1099 misc income

As I did last year I received 1099 misc income from investments. Last year I called it "common income", this year I called it "investment income".  TurboTax insisted that I had a business and it added a schedule C and charged me business tax.  I went around and around a loop not being able to do anything different and in frustration filed my return.  Naturally I will be paying approximately $200 in taxes that I should not be paying.

Please explain how it can avoid this in the future, and how to fix this now.

Thank you.
