Should I report my income as a privately paid caregiver as self employed or as miscellaneous income?

Most taxpayers who are independent contractors file their income on a Schedule C so they can report their expenses and mileage as well. If you do not have any expenses or mileage to report you could simply file this as miscellaneous income. Turbo Tax will help you navigate how to do either option.
