Odd situation should report as 1099-NEC or Other income?

I'm a public school teacher and I took a professional development class over the summer that was funded by a national science research grant. I received a stipend for my time spent in the class. It was over 600$. But I'm not self employed or an independent contractor for this university, and it's not gig work. They reported it on a 1099-NEC.

 

The instructions at the top say:

" If you are not an employee but the amount in box 1 is not self employment (SE) income ( for example, it is income from a sporadic activity or a hobby), report the amount shown in box 1 on the "other income" line (on schedule 1 (Form 1040))"

 

I'm going back and forth with this, any help would be appreciated. Thanks 🙂

Odd situation should report as 1099-NEC or Other income?

This applies to Form 1099-NEC, 1099-K, 1099-Misc et al and to other taxable income without a report.

Enter it in the personal section, Other Common Income Form 1099-MISC.  To ensure it does not go to Schedule C (self-employment), you will answer the follow-up questions accordingly. 

 

On the Describe the reason for this 1099-MISC screen, enter a description of the other income. (award/stipend)

Select None of these apply on the Does one of these uncommon situations apply? screen.

Select No, it didn’t involve work like my day job on the Did the involve work that's like your main job? screen.

Select I got it ONLY in 2023 on the How often did you get income for? screen.

Select No, it didn’t involve intent to earn money on the Did the work involve an intent to earn money? screen.

 

Answering differently to any of these questions will imply self-employment and generate Schedule C.
