AmeriCorps 1099-MISC into the description box and the amount.
