Question

I have a question about how to file 1099-MISC Form. Do I use Schedule C for 1099-MISC reporting?

Answer

Regarding how to file 1099-MISC Form and Schedule C for 1099-MISC, use Schedule C to report income or loss from either of these:

  • A business you operated
  • A profession you practiced as a sole proprietor

An activity qualifies as a business if both of these are true:

  • Your primary purpose for engaging in the activity is for income or profit.
  • You’re involved in the activity with continuity and regularity.

Use Form 1040, Line 21 to report income or loss from an activity or a hobby that isn’t a business.
