Where do I enter a Schedule C or C-EZ?

In TurboTax Home & Business, simply search for Schedule C inside your TurboTax program, and then click the Jump to Schedule C link in the search results. We'll automatically create the schedule you need, C or C-EZ, based on your entries.

If you're in a lower-tier version, you'll be prompted to upgrade to Home & Business first. However, in the 2014 Deluxe and Premier version, you can complete Schedule C or C-EZ without upgrading, provided your business only claims the standard mileage deduction, phone expenses, and/or less than $100 in miscellaneous expenses.

To avoid the upgrade prompt, you'll have to sneak in through the back door by entering your business income in Box 7 of 1099-MISC. As long as you meet the conditions (less than $100 in miscellaneous expenses, etc.) we'll create the right schedule for your business situation and you won't have to upgrade your Deluxe or Premier version.
