I have a question about doing business as form issues. If I list my business as "doing business as" (DBA), do I need to file additional forms?
Regarding doing business as form concerns, as a self-employed individual listed as “doing business as” (DBA), you only have to file these forms if appropriate to your self-employment business:
- Form 1040
- Schedule C
- Schedule SE if your net income minus expenses from self-employment is 400 or more
- LLC, corporation, or partnership returns if you’re doing business as one of these entities
Enter “[Your name] DBA [Your business name]” on Schedule C, Line C, or other appropriate forms for the LLC, corporation, or partnership entities. If you have an employer identification number (EIN), enter it on Line D.
