How do I add Inventory to an existing company?



I started my sole proprietorship last year and filed my taxes using the TurboTax "self-employed" software. This year I have sub-contracted labour (aka Direct Labour Costs?) that I need to enter as an expense. I didn't run payroll, this was a one time thing. The trouble is, when I click on the "Income and Inventory" menu item, then click on "skip income", it doesn't bring me to inventory, it brings me to "work-related vehicle expenses" instead. I have a feeling that it's because last year when I set the business up in TurboTax, I probably didn't select the inventory option for my business (it's a software company, so no physical inventory).


Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

Answer No to vehicle expenses.  Then go on to other expenses and enter this expense as contract labor.
