How do I report income from self-employment?

If you received a 1099-MISC for your self-employed income

Open your return and search for self employed income (use this exact phrase). Select the Jump to link. This will take you directly to the section where you can enter info about your self-employment work, including any 1099-MISCs you have.

You may have to enter some info about your business if you haven't already provided that. You’ll also be able to enter any cash, personal checks, credit card payments, or cryptocurrency (Form 1099-K) related to your self-employment.

If your self-employment income was only from cash, personal checks, credit card payments, or cryptocurrency 

Open your return and type Schedule C in the Search box. Select the Jump to link. This will take you to where you can enter any cash, personal checks, credit card payments, or cryptocurrency (Form 1099-K) related to your self-employment. You may first be asked some general questions about your business. After you answer them, you’ll be taken to the Let's enter the income for your work screen. Select Other self-employed income and provide all necessary information.
