Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

You should immediately contact the IRS and request an extension of the 12/31/16 deadline. Meeting the IRS deadlines are critical and every effort should be made to meet the deadline or call in advance of the deadline to request an extension.

Please let me know the specific areas you do not know how to complete so I can help you.

Thank you.

The form is asking for Business Name, who owns the business, who runs the business, and business records. I am not self employed. I work for a corporation. So I am not sure how to complete any of this form. Please advise. Thank you so much for taking the time to respond to my questions.

Does your tax return for 2014 include a Schedule C? If so, your tax preparer made a mistake and should not have included Schedule C. Because you are an employee, your expenses should have been included on Form 2106.

While we sort this out, call the IRS and request an extension of the deadline.

Ok thank you.
Expert:  Barbara replied 6 months ago.

If your tax preparer used Schedule C instead of Form 2106, your 2014 tax return will need to be amended.

Please let me know if I can assist you further with this.
