I received a 1099-Misc for Paid Family Leave, How will I file this through Turbo Tax ?

During my maternity leave at work I was paid through a third party insurance company. They sent me a 1099 Misc, how am I supposed to properly file this if I do not own a business & it's work related.

You need to report this as 1099 income that's not self-employment.

Under the Wages & Income tab (or Personal Income tab) scroll down to Other Common Income and elect to start/update Income from form 1099-MISC. Then click YES to indicate you have a 1099-MISC.

Enter the 1099-MISC exactly as printed, and then Continue.

Enter paid family leave

Select None of these apply, then Continue.

Select No, it didn’t involve work….. and Continue.

Select ONLY the tax year for which this specific 1099-MISC was issued. Do not select the year that you received the 1099. Select the year for which the 1099-MISC was issued. Select no other year. Then Continue.

Select No, it didn’t involve an intent to earn money, then Continue.

Select NO, then Continue.

Click the DONE button, and that does it.

I'm not sure these instructions are correct. 

 

An alternate place to enter PFL: 

 

Under Personal Income there's a section for Unemployment and Paid Family Leave. It says you can can receive PFL reporting on 1099-G  *or* several other reporting documents.  Wouldn't a 1099-MISC count as one of several other types of documents?

To enter your paid family leave reported in box 3 of a Form 1099-MISC, use the path Federal>>Income and Expenses>>Other Common Income>>Form 1099-MISC.

 

For purposes of this PFL 1099-MISC, you select "didn't involve work like my main job" (because you were on leave, not working) and "didn't involve an intent to earn money" (same reasoning, you were on leave not working).

I have entered as suggested in this post but am still required to put in Schedule C.  Is there a fix to to this?

Following these instructions from  @DavidS127 should not require a Schedule C:

 

 

To enter your paid family leave reported in box 3 of a Form 1099-MISC, use the path Federal>>Income and Expenses>>Other Common Income>>Form 1099-MISC.

 

For purposes of this PFL 1099-MISC, you select "didn't involve work like my main job" (because you were on leave, not working) and "didn't involve an intent to earn money" (same reasoning, you were on leave not working).

I have entered my 1099-MISC for paid family leave the way directed above.  When Turbo tax does the Federal review, it tells me I have 9 errors and is telling me I need to complete Schedule C "Profit or Loss from Business".

 

Please Advise!  Thank you!!!

I have done this.  When the program does the review I get 9 errors involving  a schedule C.

Unfortunately turbotax forces you to move to a costlier option to enter as this as Misc. income, instead of as FMLA, including now having to pay additionally for State filing... all for what? Irritating.

It won't allow you to remove a schedule C. 

 

What do we do? This is aggravating.

@pembe-ercen Delete the 1099-Misc and the Schedule C, as the 1099-Misc may keep generating Schedule C unless it is removed also.

 

Click this link for info on How to Delete a Form in TurboTax Online.

 

Re-enter your 1099-Misc as per Expert @ReneeM7122 above: 

 

  • Wages & Income tab (or Personal Income tab) 
  • Other Common Income and elect to start/update Income from form 1099-MISC. Then click YES to indicate you have a 1099-MISC.
  • Enter the 1099-MISC exactly as printed, and then Continue.
  • Enter the reason you got this money – paid family leave
  • Select None of these apply, then Continue.
  • Select No, it didn’t involve work….. and Continue.
  • Select ONLY the tax year for which this specific 1099-MISC was issued. Do not select the year that you received the 1099. Select the year for which the 1099-MISC was issued. Select no other year. Then Continue.
  • Select No, it didn’t involve an intent to earn money, then Continue.
  • Select NO, then Continue. 
  • Click the DONE button.
