The income still needs to be reported on Schedule C as a business.

 

But if you are POSITIVE it is not subject to Self Employment Tax, then you can go into 'Business Taxes' and make an adjustment to the Self Employment Tax.

Was the income reported in box 3 or box 7 of form 1099-misc?

It is in Box 7.

Since the income was reported in box 7 you must report it on a schedule c and deduct the expense per the directions above.
