Schedule C-EZ, Net Profit From Business
Printable Tax Form And Instructions 2016, 2015, 2014
Page one of IRS Form 1040 requests that you attach Schedule C or Schedule C-EZ to report a business income or loss. You can not file Schedule C-EZ with one of the shorter IRS forms such as Form 1040A or Form 1040EZ. Schedule C-EZ is a simplified version of the longer Schedule C. While there are instructions on page two of the Schedule C-EZ form, we have provided a link to the longer Schedule C instructions booklet below as well.
Examples of when to use Schedule C-EZ:
- Practice a profession (freelancer, instructor, agent, etc).
- Operate a business as a sole proprietor.
- Have no employees.
- Business expenses of $5,000 or less.
- Will report a profit and not a loss.
- Do not have any inventory.
- Use the cash accounting method.
- No business use of your home deductions.
