If you are not a W-2 employee, the IRs considers you to be self employed.
If you earned more than $400 net income (income less expenses) working as a self-employed individual (or independent contractor), you must file a Schedule C, business income and expenses with your personal return and pay self-employment tax of 15.3% (Social Security and Medicare tax-same as a W-2)
If you otherwise earned enough to file a return, you must report your self-employment income, no matter how small.
To enter your business income and expenses:
· Type in schedule c in the search box, top right of your screen, click the magnifying glass
· Click the jump to schedule c ink in the search results.
