Do I have to pay for deluxe in order to report my self employed income of $200 or is there another way to do it?

I did not receive any 1099 forms as I made less than $600 but I still need to report the little amount that I did make. Shouldn't I be able to do that for free?

If you want to prepare a Schedule C for reporting self-employment income and expenses, you will need to upgrade to the Deluxe version.

If you received $200 for a one-time side job, you could enter it as Other Taxable Income (screenshot).

  • Go to WAGES & INCOME
  • Scroll down to LESS COMMON INCOME
  • In the topic list, scroll down to MISCELLANEOUS INCOME > Start/Revisit
  • Choose 'Other Income not Already Reported on a Form W-2 or Form 1099'
