Your booth rent expense would be entered in the same general area as your other business expenses.  Since there is not a specific category that would fit it well, you can enter it as a Miscellaneous Expense.  This category will allow you to type a short description and the amount.

Use these steps to get to the Miscellaneous Expense section:

  • On the top row of the TurboTax online screen, click on Search (or for CD/downloaded TurboTax locate the search box in the upper right corner)

  • This opens a box where you can type in “schedule c” (be sure to enter exactly as shown here) and click the magnifying glass (or for CD/downloaded TurboTax, click Find)

  • The search results will give you an option to “Jump to schedule c

  • Click on the blue “Jump to schedule c” link

  • Click Edit beside your business name

  • Scroll to the Business Expenses section and click Update beside Other Common Business Expenses

  • Scroll down and click Start or Update beside the Other Miscellaneous Expenses section at the bottom of the page

  • Enter a short description and your expense amount
