Im an independent contractor

I'm trying to file my 1099-misc, and the questions I'm filling out seem to be geared more towards someone self employed or someone who owns a business. Am I doing this right?

Yes, you are filling this out correctly. An independent contractor is considered self employed by the IRS.

When you complete the income and expenses section in TurboTax Self-Employed, all of the information will directly flow into the Schedule C and complete it with the information that you have provided.  

You can find out more about the Schedule C and the different sections by clicking the link below:
