What is Schedule C (Form 1040)? 

Form 1040 is a must-have form for all US citizens. It shows your income and how much taxes you need to pay. Schedule C is a variation of Form 1040 for business owners, self-employers,  and people who earn money from a hobby.

What I need Schedule C (Form 1040) for? 

You need to fill Schedule C form if you are a business owner, statutory employee, sole proprietor, and any other agent with diverse types of incomes. Knowing your incomes and losses, the government defines the taxes you need to pay. Note that if your income is less than $5,000 in business expenses, you need to fill in the 1040 schedule C-EZ form, not Schedule C. 

Filling out Schedule C (Form 1040)

The form consists of 5 parts you need to fill. On the top, you can find the fields where you need to specify the company’s name, address, accounting methods, and other details to provide the government with general information about your business.

In Part I, give information about your incomes. It is a very small and understandable section. Part II is about your expenses. In Part III, provide information about the cost of goods sold. Here you need to specify the price of materials, supplies, cost of labor, and so on. If on line 9 (Part II), you claimed car or truck expenses, fill the Part IV. If no, feel free to skip it. Part V is for declaring other expenses.
