Hi and welcome to Just Answer!

Figure your cost of goods sold by filling out lines 35 through 42 of Schedule C. These lines are reproduced below.
35 Inventory at beginning of year - assuming zero.
36 Purchases less cost of items withdrawn for personal use - $50,000
37 Cost of labor. Do not include any amounts paid to yourself - zero
38 Materials and supplies - zero
39 Other costs - zero
40 Add lines 35 through 39 - $50,000
41 Inventory at end of year - $15,000
42 Cost of goods sold. Subtract line 41 from line 40 - $35,000
