I have a client...

I have a client that is a handy man out side his regular job. he receives a 1099 from 2 of his customers as he does the lawn care and maintenance for them. In the past, the tax service he has used puts his vehicle mileage on schedule A but shouldn't it go on schedule c where the 1099 income is reported?

Accountant's Assistant: The Accountant will know how to help. Is there anything else important you think the Accountant should know?

Hello, I'm Robin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now and typing up my reply. I'll post that in just a few moments.

Any expenses that are because of the self employment should ALWAYS be reported on the Schedule C. The Schedule A is only for personal or employee and not business expenses for the self employment.

If you can amend that for the taxpayer (the other years back for 3 years) they may receive a refund.

Please let me know if you need more information.
If not then please scroll up to see the STARS to rate so I am credited.
