Self-Employed FAQs -
Q. What tax schedule must I fill out if I am self-employed?
A.For nearly all self-employed persons, a Schedule SE, Self Employment Tax, must be filled out and attached to their federal income tax return. There are two types of Schedule SEs, the Short SE and the Long SE. You are usually better off with the latter, even if it is longer. The Schedule SE will help you calculate how much you owe in self-employment tax.
