I did not receive a 1099, only a check for $181.82 for air bag settlement, TurboTax keeps asking for EIN or payer's social security number.

I did not receive a 1099, only a check for $181.82 for air bag settlement, TurboTax keeps asking for EIN or payer's social security number.

If it is from a class action law suit, and you were not injured (no pain and suffering) the settlement is taxable.  To enter as other income in TurboTax:

 

  • Type "Other Income" in Search and hit Enter
  • Click on "Jump to other income"
  •  Answer "No" to "Did you get a 1099-MISC"
  • Continue through the interview till you get to "Less Common Income" and click on it.
  • Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on "Start" next to "Miscellaneous Income, ..."
  • Click on Start next to "Other reportable income"
  • Answer Yes to "Any Other Taxable Income?"
  • Give a description (e.g. Air bag settlement) and enter the amount
  • The amount will be reported as "Other Income" on Schedule 1 of Form 1040
