Are you self-employed?
TurboTax handles all the necessary calculations, so you can file your taxes with confidence.
You'll likely receive one or more 1099-MISC forms to show the income you received for the year.
If your 1099-MISC has an amount in Box 7, called Non-Employee Compensation, the payer did not consider you an employee.
Instead, you may be a freelancer or an independent contractor, which makes you self-employed.
After you enter your 1099-MISC info in TurboTax, we'll ask you questions to be sure your income is from self-employment.
Then we'll go over your expenses.
Expenses like mileage, home office expenses, supplies, and computers can lower your tax bill.
The IRS requires you report all of your income, even if you didn't get a 1099-MISC.
So we'll also ask you to enter income you received as cash, checks, or credit card transactions.
If you accepted credit cards, you'll get a 1099-K with the amount you received in Box 1a.
