Where do I enter amounts from a 1099-MISC?

SOLVEDby IntuitProConnect Tax41Updated July 13, 2022

Since Form 1099-MISC is used to report many different types of income, there's no one place in ProConnect Tax to enter this source document. This article will help you determine where to enter different 1099-MISC amounts to report them appropriately on your clients' individual tax returns.

  1. On the left side menu, select Income. Then click on the SS Benefits, Alimony, Misc. Income screen.
  2. Scroll down to the Alimony and Other Income section.
  3. Enter the amount and a description in Other Income (Click on button to expand).

This amount will flow to Form 1040, Schedule 1, as Other Income.

In order to claim tax withheld on 1099-MISC income, the IRS and most states require ProConnect Tax to recreate a digital copy of the Form 1099-MISC your client received and include it in the e-filed return. The program uses your input in Form 1099-MISC/NEC for E-File Returns to meet this agency requirement, AND to report withholding amounts on the appropriate federal or state return.

  1. On the left side menu, select Income, then click on SS Benefits, Alimony, Misc. Income.
  2. At the top right, click the Form 1099-MISC/NEC hyperlink.
  3. Enter the Payer Information.
  4. Scroll down to the Form 1099-Misc section and enter the box 4 amount in (4) Federal income tax withheld.
  5. Enter amounts for any other fields that were completed on the 1099-MISC.
  6. Scroll down to the State Information section.
  7. Enter the box 16 amount in State tax withheld.
  8. Select the State from the drop-down menu.
  9. Enter the box 16 identifier in Payer's state no.
  10. Enter the box 17 amount in State Income.

Important: Income amounts entered on this screen will not flow to the tax returns. You must follow the steps for the other box amounts you received in this article in addition to completing this screen when withholding is present.

However, federal and state tax withheld entered on this screen do flow to the appropriate line of the tax return (Form 1040, line 25b, for federal amounts). This withholding should not be duplicated or re-entered anywhere else in the tax return.

Should be included as income on the Schedule C.

  1. On the left-side menu, select Income.
  2. Click on the Business Income (Sch C) screen.
  3. Select the Income Statement section along the top of the input.
  4. Enter the amount in Gross receipts or sales.
