Does the 1099 MISC prevent her from using the 1040EZ? It just seems like overkill to use a 1040, schedC and I haven't even looked at what  CA tax forms need to be filed. Just want to keep it simple. She paid $40 total in taxes, and one online app said she owed another $81. It seems she should be getting the $40 returned.

No, unfortunately, she will indeed owe self-employment tax on the 1099 income and that requires the Self employment version.


There is another  free version that may meet her needs and would include the Schedule C  See here:
