Schedule C 2017 tax return line 20 7A other expenses what’s all included in the line thank you

Schedule C, Line 27A is a catch-all line used for "Other Expenses" that don't quite fit in any other category. One example may be for something like bank fees. Put expenses into specific categories where possible. Those expenses that don't fit neatly into categories go into "Other expenses (miscellaneous). There's nothing in stone here.

Please feel free to post any additional details or questions in the comment section.

Here's from the IRS instructions:

" Include all ordinary and necessary business expenses not deducted elsewhere on Schedule C. List the type and amount of each expense separately in the space provided. Enter the total on lines 48 and 27a. Do not include the cost of business equipment or furniture, replacements or permanent improvements to property, or personal, living, and family expenses. Do not include charitable contributions. Also, you cannot deduct fines or penalties paid to a government for violating any law. For details on business expenses, see Pub. 535."

That would be the perfect spot! Enter "Uber/Lyft Service Fee" under "Miscellaneous expenses"
