IRS 2018 Schedule C Form and Instructions
Print IRS 2018 Schedule C Form and IRS 2018 Schedule C Instructions to prepare your 2019 Form 1040 federal income tax return.

Page one of IRS Form 1040 and Form 1040NR requests that you attach Schedule C or Schedule C-EZ to report a business income or loss. You can not file Schedule C with one of the shorter IRS forms such as Form 1040A or Form 1040EZ.

Schedule C is the long version of the simplified (easy) Schedule C-EZ form. If you are unsure as to which form to file, we suggest that you simply print and read the instructions for both. The shorter Schedule C-EZ form is just one page with one page of instructions.

Examples of when to use Schedule C:

  • Practice a profession (freelance, instructor, agent, etc).
  • Operate a business as a sole proprietor or one owner LLC.
  • Business expenses over $5,000.
  • Have inventory to report.
  • Business use of your home deductions.
  • Will report a loss or carry forward.
