How to delete Schedule C Sole Proprietor created by TurboTax Desktop?

I have TurboTax Desktop.

It created a Schedule C Sole Proprietor.  I am trying to delete it, but every time I do, TurboTax creates it again.

How do I get rid of it?

Does Part II line 2 list income?  That income is the income generating the QBID.

 

Remove that income and the QBID will be removed.

To clarify, did you receive a 1099 NEC or 1099 MISC? If so, what type of income is it reporting?

I did not receive a 1099 NEC or 1099 MISC.

I was going through the step-by-step to enter K-1 information and accidentally created the sole proprietor and now I can't get rid of it.

Go to the section where you created the K-1 and delete the k-1 in the summary page. Reenter the information again and see if this will clear the error.

It is not listed on the K-1 summary page.

I see the others but not the sole proprietor

Take a look at this screenshot:

There is a QBI Component for the sole proprietor.  If I delete it, it just comes back.

I don't have Schedule C in my forms list.

If you go to FORMS in the upper right hand corner of the screen, do you have a form 8995 or 8995-A amongst the Federal forms?

 

If so, it may tell you what income is generating the QBI component.

 

That is the income initiating the QBI Component.

There is an 8995-A which shows the sole proprietor:

It was all zeroes in Part II.

I found a QBI Component form for the sole proprietor.  When I deleted that, I was able to finally get rid of the sole proprietor.

Thanks for the help!
