Where do i enter communications expenses on schedule c

You will need to be in Self-Employed version of TurboTax online to enter Schedule C expenses. That is the only version that supports the expenses for that schedule. Follow these steps to get to where you need to start entering the details to create the Schedule C for your expenses. 

  • Log into your account and click orange Take me to my return button
  • Type schedule c in the Search box in top right corner
  • Click on jump to schedule c and this should bring you to the Did you have any income and expenses for a business in 2016? screen and you choose Yes there and follow the prompts.
    • If you have already started entering your business information and the jump to schedule c takes you to the page that says Here's the business info we have so far, you just click Edit there.
    • Then scroll down to Business Expenses section
  • Under Business Expenses you will choose Start/Update next to Other Common Business Expenses and then on the next screen, click Start/Update next to Communication and enter those expenses there.
