If you are a single member LLC, then the IRS considers you a "Disregarded Entity" for tax purposes, unless you have applied for S-Corp tax status.  As a disregarded entity you report your income and expenses on Schedule C.  If using TurboTax Online, you would use the Self-Employed version.  If you don't have any business expense to report, you can complete Schedule C and report your income using Deluxe or Premier.  If you need to switch to Self-Employed, the program will make the upgrade based on answers you give in the interview.

If your LLC has more than one member, you will need to file Form 1065. If your LLC has received S-Corp status you will need to prepare Form 1120S.  These returns can be prepared using TurboTax Business.
