1099-Misc question. how does medicare and Social Security get paid.

We received a 1099-Misc for work my wife did with a travel agent.  Since nothing was taken out of the pay when she received it, how does social security and medicare get paid? 

I was expecting TurboTax to tell to me to pay them, but I don't see that happening.  I do see when I enter the 1099-Misc, my refund gets reduced, so it's taking some money out for taxes I'm assuming, does that include payments into medicare and social security? 

This feature is pending. Thanks for your patience.

1099-Misc question. how does medicare and Social Security get paid.

For self-employment income where there is a net profit you will have Self-Employment taxes owed and reported on a Schedule SE.  The self-employment taxes are both the employer and employee taxes for Social Security and Medicare.
One-half of the SE taxes are deductible and are entered as an Adjustment to Income on Form 1040 Line 27 from Schedule SE
