Do you have a TurboTax Online account?

We'll help you get started or pick up where you left off.

I am training to be a clergyperson and did a paid church internship in summer 2023, but I was not yet ordained. Does this count as clergy income, or other income?

I received a 1099-NEC for the internship stipend, and I'm hung up on the part where TurboTax is asking me if this falls under Education, Clergy Services, Research, Music Performing, Legal Services, or None Of These.

This would be considered other income because you were not yet a minister or officially a clergy person. However it would be considered self employment income subject to self employment taxes (social security and medicare taxes), as well as personal income tax.''

You should use your address as the business address, and your name as the business name. This is not clergy income as of yet, but a paid internship as you work towards your end goal of clergy person.
