    How to claim mower/trimmer gas on schedule c?

    I just need some help on the topic above as this is my first yr doing my taxes for my business. I'm just confused on where I list the gas for my equipment. Also, would the mower parts/trimmer string go under supplies? I just wanted to ask you guys since many of you have been doing this for years. Thanks guys.

    You need different files for different things.

    You could make an account for gas and another one for supplies (trimmer line, mower parts, blades, aire filter, etc.) You can also do another account named equipment and that could be for when you buy a new trimmer, edger, mower, blower, etc.

    I have my record keeping down, I'm just trying to figure out on which lines on schedule C do I put the gas for the equipment, and replacement parts/trimmer line.

    I don't use Schedule C... I use Simply accounting.

    But, just put it in the right file. It is up to you. As long as you have your receipts.

    When you file your taxes you have to use schedule C to claim your expenses. This is what I'm talkingablut. I use excel for my spreadsheets. I have QuickBooks pro but I don't like it.

    Ok, I understand you. Well, I am of no help there... I am in Canada. I don't deal with the IRS.

    I had the same feelings. Then switched to ZipBooks. I can depend solely on excel because I am not that expert in VBA or access. So I love to have simple accounting solution for myself.
