Do you have a TurboTax Online account?

We'll help you get started or pick up where you left off.

I received a stipend from my school. I received the full amount, no taxes were withheld. I used it for regular living expenses. I did not receive a w-2. How do I report?

I also did not receive a 1099. I only have the free version of Turbotax. How do I report it?

This would be considered taxable income since it was not used for eligible education expenses.

 

You would enter it as Other Income by taking the following steps:

  • Income 
  • Show more next to Less Common Income
  • Start next to Miscellaneous Income
  • Start next to Other Income not already reported on a form W-2 or 1099. 
  • Walk through until you get to the question asking "Enter Source of Other Earned Income and select Other
  • Enter the description and amount.

The other answer is not incorrect.  It will put the income on line 8h of form 1040 (Other earned income). 

 

But, I believe stipends should be reported as taxable scholarship. As such it should be entered in the education expenses and scholarships section (under deductions and credits, instead of income).  After answering no to having a 1098-T, answer yes to qualifying for an exception (that gets you to the entry screens). You will have to go thru the whole education interview to get to the scholarship screen. At the scholarship screen, enter the amount of the grant. When asked if any was used for room and board, answer yes. Then enter the amount you want to be taxable (usually all of it), in the pop up box. R&B are not "qualified educational  expenses".  So, this is how you tell TT that it is taxable. Note the wording at that screen “or other expenses”. You didn’t have to literally use the scholarship for R&B.  This will put it on line 8r of Schedule 1.
