In most circumstances, your clients are required to issue Form 1099-NEC when they pay you $600 or more in any year. As a self-employed person, you're required to report your self-employment income if the amount you receive from all sources totals $400 or more.
You may not receive a 1099-NEC if you did not receive at least $600.
If you did not receive a 1099-NEC just continue with your Schedule C and enter the amount of income you received under Other Income.
