Edit business name on Schedule c

TurboTax asked me for a business name on my Schedule C after putting in a 1099-MISC, I thought it was referring to the name of the company I got the 1099 from so I think I labeled my Sole Proprietorship as the company's name by accident. How can I edit this, and what should I put as my business name?

Edit business name on Schedule c

The business name is in the Business Profile.  If you do not have a specific name for your business (many people do not), you can use your own name for your business name.  There will be a check box to default to this selection.

Use these steps to go to the Business Profile to edit your business name:

  • On the top row of the TurboTax online screen, click on Search (or for CD/downloaded TurboTax locate the search box in the upper right corner)

  • This opens a box where you can type in “schedule c” (be sure to enter exactly as shown here) and click the magnifying glass (or for CD/downloaded TurboTax, click Find)

  • The search results will give you an option to “Jump to schedule c

  • Click on the blue “Jump to schedule c” link

  • Click Edit beside the business name

  • Click Edit beside Business Profile

  • Click Edit beside Business Name
