Im confused , your service doesnt have I am needing . I am self employed and income is tips only. What do I file under ?

I do not get a 1099 and here on Turbo tax the only other option is   Uncommon Income    which does not seem right either .

Use Other self-employed income. Includes 1099-K, cash, and checks. 

This includes cash income which would be the tips you receive.

In the Expense section for self-employment use Other miscellaneous expenses for the storage fees.

I can not find  what you said . There is no area that says Other Miscellaneous expenses. I've looked for well over an hour !  Even under  Other Deductible Expenses there is nothing to add this expense.

 

Please advise .  Thank you.

On the screen for your 2019 Self-Employed Work Summary, when you click on the Edit button the following screen has two boxes. 

One states Add income for this work and the other states Add expenses for this work

You need to scroll down the page slightly for the Expense box to be visible.

 

There are also other selections on this page.  Do you see these? -

Carryovers, limitations, at risk information, etc.  and a Start button

Qualified Business Income and a Details button

2-Year Comparison and a Details button

 

A clickable link How do I add another line of work?  and a Done button

Yes sorry,  you need to upgrade.

You can enter 1099Misc Self Employment Income into Online Deluxe or Premier but if you have any expenses you will have to upgrade to the Self Employed version.

Not free.  The Self Employed version is the highest version.

 

OR There is also The Turbo Tax Freedom website which is free for federal and state.  And has more forms than the Federal Free Edition, like the full 1040 return and Schedules A, B, C , D, E, F, EIC, H, K-1, SE,  etc.

To qualify for the Tax Freedom website  you just need to meet one of these 3 things

 

AGI $34,000 or less

Active duty military with AGI of $66,000 or less

OR qualify for EIC (earned income credit)

 

In order to use the Tax Freedom Edition, you have to start it at a special website:
