Can i file my 1099 for free


You cannot enter a 1099Misc when you are using the Free Edition.  If you qualify, there is another free software program available from TurboTax which will allow you to enter self-employment income reported on a 1099Misc.

Try the Freedom Edition: 

You qualify if your income was $33,000 or less, or $66,000 or less if active duty military, or if you qualify for Earned Income Credit

Note:  If you do not qualify for the Freedom Edition, you need Self-Employed.  You cannot file in the Free Edition with a 1099Misc.
