To enter your home office, vehicle mileage, supplies, and other common business expenses:

  1. Type Schedule C in the Search box.
  2. Select the Jump to link.
    • If this is your first time working in this section: You’ll be asked some questions about your self-employment work and income and then have a chance to enter your expenses.
    • If  you have already entered some information about your self-employment work:
      • Select Edit next to your business and confirm your general business info if asked.
      • Select Add expenses for this work.
