@uknow2388, Whether or not you can claim these items at a loss will depend on your specific tax situation. However, you technically don’t need to own a business to use TurboTax Self-Employed: https://ttlc.intuit.com/questions/3401491-what-is-turbotax-self-employed

Are you   W-2 employee, or self-employed (1099-MISC or cash)?
