Teacher Stipend 1099-misc 2023 tax year

I received a 1099-Misc for a teacher stipend. I am not self-employed. This was not made from work hours and was paid by a different entity that is not my employer (school at which I teach). It was reported in Box 3 on the 1099-misc. Should this income be reported as “other income” or should it be reported as self-employment income on a Schedule C? 
Here is some information about the stipend per the payer’s website:

“Child Care WAGE$® Iowa (WAGE$) is a salary supplement program offered by Iowa AEYC. WAGE$ works hand-in-hand with T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® Iowa. WAGE$ offers salary supplements (also called stipends) to the early care and education workforce, based on the individual’s level of formal education and commitment to their program.”

No, the teacher stipend from Iowa does not count as self-employment income.  

 

To enter the 1099 Misc as non-self-employment income take the following steps:

  • Income
  • 1099-MIsc under Other Common Income
  • Enter the information from the 1099-MIsc
  • Continue through and say the work does NOT involve work that is like your main job
  • Select the years you received it
  • Say no, to did this involve an intent to earn money
