How do I report a Form 1099-MISC with an amount in Box 3?

The amount shown on Form 1099-MISC, Box 3, is usually from one of these:

  • Prizes
  • Awards
  • Taxable damages
  • Certain benefits of a deceased employee
  • Indian gaming profits
  • Other taxable income

You'll usually report this income on Form 1040, Line 21, as "Other Income." However, you might have earned this income as part of your trade or business. If so, you'll report this amount on Schedule C.
