There is not a particular category of business expense that would fit your disposal fees, but you can include it on your Schedule C as a miscellaneous business expense.


Use the following steps:

  • 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 “business expenses” (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 business expenses

  • Click on the blue “Jump to business expenses” link and enter your information

  • Click Edit beside the business name

  • Scroll to the Business Expenses section, click Update or Edit beside Other Common Business Expenses

  • This will open a page with many different categories of common business expenses

  • Find the section for Other Miscellaneous Expenses and click Start or Update, then enter a short description and an amount for the expense
