I worked as a freelancer with US and Global clients - what do I put on my 1099 -NEC? It's asking for a payer's EIN to be responsible for all earnings, which they weren't?

I have one client's EIN but I am worried if I put theirs down it will account all earnings for the year under their name as there's no itemized EIN number area and majority of my clients are from different countries. But it won't let me file without adding an EIN. What should I do?

Actually you can just enter it as Other self employment income or as Cash or General income.  You don't need to get a 1099NEC or 1099Misc or 1099K.  Even if you did you can enter all your income as Cash.  Only the total goes to schedule C.

Thank you! Yes, that's what I thought but upon review before filing it TurboTax keeps looping me back to fill in a random 1099-NEC. Not even sure where it's coming from - it seems like a glitch because it shouldn't be requesting a 1099-NEC under 'Other Income'?
