I have a Schedule C/C-EZ present in view after deleting it in Data Entry. How can I stop this from being created?
If you have a return that continues to create a Schedule C after it has been deleted in Data Entry, it is being generated as a result of entries that are present on the 1099-MISC.
If this issue is occurring, view the return and select the Schedule C/C-EZ. When you select this form, view the Business Information section at the top of the form and review line C Business Name.
On the Schedule C/C-EZ line C Business Name will look similar to the following:
Note: If you have more than one 1099-MISC, you will need to review each of them to ensure that none are erroneously pointed to the Schedule C.
To remove the unnecessary Schedule C/C-EZ, go into Data Entry > General Tab > Screen 99M 1099-MISC Miscellaneous Income > complete one of the following scenarios:
- Remove or change the entry in the For dropdown at the top of the screen
- Delete the 1099-MISC by pressing CTRL+D if applicable.
- Complete the 1099-MISC as applicable.
Note: If you complete Step 1 or 2 above, you will need to delete the Schedule C screen that was created in Data Entry before viewing or calculating the return.
