Issued 1099NEC for healthcare, do I need to enter anything on my tax return ?

I have issued multiple 1099NEC's for my healthcare (private aids). Besides giving them a 1099NEC and E-Filed them to the IRS, do I need to do anything else on my1040 individual tax return ?

If you are not in the business of paying private aids for services rendered to other people, you did not need to file the 1099-NECs.  If you do not have a business, these expenses are not deductible to you in full.  If the aids were providing care to you or a household family member, you can include the costs in calculating the medical expenses deduction on Schedule A.

 

To enter medical expenses in TurboTax Online you can follow these steps:

  1. Within your return, under Federal in the black menu bar click Deductions & Credits
  2. Scroll down to Medical Expenses and re-enter your information proceeding through the items all the way to the end where you can click Done

Why did you issue 1099s for private services?  From the IRS: 

 

Trade or business reporting only.

Report on Form 1099-NEC only when payments are made in the course of your trade or business. Personal payments are not reportable. You are engaged in a trade or business if you operate for gain or profit.

Hi !  We were advised by an accountant a while ago to issue 1099NEC and to E-File it.

So at this point, what do I do ? Does anything need to be entered on my 1040 regarding this ?

 

Thanks
