You don't need an Employer Identification Number in order to report your self-employment income and expenses (including the rent you pay for your station). All your business activity is reported on Schedule C.

Log into TurboTax, open your return, and click on the Business tab. Choose "Walk Me Through Everything" and answer each question as accurately as possible. Look for blue links ("Learn More") on certain pages for additional help on most topics.

File one tax return that includes your personal income & deductions as well as your business income & expenses. You can access the personal topics from the Personal tab in TurboTax Self-Employed.
