How can I file a 1099-NEC in TT business edition, Windows Desktop? Searching for the form does nothing. And the ability to add a form in forms mode disappeared years ago.
Do you need to prepare the 1099NEC?
You can prepare W2s and 1099s by starting a new return, go to FILE - NEW TAX RETURN
On the Work on a Tax Return screen or Welcome to TurboTax screen , scroll down to the bottom and click the blue Prepare W-2/1099 button.
On the next screen, Choose where to prepare your forms, click the Online or Desktop option. You can only prepare 1099-Int & Div using the Online option.
I have received a paper 1099-NEC and wish to "attach" it to my Federal return yet still e-File.
The relevant NEC income is already accounted for (it was some rental assistance for a tenant, so just got counted as rent).
As a rental property owner, I also prepare and e-File 1099-NEC's for contractors and tradespeople who work on the property, per recent IRS rules. For those I use the online system you mention.
Don't worry about that. If the IRS wants to see it they will mail you a letter. But whose ssn or EIN is on the 1099NEC? The IRS might be expecting to see it on your personal return.
> But whose ssn or EIN is on the 1099NEC?
The 1099-NEC in question is issued to the Trust. I'm aware the IRS likely already received the form electronically from the payor. Still, a place to put it into TurboTax would feel better.
> That is rather strange, or at least not typical. Did the trust perform services for the issuer?
The trust operates a rental.
The renter got into trouble paying rent.
The renter received a rent subsidy, so a non-profit issued a rent payment directly to the Trust, and reported the payment on 1099-NEC
It's a rent control jurisdiction, so super complex, but the above is the essence. I just booked the payment as regular rent, crediting the renter, and paying normal taxes on it.
