I received a 1099-MISC for income from wells in which I am an unleased mineral owner. The operator listed the income in Box 7 as Nonemployee Compensation. The tax program I'm using is treating it as business income and therefore I'm having to pay self-employment tax on it. Is this correct? I don't feel this is earned income that I should have to pay Social Security on; I work for a school district and pay into the teacher's retirement fund, not Social Security. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Kathy, please don't go off GHS, you provide lots of info on Harrison County. Living in California, I think of you as my eyes and ears. I always read your info and am glad you are providing this info.
Thanks again,
Bob
Thanks, Kathy, for your input!

Kathy, I'll add my two cents regarding casingpoints less than civil tone.  Please don't let one somewhat discourteous replay lead you to abandon us.  We need you.  :-)

Kathy,  I haven't read any of casingpoints remarks before but when I read it, I thought it was an attempt at humor.  It is not always easy to know the writer's intent. 

Thanks for the backup, Bobi Carr. One stays around the O&G business, your skin soon turns to rawhide.
