We have a received a 1099-MISC in 2018 & 2019 (from the same company; issued exactly the same). 2018 taxes: the income was entered on line 21 Other Income on the schedule 1 "additional income". Nothing else was entered or asked (no reason for monies, no schedule C, etc.) 2019 taxes: entered the amount under 1099 MISC, was asked what the money was for and was prompted to a schedule C asking for company name, etc. Questions: 1. Why is the tax amount different? I tried entering the correct way and I also entered it under additional income without 1099-Misc. 2. Why the change including the reason for monies and the addition of the schedule C? My husband is a HVAC tech - he received these monies as commission (bonus for sales) on the sale of equipment from the supplier. The 1099-misc is from the supplier. He is not an employee of the supplier nor is he self-employed. TIA for any help.
