1099-MISC, self and 1099-MISC, spouse

kimsdion Member
In our gig economy, both myself and my spouse have consulting income from side jobs. I'd love to see the 1099-MISC:Non-Employee Compensation line item duplicated to reflect self and spouse so I can track our consulting income separately in the Tax Planner.

    I voted this up, but two things.
    1. Even the original poster needs to vote. Just posting leaves it with zero votes.
    2. OP, I am going to suggest that a moderator change your ID on this forum not to be your email address. Posting with your email address allows scammers and spammers to go after you.

    Someone with a better tax background than myself will probably have to chime in here ...
    As far as I can see it, all the 1099-MISC lines would have to be duplicated into
    • 1099-MISC (Copy 1), Self: ...
    • 1099-MISC (Copy 2), Spouse: ...
    so that this can be properly recorded and transferred to tax software.
    On second thought ... what if someone gets more than one form 1099-MISC throughout the year, not just Self and Spouse but Job 1, Job 2, Job 3 ... that would make it necessary to support more than just 2 copies, perhaps even up to 10 or more.
    Quicken programmers: what do you say?

    I think these of Tags will address the situation(s) you describe - a unique Tag for each 1099 source. The Tax Schedule Report will subtotal by Tag.

    I am not sure Tags, or separate Tax Line Items, will address the OP's query - where he wants separate totals in the Tax Planner.
    I am not intimately familiar with the Tax Planner but looking at a somewhat similar example in my file - I have SocSec income for both Self and Spouse and each has a separate category and separate Tax Line Item (Self & Spouse). Looking at the Tax Planner, these two sources are reported as a combined total. The Tax Schedule Report does provide separate totals for each.

    I think it would take some serious revision to the Tax Planner to get the OP's desired results.

    Re-read J_Mike's reply.  It completely answers your question.

    If you setup each of your side hustles as two separate business in Quicken HBR, then assign 1 to "self" and 1 to "spouse" (image 1), income will pass separately to tax planner (image 2).  You'll also have two separate business tags one for each side hustle.

    I've not tried this, but there seems to be existing functionality without adding complication to tax schedules.  Of course, you would have to purchase Home, Business and Rental version of Quicken, if you don't already own it.

    Just to chime in with another view...

    I think @UKR, @J_Mike and @Scooterlam have laid out reasonable alternatives on how one can currently "see the ...1099-MISC:Non-Employee Compensation  ... [of] self and spouse so I can track our consulting income separately" albeit not within the tax planner.  Actually using Quicken accounts and reports (not the tax planner) is, I believe, a more effective way of tracking this information throughout the year.

    However the tax planner actually already provides for tracking the income and expenses of "self" and "spouse" on the "Business Income or Loss - Schedule C" tab/screen of tax planner.  The total "hustle" income of each (which eventually ends up on two or more 1099-NEC forms) would be displayed there as well as related expenses.  This format, by the way, is how it works for a joint tax return (i.e.- a H and W will each have to file a Schedule C and the Schedule C's are combined on one line of the Form 1040 - which is how tax planner is handling and displaying it now.

    So I won't be voting up the above suggestion, because it is not needed.
