I am having the same issue.
I am reporting the 1099-MISC as a miscellaneous income in TurboTax and not as a 1099-MISC.
If you start adding a 1099-MISC Turbotax is going to send some forms to the government as if you own your own company.
I am having njow issues with FTB in California contactingnme thinking that I own a company which is not the case.
All these issues have been triggered by Fotolia LLC sending out the 1099-MISC form.
I have been reading a lot about this.
A lot of people are complaining about this but Fotolia LLC (owned by Adobe) never did a thing to resolve this issue.
No idea what you are complaining about, but Fotolia is now Adobe stock. If you have a specific question, formulate this as a question. If you have information about some specific tax handling, formulate your information in such a way, that even people not speaking 1099-MISC-form can understand what you mean.
I think that a moderator has detached your reply from a different post. I do not know, however, if that has been done by error or on purpose.
Sorry but you don't know what you're talking about.
I receive many 1099 income statements each year as required by US tax laws. This does not mean you are self-employed. It means you earned personal income over and above what you normally receive from your employer. For example, gambling & lottery winnings, stock dividends, bank account interest, private consulting fees or income earned from Etsy or Stock photo sales. The 1099-MISC statement is to help you declare this miscellaneous personal income on your tax return.
I urge you to consult an experienced tax adviser (besides TurboTax) to help you and answer your questions.
