Was the Groupon stock sold? If so, you can simply describe it as a sale of Groupon stock.
Enter it as "Other Common Income"
Click Wages & Income
Click “See All Income” if needed
Scroll down (PAST SELF-EMPLOYMENT) to “Other Common Income”
Click “Show more”
Scroll down to “Form 1099-MISC”
Enter the 1099-MISC and Continue
On the "Describe the reason for this 1099-MISC” screen enter something like “Referral Incentive” and Continue
Select “None of these apply” and Continue
Select “No, it didn’t involve work like main job” and continue through the interview selecting the appropriate answers for a one-time payment
The amount from the 1099-MISC will be reported as Other income on the 1040 line 7a, not as Self-employment
After that I see that $7 from 1099-Misc reported as self-employed income.
I am on H1B visa and can't be self-employed. How can I avoid self-employed record and report 1099-Misc with $7?
That should work for you. You should see the income on line 8 of schedule 1, part I on your federal tax return if it gets processed correctly.
"Did you report a capital gain/loss?" - what is this question in reference to? a 1099-MISC? a coupon or referral bonus?
