No, if there is no income and no expenses, there would be nothing to file so you don't need to include it on your return.  If you otherwise qualify for the free version, then yes you can use TurboTax Absolute Zero.

There is only 12 dollars income and no expenses. Do I still have to file a schedule C? I have a sole proprietorship. My books are on Amazon. Otherwise, I'm not making or spending money .
