Don't delete your business if it closed sometime in 2018. Instead, report the business and make sure you select I sold (or disposed of) my business in 2018 on the Tell us about your business screen.
Otherwise, follow these instructions to delete a business that transferred over from your 2017 return but is no longer owned by you as of January 1, 2018.
- With your return open, select the Search magnifying glass in the upper right menu and search for business (schedule c). Be sure to include the parentheses.
- Select the Jump to link in the search results.
- On the Business Summary screen, select Delete next to the defunct business.
- Answer Yes to confirm the removal of all business-related forms.
