To correctly enter the 1099-MISC so that it does not prompt a Schedule C, take the following steps:

  • In your open Federal return, choose the tab for Wages & Income
  • Tab through or down to Other Common Income  (you may have to choose Add more income and then See more income to view this topic) and then Show More
  • Start/Revisit Form 1099-MISC
  • Edit the 1099-MISC if you already entered it, or Add it now and enter the information on the form, then Continue.
  • On the screen Describe the reason for this 1099-MISC enter your description.
  • On the screen Does one of these uncommon situations apply? choose None of these apply.
  • On the screen Did the [Description] involve work that's like [Name's] main job? answer No.
  • On the next screen, choose the year you received the money.  (In this case, 2018.)
  • On the screen Did the [Description] involve an intent to earn money? choose No and complete the interview.

This will place the 1099-MISC on Form 1040, Schedule 1, Line 21.
