Schedule C - Deleting from Form 1099-MISC Entries

When you enter information from a Form 1099-MISC Miscellaneous Income, or a Form 1099-NEC Nonemployee Compensation, TaxAct may automatically create a Schedule C (Form 1040) Profit or Loss From Business and attach it to your return. If you manually create a Schedule C in addition to the one provided, you may have two Schedules C that need to be consolidated.

To consolidate the income and delete the extra Schedule C in TaxAct:

  1. From within your TaxAct return (Online or Desktop), click Federal (on smaller devices, click in the top left corner of your screen, then click Federal).
  2. Click the Business Income dropdown, then click Business income or loss from a sole proprietorship.
  3. Click Edit to edit the form that you want to consolidate all of the information on (desktop program: click Review instead of Edit).
  4. Continue with the interview process to enter all of the information on Schedule C.
  5. On the screen titled Complete your Schedule(s) C, click the trash icon next to the Schedule C that needs to be deleted.
