How do I turn off the balance sheet?

TurboTax Business does a good job of determining if you need to fill out the Balance Sheet section. However, you can manually override this by turning off the balance sheet.

Before you proceed, know that TurboTax follows the IRS guidelines for determining whether you need a balance sheet. Only do this if you are sure you don't need it.
