You can enter the 1099-MISC in TurboTax as "Other Common Income," which is reported on line 21 of the 1040 and will not generate Schedule C or SE tax.  Please use the following steps:

1.      Click on Personal > Personal Income > I'll choose what I work on.

2.      Scroll down to the Other Common Income section. 

3.      Click on the Start/Revisit box next to Income from Form 1099-MISC.  [See Screenshot #1, below.]

4.      On the screen Did you get a 1099-MISC?  click on the Yes button. [Screenshot #2]

5.      On the next screen, Let's get the info from your 1099-MISC, enter the information.  [Screenshot #3]

6.      On the following screens, answer the following questions:

    • Did it involve work that's like your main job? No.
    • You got it in 2017
    • No, it didn't involve an intent to earn money
7.  Continue through the rest of the interview screens. The income will appear on line 21 of form 1040 (Other Income).
