When I enter the information from the 1099 MISC that I received from the UAW I am receiving errors and it takes me to a schedule C which I did not receive or have information. Turbo Tax will not let me proceed to file my federal return and list numerous errors for schedule C. Please Help.
Delete the 1099-misc you entered and re-enter it as follows:
Click Wages & Income
Click “See All Income” if needed
Scroll down (PAST SELF-EMPLOYMENT) to “Other Common Income”
Click “Show more”
Scroll down to “Form 1099-MISC”
Enter the 1099-MISC and Continue
On the “Describe the reason for this 1099-MISC” screen enter something like “UAW strike pay” and Continue
Select “None of these apply” and Continue
Select “No, it didn’t involve work like main job” and continue through the interview selecting the appropriate answers for this strike pay
The amount from the 1099-MISC will be reported as Other income on the 1040 line 7a, not as Self-employment
You will want to delete the Schedule C- follow these steps: Solved: How do i delete a schedule c form. Because you are getting the errors, I would suggest deleting the Schedule C AND the 1099-MISC, then use the prior steps to re-enter. Let me know if this works for you!
No, the UAW strike pay did not even cover the loss wages. These questions determine if you need to pay self-employment tax on the income- which you should not.
UAW strike pay should not be reported as self-employment income. Delete the 1099-Misc that you entered.
To correctly report the 1099-Misc income, scroll down to Other Common Income to report the 1099-Misc.
Please see the screen shot at the bottom. When answed as directed, the 1099-Misc will be entered on Other Income, Line 8
@ColeenD3 I followed your instructions and still files a Schedule C and says I have 17 issues that need resolving.
This is getting aggravating. Why is it so hard to find a contact number to call someone?
You definitely should not have this income subject to self-employment tax.
There is an alternative way of reporting other income you may want to try.
