You can enter them as Supplies or Other Miscellaneous Expenses in the Business Expenses section.  If you use the Miscellaneous area, you can write a description with the amount.  Both areas are appropriate and produce the same result on your tax return.

To enter your expenses: 

  • Type Sch C in the search/find bar and click search/find.
  • Click on Jump to Sch C.
  • Click on start/edit or Add Another Business.
  • Scroll down to Business Expenses, Other Common Business Expenses
  • Continue with the onscreen interview. See the screenshot below.
