Wife received a 1099-MISC for work she did part time for a company in another city. How do we enter her income ?

If your wife received a Form 1099-MISC with an amount in Box 7 for "Nonemployee Compensation", it needs to be reported on Schedule C, Profit or Loss from Business.  The IRS considers this "self-employment income".

You can input the Form 1099-MISC by following these steps in TurboTax online:

  • Login to your TurboTax Account 
  • Click "Take Me To My Return"
  • Click "Federal" from the left side of your screen
  • Scroll down to "Self Employment" and click "Show More"
  • Click "Start" next to "Income and Expenses" and then click "Yes"
  • From here, TurboTax will walk you through entering your Form 1099-MISC
