For the 1099-MISC, I am being asked for an EIN or a social security number. However, the problem is that the company is a South Korean company in South Korea.

For the 1099-MISC, I am being asked for an EIN or a social security number. However, the problem is that the company is a South Korean company in South Korea.

Since you did not have an American EIN on your Form 1099 Misc, please do the following in TurboTax:

  • Federal Taxes
  • Wages & Income
  • Self-Employment
  • Income and Expenses, then Click Start.
  • Did you have any self-employment income or expenses?, click Yes
  • Tell us the type of self-employment work you do, type in your description, click Continue
  • Let's get income, you can make your selection
  • If you do not have your Form 1099 Misc and wish to report, select Additional Income (check/cash payments), click Continue
  • Did you have any more income for sales? No, if that is the only one
  • Did you have expenses?, if you want to report any expenses related to this income, then you will need to upgrade to TurboTax Self-Employed. If not, then you can continue using your current TurboTax version
