The local school district pays me a one-time stipend for my coaching. This is reported on a W2 with all deductions. This is part of my business and the contract is year to year. How do I report this self-employed business income?

As a soccer coach, I get paid for coaching teams and running camps or other training sessions.  This past year I only received income for coaching a school soccer team.  This is a 1-year renewable contract that pays a one-time stipend (even though the work is year-round).  
This income is reported on a W2 with all deductions made.
I always complete the self-employed tax forms but in the past had other income sources and appropriate 1099's.  This year I have no 1099 and my only business income was from the school contract.  Where do I report this income since it was already reported and taxed as a W2?


You can not report that income as business income. The W-2 means it's wages and that's the only way to report it.

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.
