Schedule C & Schedule SE
Question: I have run a small business in the past, but this year I had no income or expenses from the business, is it necessary for me to file a Schedule C?
If your sole proprietorship business is inactive during the full year, it is not necessary to file a Schedule C (Form 1040) (PDF), Profit or Loss from Business, for that year.
