If I received a W-2 and a 1099-Misc and am not self-employed how should I report my 1099-Misc?

I am a full employee working on an annual contract in Kuwait.  The 1099-misc reports allowances I received such as; Housing, Per Diem, and Auto.

If I received a W-2 and a 1099-Misc and am not self-employed how should I report my 1099-Misc?

Here is some information to help answer your question

Information from Form 1099-MISC can be entered in 2 different locations, depending on your situation:

  • Self-Employment - when the income relates to your normal job or something you do regularly. This income will end up on a Sch C, subject self-employment tax and expenses can be entered to reduce the taxable amount. 
  • Other Common Income - something you did only once - and not related to your normal job and don't plan on doing this type of work in the future. 

If the second example sounds like you - enter this information in Turbo Tax as follows: Go to Federal Taxes - then click on Wages & Income, next look for the section: Other Common Income, then click on Start to the right of "Form 1099-MISC."
