I agreed with the IRS in 2016 to amortize my 2013 business startup costs over 15 years. The business is closed, so no schedule C. Where can I put the annual amount now?

Since you closed your business, you‘ll need to deduct the remaining unamortized start-up costs as a business expense in the tax year that the business was closed.  You’ll report them in Miscellaneous Expenses, and describe them as long-term capital losses.

Another CPA told me I should account for them as long-term capital losses, instead of Misc Expenses.  Which is correct?
