Where do I enter my business expenses in TurboTax CD/Download Home Business?

Once you've set up your business in TurboTax follow these steps:

  1. Choose the Business tab.
  2. Then select Start/Update next to Profit or Loss from Business.
  3. Select Edit next to the name of your business.
  4. Go to Business Expenses section to choose the appropriate category for your expense.

If you haven't set up your business yet, follow the instructions to do so. You'll then be able to enter your expenses in the Federal Taxes section.

These don't have the Business tab. Instead:

  1. Choose the Federal Taxes tabs.
  2. Select Wages & Income.
  3. Then select I'll choose what I work on.
  4. Near the bottom of the Income Summary screen, select Start/Update next to Business Income and Expenses (Sch C).
  5. After you've entered your business info and income, we'll ask about your expenses.
