Where in Turbotax self-employed do they ask about meals while on business? I just completed the section on business expenses and it didn't ask about meals.

Here's how to enter your meals:

  • Under Income & Expenses (tab at the top of your screen), click Review next to Self-employment income and expenses (this assumes that you have already entered your self-employed income).
    1. Click Review again next to the specific self-employed activity and scroll down to the Expenses category.
    2. Click Add expenses for this work.
    3. A list of expenses will pop up. Look carefully for the subsection on meals and click Continue.
