Instructions and Help about Fill Form 944 Pr Proprietorship

Hey guys, welcome to today's video where we're going to be filling out a Schedule C-EZ form 1040. This form is for reporting the net profit from a sole proprietorship business.

Moving on, you'll also need to meet certain criteria to qualify for using the Schedule C-EZ form. These criteria include not having an inventory at any time during the year, not having a net loss from your business, having only one business as either a sole proprietor, qualified joint venture, or statutory employee, and not having any employees during the year. Additionally, you should not deduct expenses for the business use of your home. It's important to note that if you hired contract work, that doesn't count as an employee. So don't worry about that. Also, if you don't have any prior year net operating losses from this business and you're not required to file a Form 4562 for depreciation or amortization, then you can proceed...
