Where do i enter income from 1099 Nec.?

Income reported on Form 1099-NEC must be reported on Schedule C, the program needs to link these two forms together to be sure that it is reported correctly and on the right form.

 

If you have already entered your 1099-NEC, you will need to revisit the section where you entered the Form 1099-NEC on its own and delete that entry. Follow these steps:

  1. Open TurboTax.
  2. On the top right corner of TurboTax online screen, click on Search (or for CD/downloaded TurboTax locate the search box in the upper right corner).
  3. Type in “1099-NEC” (or for CD/downloaded TurboTax, click Find),
  4. Click on the “Jump to 1099-NEC” link.

This will bring you a summary of all Form 1099-NEC that you have entered.  Click Delete or the Trash can icon next to each one.

 

If you have not yet entered your 1099-NEC, you will enter the Form 1099-NEC as part of the Schedule C so that the income is reported directly as part of your Business Income and Expenses and within the correct form and section of your return.

 

Follow these steps to go to the Schedule C section of your return: 

  1. On the top right corner of TurboTax online screen, click on Search (or for CD/downloaded TurboTax locate the search box in the upper right corner).
  2. Type in “schedule c” (or for CD/downloaded TurboTax, click Find).
  3. Click on the “Jump to schedule c” link.

If you already have created a Schedule C in your return, click on edit and go to the section to Add Income.  This is where you will enter the Form 1099-NEC. 

 

If you do not already have a Schedule C in your return, follow the prompts and enter the information about your work/business for which you received the Form 1099-NEC.  Then continue through that section to Add Income and enter the Form 1099-NEC along with any additional income you received for that business.  

 

 

Please Note: Currently there is a known issue when using TurboTax Online that is related to the program asking you to double-click to link to Schedule C. 

 

If that occurs after entering your information, please review the article below and use the link in the article to enter your email address to be notified once this is resolved:  

 

TurboTax: Why Am I Unable to Link my 1099-NEC?

Where do i enter income from 1099 Nec.?

After entering payer information on the NEC Form I do not get a box to put in the amount for box 1.  The business income sheet shows "0" for NEC income because I cannot find where to enter it. Should I just change it all to 1099-Misc because my 1099-Misc entries all are showing? I checked and followed the instructions from the community but they do not address my issue.

Since the Turbo Tax software does not ask you to enter income on the 1099-NEC form when you enter the other info in the form, open the "Forms" window and go directly to Form 1099-NEC and make your entries. I think this was an oversight in programming.
