Foreign earned income or self employment?

I will work on a project for a Canadian company and they pay me via international wire transfer to my U.S. account. So when I file taxes, should I use foreign earned income or just self-employment income? 

This feature is pending. Thanks for your patience.

Foreign earned income or self employment?

Where will you be doing the work? If you work in the U.S. it is not foreign income. It doesn't matter where the client is located.


Foreign earned income or self employment?

Yes, I’ll be in the U.S. Also, this is just a one off project, but I guess the best way to report it would be through self-employment? Thanks!
