Do you have a TurboTax Online account?

We'll help you get started or pick up where you left off.

Why can't I enter Schedule C Expenses manually without purchasing additional software? This seems like a rip-off to me!

If you have only income from self-employment and no expenses, there is no need to upgrade from Deluxe. If you do have expenses, however, that will trigger an upgrade to the TurboTax Self-Employed edition.

Expenses, however, could reduce your total income and overall tax bill. Including SE tax (social security/medicare tax) of 15% and a 15% tax rate, $280 of expenses would save you around $84 in taxes. At 25% tax bracket, it would mean a $112 saving, and so on.
