About Tax Schedule C
What is the Schedule C Tax Form for and how do I file it?
The Schedule C Tax Form is the Profit or Loss From Business.
The Schedule C works in conjunction with your Tax Form 1040 for the U.S. individuals who are to file a federal income tax return.
As an individual taxpayer if you are running a business a Schedule C is to be filed for engaging in business activities. If the business you are operating as a reportable profit and loss a Schedule C will need to be filed with your 1040 Tax Form. Reportable business activities are from a business you operated or a profession you practiced as a sole proprietor.
