On schedule C I can not get passed or override the question  Principal Business Code. I do not know where to find it. I called my paying company and they do not know.

The business code is for statistical purposes only. If you can't find one that matches your self-employment income, just enter 999999.

Hi Richard,


Here is the link for the Schedule C instructions. We can't look it up for you but the principal business codes are listed on pages 16-17: http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/i1040sc.pdf 


Note that if your business can’t be classified, enter 999999 as the principal business code.


Hope that helps!
