Hi. How do I enter income I earned for one day as substitute? I don't have a W-2 or a 1099-MISC. I am not self-employed.

I worked one day as a church secretary substitute. I was paid by check. I do not have any forms associated with this pay. My husband is usually the only paid member of the family. We file jointly.

How/where do I enter the pay information?

Hi. How do I enter income I earned for one day as substitute? I don't have a W-2 or a 1099-MISC. I am not self-employed.

If the amount was less than $433, you can treat it as self employment income and not be subject to social security and medicare tax (unless you [not your spouse] have other self employment). That way it will be classified as earned income for the Earned Income Credit or an IRA contribution.
If it is entered as "Other income", it will not be earned income, just taxable income
