Yes. Real Estate Agents who receive their income reported on a Form 1099-MISC are considered Sole Proprietors and should report this income as a business or self-employed. Your income and expenses need to be reported on a Schedule C. When you do your taxes with TurboTax, we'll fill out the Schedule C for you and walk you through any self-employed expenses you might have.
For more information on Schedule C, please see below:
It tallies up the business's income and expenses, and the net income (or loss) flows from Schedule C to Form 1040, Line 12.
TurboTax automatically creates Schedule C (or Schedule C-EZ) when you enter your business information or when you enter what the IRS considers self-employment income, which is often reported on Form 1099-MISC.
On returns that only require Schedule C-EZ, TurboTax also generates a Schedule C, but this is only used for calculation purposes and isn't filed with the return.
