1099 Schedule C

[ Edited ]

I starting selling products for a company and they send out a 1099 Schedule C. I am trying to fill out my taxes but in order to file my 1099 I have to pay for the business program. My year to date comission is only $75, do I have to file it? I haven't even recieved my 1099 yet but I know they are sending them out this week.

Re: 1099 Schedule C



Have you tried to enter the $75 you earned as a comission on line 21 (other income) and have it be not subject to SE tax?

Since you made less than the threshhold for Self-Employment Tax (SE Tax) you would not be liable for that tax.  And,

entering it on line 21 would fulfill the requirement to report the income you made.


Good Luck!!

Re: 1099 Schedule C

As a side note, if your income was only $75, you may not receive a 1099-MISC for that amount. The payer is only required to issue a 1099-MISC if they pay more than $600 for the year.
