Where do I put box 6 info from 1099-Misc

Enter in the Other Common Income section:

  • In your open return, select My Account
  • Tools
  • Topic Search
  • Type '1099-MISC in the box, then select GO

If you previously entered a 1099-MISC, then select the '+Add Another 1099-MISC' link in the lower left. 

Otherwise, on the page, Let's get the info from your 1099-MISC, mark the small box that reads 'My form has other info in boxes 1-18'. This will open up the form for your box 6 entry.

Why is this considered self employment income? It is reimbursement benefit for health insurance that we pay for monthly. It doesn't cover the whole premium.

Go back through the interview and be sure to mark the button, 'no, it did'nt involve an intent to earn money'. Then it will flow to the correct line.
