I am stuck- 1099-MISC Box 3. Its asking me to type into the box to the left of Schedule C. I have no clue what it wants from me. I cannot file without resolving the issue

I am totally out of ideas. I dont even know if it wants a number or a word. I am absolutely clueless, and filing is hinging on this one box.
I got disconnected from customer service, I would love to be reconnected please.

@kjsmm , Delete the first 1099-Misc to clear out the program and then enter as below.

 

You can enter the 1099-MISC in TurboTax as "Other Common Income. Please use the following steps:

  1. Click on Federal > Wages & Income.
  2. Scroll down to the Other Common Income section.
  3. Click on the Start/Revisit box next Form 1099-MISC. 
  4. On the screen Did you get a 1099-MISC?   Yes 
  5. Enter the information from the 1099-MISC.
     
  6. On the following screens, answer the following questions:
    • Did it involve work that's like your main job? No.
    • You got it in 2021
    • No, it didn't involve an intent to earn money

 7.  Continue through the rest of the interview screens. The income will appear as Other Income.

 

 

Here's the general procedure for viewing the forms list and deleting unwanted forms, schedules, and worksheets in TurboTax Online:

  1. Open or continue your return in TurboTax.
  2. In the left menu, select Tax Tools and then Tools.
  3. In the pop-up window Tool Center, choose Delete a form.
  4. Select Delete next to the form/schedule/worksheet in the list and follow the instructions.

If this is not business income, you need to indicate that.

 

To enter a 1099-MISC for miscellaneous income in TurboTax:

  1. Open or continue your return
  2. Search for 1099-misc and select the Jump-to link

 

  1. Answer Yes to Did you get a 1099-MISC?
    • If you already entered a 1099-MISC, you'll be on the 1099-MISC Summary screen, in which case you'll select Add Another 1099-MISC
    • If you need to edit or delete a previously entered 1099-MISC, select the appropriate button

To exclude it as business income, say NO to the questions regarding the intent to earn money and that it involved work like your main job.

this is for a few free stocks I got when I opened a Webull account. I automatically transferred the documents into turbotax?

 

Does it think im a business owner?

 

I am so confused.
