Who needs the Schedule C (Form 1040) 2016?

The Schedule C (Form 1040) is necessary for business owners, or “sole proprietors”. A sole proprietor is a business owner with no employees or partners, such as a freelance photographer.

If you earned money from a hobby or other sporadic activity, that does not count as a business.

The Schedule C (Form 1040) is also used to report any wages or expenses you had at a job that didn’t take taxes out for you. A good example of this would be an independent contractor or self-employed. You may also need to fill it out this form if you were a part of a qualifying joint venture, or received a form 1099-MISC for miscellaneous income.
