How to enter 1099 misc but don't own the business

Since you received a 1099-MISC with income in box 7, the IRS considers you an independent contractor, or self-employed. You would report your business income and expenses on a Schedule C. Turbo Tax Self-employed would be the best product for you to use. It will walk you through how to report your business income and expenses.

And when I enter payers information and the amount it shows up. But it shows his name and the amount twice. Is that normal. Or should I delete the 2nd one

Yes you need to have all the expenses separated into categories. If he only sent you one 1099 then delete the extra one off, he he sent you more than one then you should enter them in separately.

My husband is a professional BB and I pay for the expenses of travel and lodge. If he makes a win than we can claim this to be taxed. Other wise all out of pocket and nothing to claim as of now.
