I was instructed to put the income on schedule C and then put it in again as a negative number with a note “ paid to llc”. The IRS reversed the negative and sent me notice I need to pay taxes the total ( which is 2 times the amount). How do I correct the Schedule C?
At this point you don't correct anything. Respond to the IRS letter by explaining what you did and why you did it. Include copies of any accounting paperwork, worksheets, PNL statements, and your 1065 tax return, to prove that you already reported the income. Keep copies, use a mailing service with tracking, and be sure to mail it before any deadlines in your current letter. If the IRS accepts your explanation, they will correct your file and you don't need to send in an amended return also, unless they tell you to.
The actual IRS instructions for when you receive a 1099-MISC in error are to not enter it on your tax return at all. Write a letter of explanation, and attach the letter and a copy of the 1099 to your tax return, and file your return by mail. (This is a one page explanation, you would only send additional proof if asked. In your present case you need to send full proof.). The "report the 1099 then report a negative item" trick was created to allow you to e-file--I know it is used on this board a lot, but I don't know who created or endorsed it (a volunteer or a Turbotax Pro). But I have seen enough complaints to know that it does not always work the way people think it will, and the better method is to file by mail with an explanation.
And I have used the Sch C cure many times without issue ...send supporting docs in your response.
also in my son's situation he started out as a sole prop then we formed and LLC so he received some to his social and some to his LLC. Since we want to report all income on LLC it should be ok to 1099 from his ssn to the LLC the income that was recieved. That should work I beleive.
If he did NOT incorporate and is only a single member LLC then all the income and expenses are still reported on the Sch C ... in the business info section he will add the LLC EIN ... nothing else is different.
I've been trying for hours to find an answer to my question, and I thought this might be close, but it wasn't. I can't find a way to reach a human, so I'm pirating this reply box in hopes you won't think too badly of me, and that you can answer my question. Here's my question: I made Tax payments in Dec 2019 via IRS Direct Pay & SC MyDORWAY because I would owe Fed & SC taxes due to a Roth Conversion of an IRA, and I wanted to avoid an underpayment penalty. I have the receipts, but where do I enter the additional tax payments in TurboTax Premier? I've looked at every tax situation in TurboTax, but none address the voluntary payment of extra taxes unless it's via Withholding, which this wasn't.
