I am a US citizen living abroad and have less than $10k of foreign earned income for 2018. I pay only US Social Security taxes under a Totalization Agreement.
This year Turbo Tax will not allow me to calculate my Social Security payment on the SE form - it says that I do not qualify, despite the fact that the IRS states that I must pay "social security and Medicare tax on net earnings from self-employment of $400 or more a year".
I've tried to enter the information manually but am unable to make any inputs on the SE form. HELP!!!
Please make sure you entered your self-employment income and expenses on Schedule C and the gross profit in the Foreign Income Section of TurboTax. Then TurboTax should calculate the self-employment tax due.
