    If this is business income you don't need a Form 1099.  Self-employment income should be based on your records.   The Forms 1099 are primarily for the IRS, and only a reminder to you.

    Such payments are reported under the wages and income tab, in the business income category.  Once entered, Turbotax will automatically compute a Schedule C (Net Profit from Business) and, if appropriate, a Schedule SE for self-employment tax.
    • Additional note:  Even if you do receive 1099s, it is not necessary to input them individually in Turbo Tax.  You can bypass the 1099 question and enter your gross income data from your own records.  This can be helpful if you have a lot of 1099s.  It is still a good idea to verify the amounts being reported on form 1099s with the amounts in your records.
    • Don't you need the payer's EIN?  Where do you report it - on the "income not on a 1099" page?

    You do not need the payer's EIN on a Form 1099 unless the payer withheld federal income taxes.

      People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

      1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
      2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
      3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
      4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
      5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
