I have a work-at-home gig for which I receive a 1099. My unmarried partner recently took over all the work on my behalf. How could she claim this income on her taxes?

My unmarried partner and I live together and she took over an at-home independent contractor gig for me after I became a full-time employee elsewhere. I receive a 1099 form in my name for the work completed, however she did all the work and I gave her all of the money. Is there a way she could claim this income that she worked for?

You need to report the 1099Misc on your return as self employment income on schedule C along with your expenses.  You can then issue her a 1099Misc to report the money you gave her.  You enter it on your schedule C as Contract Labor on line 11.   Then she will report it as self employment on her own tax return and her own schedule C.

You can fill out a 1099Misc for her using QEF Quick Employer Forms free from the online Self Employed version.

Are you using the Online Self Employed version?  It may be more cost effective for you to buy the Desktop CD/Download program which can do unlimited returns and gives you a free state program download.  So she could do her return with it too.  And the Desktop program has more features than the Online version.  You can see Desktop here,  <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="https://turbotax.intuit.com/personal-taxes/cd-download/">https://turbotax.intuit.com/personal-taxes/...>

Yes, I was going to use the online Self Employed version but I will definitely go this route instead. Very helpful, thanks so much.
