How do I delete a prior-year Schedule C business that transferred over?

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.


  1. 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.
  2. Select the Jump to link in the search results.
  3. On the Business Summary screen, select Delete next to the defunct business.
  4. Answer Yes to confirm the removal of all business-related forms.
