Can a priest who gets 1099 misc. and box 3 (other income) filled use Schedule C?

Highlighted
Level 3

My client who performs religious ceremonies at people's residences received a 1099 misc. form from one individual. Box 3 shows $20,000. This is the first time he received this from. He also works for another company as an employee and received a W2.

Can I link this Box 3 amount to Schedule C, and take auto and other expenses for him by creating self-employed business of conducting religious activities.

Thank you in advance.

That sounds like the correct course of action to me.

You cannot include for purposes of the Sched C any vehicle use or supplies expense or other costs that relate to the W2 job.

Out of curiosity, did ONE individual pay this person $20,000 for his own religious ceremonies?  [Wow].  Or is that person that paid $20,000 a business that set up religious ceremonies for several other people?

Did you ask about this payment? Because box 3 could be some sort of Mission Support. Box 7 would be used for Services Provided.
