Yes, he's going to need to file because of the 1099-MISC. If the income is entered in box 7, it's considered Self-Employment income, and he'd need to pay Self-Employment tax if his net self-employment income is $400 or greater.

FREEDOM EDITION

You cannot enter a 1099Misc or self-employment income when you are using the Free Edition.  If you qualify, there is another free software program available from TurboTax which will allow you to enter self-employment income.

Try the Freedom Edition: 

https://turbotax.intuit.com/taxfreedom 

You qualify if your income was $33,000 or less, or $66,000 or less if active duty military, or if you qualify for Earned Income Credit
