How do i file a 1099 misc with box 7 amount filled in for a commission i earned 3 years ago?

To enter your 1099-MISC:

  • Go to Federal  > Wages & Income
  • Scroll down to the Other Common Income section
  • Click Start next to Form 1099-MISC
  • Answer Yes to Did you get a 1099-MISC?

At the screen "Does one of these uncommon situations apply", select "None of these apply". If you answer all 3 of the next questions no; TurboTax treats it as other income rather than self employment.

  •  No, didn't involve work like main job
  • Only got the income in 2017
  • It didn't involve an intent to earn money
