What is Schedule C-EZ?

SOLVEDby TurboTax1894Updated January 25, 2023

Schedule C-EZ was discontinued after tax year 2018. It was a simplified version of Schedule C that could be used if the taxpayer had only one business (sole proprietorship, qualified joint venture, or statutory employee) and that business met all of these conditions:

  • Used the cash method
  • Business expenses were $5,000 or less
  • Didn't have a net loss
  • Didn't carry inventory
  • Didn't have employees
  • Wasn't required to file Form 4562 for amortization and depreciation
  • Didn't have home office expenses
  • Didn't have prior-year unallowed passive activity losses

Businesses that meet these conditions in tax years 2019 and beyond will file a regular Schedule C.
