Do i have to pay to file a 1099-misc

Possibly. TurboTax Federal Free Edition does not cover a 1099-MISC, so you would need to pay and upgrade to Deluxe unless you qualify for the Freedom Edition, which is free and covers 1099-MISC.  You'll need to meet at least one of these requirements:

  • A maximum 2015 adjusted gross income (AGI) of $31,000; or 
  • You qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC); or 
  • You served as active duty military (including Reservists and National Guard) with a maximum 2015 AGI of $62,000 (you'll also need a military-issued W-2).

Freedom Edition is available online at Please note that the Freedom Edition website is not connected to the website.

Also – don't confuse Freedom Edition with Federal Free Edition at These similarly-named products are completely different. See this FAQ for more information:
