If you received a 1099-MISC with the income reported in box 7 or if you were paid in cash, then you are not an employee. You are considered to have been self-employed and "in business" for yourself when you earned that money. Therefore all of your business income and business expenses are reported on SCH C as a part of your personal 1040 tax return.
When you start working through the business income section, you need to tell the program that NO you did not receive a 1099-MISC. Then you will be asked for income not reported to you on a 1099-MISC and you will enter that business income basically, as "general income" and press on from there.
So if you "did" indicate you have a 1099-MISC and started entering data, the program has already created the forms necessary and you *MUST* delete them now. To do that:
Start over in the business income section and indicate YES, you did receive a 1099-MISC. The next screen will show you the 1099-MISC you already attempted to enter. Click the delete button next to it to delete it, then click YES to confirm the deletion and finish working it through to be returned to the main business income screen where you can indicate that you did *not* receive a 1099-MISC.

So no schedule C? I don'T recall seeing where I can put in NO I did not receive  A 1099-c DO you perhaps have a screenshot of where Id see that?

"So no schedule C?"
I never said that. yes you *WILL* complete SCH C.
Just start from the beginning again. After the Personal Info section, the *very* *first* section you deal with is Business Income & Expenses (SCH C).

Just enter your income under Other Self Employed Income.  Even if you get a 1099Misc.  You don't need to enter the actual 1099Misc.  Only the total income goes to schedule C.
