I just received my 1099-MISC with a total of say example $4k. How will I file this in my income tax. Is this the total income amount considered received from client minus the service fee? Or this will be on top of the actual amount received from client based on the Total Earnings by Client (2018) report.
Its the total amount charged to the client, so you have to deduct the fees on your taxes. You can cross reference it by running a transaction report for one of the months. One of the nice things about upwork 1099s is they separate the income month to month so you can see how much you made.
