I'll have strike income (payment from my union while I was on strike) to report this year. How do I report it in FreeTaxUSA? I'm finding lots of different answers, and they all talk about how to report it in different software so I'm not sure how it translates.

    Strike benefits paid by a union are considered earned income. You should receive Form 1099-MISC from the union showing how much they paid you. You would enter it in the appropriate screen for Form 1099-MISC in FreeTaxUSA.
