Where is "my account" at? I have a 1099-NEC would that make a difference?

You will first go to the section for wages and income.  Then, you will say yes for self-employment income with a 1099-NEC.  Enter your income and expenses information under self-employment Sch C income and expenses section under "mileage".

 

No, that should not make a difference.  Just make sure that the income does go in correctly.  Some people have had a problem.

 

The 1099-NEC was brought back for 2020 tax returns just to report non-employee compensation and the box on the 1099-MISC which used to contain that information is gone on the 1099-misc for 2020 tax

returns.
