What if I was paid as a consultant but did not receive a 1099

If you were paid as a consultant and you were not an employee of the company who paid you, then you are considered self-employed for the work that you performed.  This is true regardless of whether you received a Form 1099-MISC or not.  

 

You would enter your income as cash on Schedule C for business income and expenses and claim any expenses that you had related to the work you performed.  

 

See the following TurboTax articles for more informaton:
