I am an attorney. I had legal fees paid by Cook county, Illinois for work done on a criminal case. Another attorney assisted me and I paid her $3200 from what I was paid by Cook County, Il. My income was reported on a Form 1099-Misc. The income was $6560.00. I shouldn't be liable for all the taxes on that income since I paid out almost half of that for her assistance. I would appreciate your assistance.
You're going to have to upgrade to TurboTax Self-employed to deduct that $3200. Your own 1099-MISC income will be entered as Business Income. Then you'll be able to deduct the $3200 in the Contract Labor section of business expenses.
