Where do I enter a 1099-MISC?

If you worked as a freelancer or contractor last year, you probably got a 1099-NEC instead of a 1099-MISC. Go here to learn how to enter that form.

To enter a 1099-MISC for miscellaneous income in TurboTax:

  1. Open or continue your return
  2. Search for 1099-misc and select the Jump-to link
  3. Answer Yes to Did you get a 1099-MISC?
    • If you already entered a 1099-MISC, you'll be on the 1099-MISC Summary screen, in which case you'll select Add Another 1099-MISC
    • If you need to edit or delete a previously entered 1099-MISC, select the appropriate button
  4. Enter the info from your form into the corresponding boxes
    • If you need to enter boxes 4–6 or 8–17, check My form has other info in boxes 1–17 to expand the form

Boxes 1 and 2 missing from your 1099-MISC screen? Go back to the main 1099-MISC screen using the steps above.

If your 1099-MISC was for any of the following, you'll enter it in another section of TurboTax.

  • Rental Properties and Royalties (Schedule E):
    • Search for rental income and expenses (using this exact phrase) and select the Jump to link
  • Farm Income and Farm Rental:
    • Search for farm income and select the Jump to link
