Income and expenses option doesn't show up on screen for adding royalties to a 1099. How do I add royalties from box2?

There are a couple different ways to enter this 1099-MISC. If you went into that section from Wages & Income and then Income and Expenses (under Self-Employment), you will not see Box 2 to enter Royalties. 

1. Use these steps to jump to that section to enter the 1099-MISC as other income. Be sure to follow these steps so that you get to the correct section.

  • Log into your account, click orange Take me to my return button
  • Type 1099misc in the Search box in the top right corner
  • Choose jump to 1099misc and this will take you to the right section
  • Answer Yes to Did you get a 1099-MISC? (if a 1099-MISC is showing on summary page here, click Edit)
  • On next page scroll down to Box 2 - Royalites and enter that information from 1099-MISC there. 

NOTE: See the screenshots below if you are using option #2 below

2. Or you can use these steps:

  • Click on Federal Taxes, then Wages & Income
  • Scroll down and you may need to click Skip to see all income first
  • Find the Other Common Income (Tax refunds, 1099-G. 1099-MISC, 1099-K) section and click Show more next to it
  • Then click Start/Revisit next to Form 1099-MISC and answer Yes to Did you get a 1099-MISC?
  • On the Let's get the info from your 1099-MISC screen you should now see Box 2.
