Hello..Just wanted to get confirmation...In Schedule C for self employed....when calculating receipts for items purchased from i include or exclude sales tax?



When counting your expenses you will report the total amount that you paid.


If you paid sales tax then it is part of your expense to deduct.

If you did not pay sales tax your deduction is that total without tax.


Please ask if you need clarification or more discussion.

Thank you.
