How much was reported on the 1099-MISC?


Did you use the proceeds to pay for legal services? 


Was it related you your UAW employment?

Since it was reported on a Form 1099-MISC, enter the UAW legal service benefit in the 1099-MISC interview under the Other Common Interview section of Wages and Income.


Enter the information as follows in the 1099-MISC interview:  

  • Enter the 1099-Misc in the Other Common Income  section (Enter "1099 misc" in the Search Box and Select "Jump to 1099 misc form")  

  • For "Description", enter "Legal Service Plan"  

  • Also check that it  does  not  involve work like your main job, that it  did  not  involve an intent to make money, and is  not  a recurring  payment (received in the past or expected  in the future)  

  • The income will be reported on line 8 of Form 1040 of your return (Other income from Schedule 1, Line 9).
