I suspect that you received an IRS 1099-Misc form. Is there income reported in box 7 of the form?
You did not enter it as if it were a W-2.
Please see this TurboTax Help for information how to report the income as self-employment income.

A 1099Misc or independent contractor is self employment income. You can enter Self Employment Income into Online Deluxe or Premier but if you have any expenses you will have to upgrade to the Self Employed version.
