Are cash rewards for filling out paid surveys (e.g., Swagbucks) considered taxable income, and which form/box do I fill if it is?
Thanks in advance,

Welcome to the H&R Block community.
Yes, money received from paid surveys is income to you and it is taxable. You should report the amount received on Line 7 of your 1040 return. In the H&R Block software there is an option for income received that is not reported on a W-2 or a 1099-MISC, and you'll want to use that option if you don't receive a tax form reporting the income by February. If the income was under $600 then the payer is not required to issue a 1099-MISC.
If you have any other questions I'll be glad to help.
