Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hello and thank you for using Just Answer,
Reporting the cash award woulr depend on why you were paid this amount.
A scientific young investigator award- poster presentation.
At a conference type of event.
So you entered a contest with your poster. You would simply include the amount on your tax return line 21 Other Income.
It will be added to your income for the year.
You may find that the organization does issue you a 1099MISC
May I help you with anything else?
Thanks. I have another tax question- not sure if it should be included...
Is it about the award?
I can ask a separate question if it helps.
Just Answer does require that we remind about the need to satrt a new question.
Your positive rating is always thanks enough.
