In 2016, the only income I received was $300 (from a local Food Co-op) for teaching two art history classes. There was no W-2 issued. How and where do I report this?

Should it be reported as hobby income? Something else?

If you want to report cash with no documentation, such as a W-2 or 1099-MISC,

  • Click Federal Taxes > Wages & Income
  • Scroll down to Less Common Income
  • Go to the last selection, Miscellaneous Income and click Start
  • Go to the last option, Other reportable income and click Start
  • Answer Yes to Did you receive any other taxable income?
  • Enter the description and then the amount.
