I received payment for a legal settlement of $295. Following your hints, I created a 1099MISC. Since I have no EIN, I'm getting grief from TurboTax. Help.

If you did not receive a 1099-MISC, you should not enter it as if a 1099-MISC was received because the IRS did not receive a 1099-MISC.  Enter as Miscellaneous Income.
