On Schedule C, what is the difference bteween "Office Expencese" and "Other Office Expenses"? What type of items would go in either?

"Office expenses" are usually things like stationery and other office supplies, copier toner, printer ink cartridges, etc.

I don't see a line for "other office expense" on the Sch. C. Can you be more specific?

"Other Expenses" is listed under Part V of Schedule C (Form 1040). Line 48 I think. And it that fighure goes into Line 27 on page 1. These line numbers are from the 1998 forms because I'm not at work right now and don't have the curent forms in front of me. So please forgive any minor errors in the location of this catagory.
Thanx for your help.

LloydMSW,

I suspected that you meant "Other expenses." This is not "Other office expenses". Other expenses are anything that is a legitimate business expense which doesn't fit neatly into the categories provided in Lines 8 - 26. The Sch C instructions refer you to Pub 535, Business Expenses for further info.

Thanx for the replay and the clarification. It's amazing how the mind can latch on to something and not let go of it even if it's wrong and you know it. It's kind-o like having a tune stuck in your head.
