Is anyone having a problem with entering a 1099-NEC its my husbands but keeps putting my name instead of his and have deleted and tried again still giving me trouble

Yes, I have tested this scenario and see that something is not quite right when trying to tie a specific Form 1099-NEC to a specific Schedule C when there are two taxpayers involved.

 

Try going back to the section where you entered the Form 1099-NEC if you entered it on its own and delete that entry.  Use these steps:

  • On the top row of the TurboTax online screen, click on Search (or for CD/downloaded TurboTax locate the search box in the upper right corner)
  • This opens a box where you can type in “1099-NEC” and click the magnifying glass (or for CD/downloaded TurboTax, click Find)
  • The search results will give you an option to “Jump to 1099-NEC
  • Click on the blue “Jump to 1099-NEC” link

This will bring you to the summary of all Form 1099-NEC that you have entered.  Click Delete or the trash can icon next to each one.

 

Next, you will re-enter the Form 1099-NEC as part of the Schedule C so that the income is reported directly as part of the Business Income and Expenses and within the correct form and section of your return.

 

Use these steps to go to the Schedule C section of your return.  

  • On the top row of the TurboTax online screen, click on Search (or for CD/downloaded TurboTax locate the search box in the upper right corner)
  • This opens a box where you can type in “schedule c” and click the magnifying glass (or for CD/downloaded TurboTax, click Find)
  • The search results will give you an option to “Jump to schedule c
  • Click on the blue “Jump to schedule c” link

If you already have a Schedule C in your return, edit it and go to the section to Add Income.  This is where you will re-enter the Form 1099-NEC. 

 

If you do not already have a Schedule C in your return, follow the prompts and enter the information about your work/business for which you received the Form 1099-NEC.  Then continue through that section to Add Income and enter the Form 1099-NEC plus any other income you received for that self-employed business.  

 

Entering the Form 1099-NEC directly through a specific Schedule C will match the ownership of that Form 1099-NEC to the taxpayer who runs the Schedule C business.

I CANNOT ENTER MY BUSINESS INCOME VIA 1099-nec.  I am in business section that lists a 1099-nec form that I click update that takes me to 1099-nec Summary page, I click on edit and it lists the payee details. I hit continue and I am back to the beginning the Business Income page.  I deleted form and added it back with no change. My form says 1099-nec but I cannot edit.  should I add and edit edit a 1099-MISC form that seems to work?
