Can not find a way to enter 1099-misc amount without Turbo Tax considering it self employment income and adding on self employment taxes even though it was only from a sweepstakes prize?

Can not find a way to enter 1099-misc amount without Turbo Tax considering it self employment income and adding on self employment taxes even though it was only from a sweepstakes prize?

Here are few examples of why you'd get a non-work 1099-MISC:

  • Lawsuit settlement
  • Prize winnings
  • Board of director's fee
  • Manufacturer's incentive payment
  • Working interest in gas and oil property

If you got a 1099-MISC for one of these reasons or another non-work situation, then we'll help you enter it. Here's what to do:

  1. Type “1099-misc” in the search box (upper right of program)
  2. Select the “Jump to” link.
  3. This will take you to the 1099-MISC entry screen.
  4. Enter your information from your form into the corresponding box. (Note: if you don’t see your box number, check the box “my form has other info in boxes 1-18.” By doing this, the other boxes on the form will open.)

Continue and answer the follow-up questions about your 1099-MISC income.

NOTE: There are two places in TurboTax to enter 1099-MISC and you want to enter your 1099-MISC under Other Common Income, not Self-Employment
