Accounting for Overhead Expenses in Your Prices

Take your total overhead expense number and divide it by the number of items. Add that number to the sales price of each item you list for sale. For example, $1000 in annual overhead divided by making 350 items this year means I need to increase the price of each item by $2.85 or so to recoup a chunk of overhead in every sale I make.

There is no where to report owner withdrawals on the Schedule C, or any other tax form for a sole proprietorship. If your business has a net income of $20k, you are going to be taxed on that $20k.
