This is in reference to my regular 1040 for tax filing. not a retirement question. I am not retired.

Yes, if you are filing a married filing joint return then you will have to include your wife's 1099-NEC on your return.

 

Please follow these steps:

Ive gone there and it is still confusing. It ask questions like is my wife an independent contractor. she housesits a man's disabled wife while he is out working. She is one in a rotation of 3. My wife is Filipina also. she has a green card. the 1099 only lists line item #1, non employee compensation with no tax withholding

Your wife is considered a independent contractor and therefore self-employed. She will have to pay regular income tax and self-employment tax on that income. Please see Am I an employee or an independent contractor? for additional information.

 

You will have to go through the questions carefully and she might be able to claim expenses she had. Please see What self-employed expenses can I deduct?
