I am required to provide a 'Payer's Federal EIN' for a 1099-NEC I never received - I work for the State and always just receive a yearly W2

I am ready to file my 2020 taxes, but there is one thing that needs my review before submitting. It's asking for 'Payer's federal EIN' for a 1099-NEC Worksheet for some reason. I work for the State of Connecticut and filed my W2. I've never received a 1099-NEC before and have no idea why it's asking for this information. I filled in the 'Employer Name' as "Not Applicable" hoping that would help, but it still requires me to provide a EIN before allowing me to submit my taxes. Please provide me guidance on how to proceed. Thank you so much for your time.

Please see the following link to assist you with this message.

 

Remove 1099 - NEC

 

Form 1099-NEC is new in 2020 and is used to report other self-employment income if you were working as a contractor and not as an employee.  This form would not apply to you as you were employed as an employee.

I followed your advice and selected the review tab, then tried to 'proceed through the screens' but cannot get passed the "Schedule C: 1099-NEC" which requires me to input an answer in 'Who paid you (Payer)' as well as the 'payer's federal ID number.' (Again, I have never received a 1099-NEC) If I back out of that and simply click 'Continue' in the 'completecheck' screen, it reads that "We still have a couple details to button up." I cannot find the screen titled "Delete Confirmation for Form 1099-NEC." Please provide more guidance on how to proceed. Thanks so much for helping thus far!

It is now allowing me to select my husband for the "This 1099-NEC is for:" section. This makes more sense as he is self-employed. However, he only received a 1099-K form and has filed that as his entire earnings were listed there. There is no 'Payer' unless he should put PayPal as that is the third-party he receives payments for his service through. I don't know what he would put for the 'Payer's Federal ID number' though.

The Form 1099-NEC was reintroduced for nonemployee compensation in 2020.  It's causing a few difficulties randomly. 

 

You should delete the Form 1099-NEC since your husband doesn't receive one. A Form 1099-K does not get entered into the return, the income is entered in full on the Schedule C (self employment) as I'm sure you already know.

 

Here's the general procedure for viewing the forms list and deleting unwanted forms, schedules, and worksheets in TurboTax Online:

  1. Open or continue your return in TurboTax.
  2. In the left menu, select Tax Tools and then Tools.
  3. In the pop-up window Tool Center, choose Delete a form.
  4. Select Delete next to the form/schedule/worksheet in the list and follow the instructions.
