  3. Then either link to Schedule C, F, or Form 4835, or check one of the boxes for Tribal Member Gaming Payments, Winnings (Prizes, etc), Alaska Permanent Fund, or Other Income.
    • If you link to Schedule C, it will flow to the Income transferred from 1099-MISC worksheet or W-2 Income worksheet above the Gross Receipts line.
    • If you link to Schedule F, the income will flow to the Other Income line.
    • If you link to Form 4835, the income will flow to the Other Income line.

How do I enter Box 7 for Nonemployee Compensation?

In tax year 2019 and prior Nonemployee compensation was reported on the 1099-Misc Box 7 however, in tax year 2020 the IRS released a new 1099-NEC form. For help entering the 1099-NEC in tax year 2020 or newer see How to enter Form 1099-NEC, Nonemployee Compensation in ProSeries

In tax year 2019 and prior enter nonemployee compensation on the 1099-Misc worksheet box 7 and choose where you want the nonemployee compensation to flow to. If you choose to report nonemployee compensation as Wages on the 1040 the 8919 is required. For each firm listed on Form 8919, or each Form 1099-MISC with an entry in box 7 that is reported on Form 8919, a reason code must be entered. This code identifies the reason for filing Form 8919. The valid codes are:

  • A - The person has filed Form SS-8 and received a determination letter stating that I am an employee of this firm. The date of the letter must be entered as the 'determination' date.
  • C - The person has received other correspondence from the IRS that states that the person is an employee of the firm or payer of the Form 1099-MISC. The date of the letter must be entered as the 'determination' date.
  • G - The person has filed a Form SS-8 with the IRS and has not received a reply.
  • H - The person received a Form W-2 and a Form 1099-MISC from this firm this year.  The amount on Form 1099-MISC should have been included as wages on Form W-2. (Do not file Form SS-8 if you select code H.)
