Do you have a TurboTax Online account?

We'll help you get started or pick up where you left off.

I made less than $500 via Upwork.com as a freelancer last year, but they won't be sending any forms. How do I report the income under the self-employed section?

If your employer does not send you a 1099-MISC, but you should have received one, you will need to enter this information into the 1099-MISC selection (which will generate a Schedule C - related to Self-employment income)

Missing 1099-MISC workaround:

ONLY do the following if you will NOT be receiving a FORM 1099-MISC but you need to report cash/income as Self-employment Income:

To enter this transaction in TurboTax Online or Desktop, please follow these steps:

    • To enter this transaction in TurboTax, log into your tax return and type "1099-MISC" in the search bar then select "jump to 1099-MISC". TurboTax will guide you in entering this information
