The Schedule C will need to include information about the type of work that you do for the income reported on Form 1099-NEC.

 

If you are working as an independent contractor, then you are running your own business performing the services or providing the goods for your income. 

 

As you go through the Schedule C section in TurboTax, some basic questions will be asked such as what kind of work you are doing; do you have a business name or are you using your own name for the business; do you have a business address or are you using your own home address; did you have other income to report; and did you have expenses that you are claiming for the business.  

 

Use the following steps to go to that section of your return and work through the questions to fill in the required information:

  • On the top row of the TurboTax online screen, click on Search (or for CD/downloaded TurboTax locate the search box in the upper right corner)
  • This opens a box where you can type in “schedule c” and click the magnifying glass (or for CD/downloaded TurboTax, click Find)
  • The search results will give you an option to “Jump to schedule c
  • Click on the blue “Jump to schedule c” link

I'm still stuck on the 1099-NEC under box 1.  It has nonemployee compensation with a box for the amount then it says Double Click to Link to: Schedule C.  What do I put here?

There is a known issue when using TurboTax Online that is related to the program asking you to double-click to link to Schedule C.  Take a look at the TurboTax article below and use the link in the article to enter your email address to be notified once this is resolved.  

 

Why can't I link my 1099-NEC in TurboTax Online?

 

Alternatively, take a look at the additional information below for a possible series of steps to solve the issue.  

 

Since income reported on Form 1099-NEC needs to be reported on Schedule C, the program is trying to tie these two forms together to be sure that it is reported correctly and on the right form.

 

Try going back to the section where you entered the Form 1099-NEC if you entered it on its own and delete that entry.  Use these steps:

  • On the top row of the TurboTax online screen, click on Search (or for CD/downloaded TurboTax locate the search box in the upper right corner)
  • This opens a box where you can type in “1099-NEC” and click the magnifying glass (or for CD/downloaded TurboTax, click Find)
  • The search results will give you an option to “Jump to 1099-NEC
  • Click on the blue “Jump to 1099-NEC” link

This will bring you to the summary of all Form 1099-NEC that you have entered.  Click Delete or the trash can icon next to each one.

 

Next, you will re-enter the Form 1099-NEC as part of the Schedule C so that the income is reported directly as part of your Business Income and Expenses and within the correct form and section of your return.

 

Use these steps to go to the Schedule C section of your return.  

  • On the top row of the TurboTax online screen, click on Search (or for CD/downloaded TurboTax locate the search box in the upper right corner)
  • This opens a box where you can type in “schedule c” and click the magnifying glass (or for CD/downloaded TurboTax, click Find)
  • The search results will give you an option to “Jump to schedule c
  • Click on the blue “Jump to schedule c” link

If you already have a Schedule C in your return, edit it and go to the section to Add Income.  This is where you will re-enter the Form 1099-NEC. 

 

If you do not already have a Schedule C in your return, follow the prompts and enter the information about your work/business for which you received the Form 1099-NEC.  Then continue through that section to Add Income and enter the Form 1099-NEC plus any other income you received for that self-employed business.  

 

Don't forget you can also claim expenses related to your business.

 

After you are finished, the error condition should be eliminated.
