Am I self employed if I earned $8000 in a side job, but the majority of my income is on a w-2?

Yes, if you intend to declare the income of $8000 you earned from your side job, you are considered self employed. You will enter both the W-2 income and the self employment income in your personal return. The self employment income will be reported on Schedule C.

In order to enter Self Employment income into TurboTax

  • Login to your TurboTax online account
  • Click Take me to my return or pick up where I left off
  • In the search box (located in the upper right hand corner), type the words Schedule C
  • Click the Jump to Schedule C link that appears in the search results
  • This will take you to the self employment area of TurboTax. Enter your side job income as well as any qualified related expenses.
