This is happening to me too! Upon review it asks for schedule C so I upgraded to Self Employment version, added the expenses and it is still asking for schedule C link. So frustrating! TT please help! Seems like there are many unanswered questions for people dealing with this issue.
I have posted this thread where TurboTax Moderators will see it later today. Would either of your be willing to post a screenshot of what you're seeing in Review? (Of course, no personal info in the screenshot, please.) This is often helpful when investigating an issue.
Thanks, and sorry for your difficulty.
Optional work around ... DON"T use the 1099 entry section ... delete it from there and enter your total annual income in the next OTHER income section of the Sch C interview ... this will not change what the IRS sees on the Sch C and is perfectly legal ...
By the way, this issue has been reported to TurboTax Moderators for investigation.
Thanks, @jay_chumley . Is the double-click option functional? Can you double-click on the words "Schedule C" to link it?
What I get from this is that you haven't yet set up your "Business" that is specific to this 1099-NEC income. The instructions on that page tell you to go to the "Federal" tab, then "Income and Expenses", then "Income from 1099-NEC" to properly set up this business in the TT program.
Is this 1099-NEC (since it's new this year) for income that you formerly had a Schedule C for, but that the income was reported on a 1099-MISC?
Thanks for your help Kat. I tried clicking, double clicking, typing, in Chrome, Firefox, Safari to no avail. My new form is a 1099-NEC. I did have a Schedule C carried over from last year for this same work that was created with a 1099-MISC last year. Even if I delete all of the Self-employment income options I still get this error. I think you are on to the root issue though, carry over data done last year as Schedule C / 1099-MISC. I have gone through and verified all of the business data and keep getting stuck on a screen I can't enter data for.
@jay_chumley I know TT is working on this, but it's driving me nuts. 🙄
Sorry if I'm being redundant:
BEFORE YOU DO THIS, check to see if you have any carryover business losses that would apply to this year's return. I've prepared my husband's Schedule C for years, but have never had a business loss, so I have no experience with that.
Have you deleted the Schedule C that transferred over from last year? You can do that by using the instructions below:
I think you may also have to delete your business profile entirely and start fresh. Create your new business profile, then select THAT new business profile to link to the new 1099-NEC.
Maybe this will solve the problem? Fingers crossed.
I filed schedule C last year but am not this year. Review won't allow me to progress until I complete the 1099 NEC. I deleted the 2019 schedule C but it is still prompting me to complete the info. Not only that, it's asking me to enter my SPOUSE'S 1099 NEC and I have never been married. I've been filing single since I was 16 and I'm 45 now. It's a technical problem for sure. Someone at TurboTax called me and I shared my screen. She was asking me to complete fake information in forms just to bypass them, so I asked if she could contact technical support. I was eventually transferred to Ernest, who stated he was a supervisor. I explained what was happening and the call went silent. He is not responding. I put my phone on speaker in case he comes back. I am 40 minutes into phone calls at this point. Oh the call just disconnected. Great customer experience.
Thanks for your efforts Kat. That noted issue is exactly it. I have no losses carried over, and I did delete everything under self-employment all together. just a bug that I hope gets fixed soon. Thank you!
@jay_chumley My pleasure. So sorry I couldn't help. Hopefully this will be resolved soon.
