How much money do i have to have made to have to file self employed

If you had $400 in cash or 1099Misc earnings you have to claim that income as self-employed.

You cannot enter a 1099Misc when you are using the Free Edition.  If you qualify, there is another free software program available from TurboTax which will allow you to enter self-employment income reported on a 1099Misc.

You qualify if your income was $33,000 or less, or $64,000 or less if active duty military, or if you qualify for Earned Income Credit

Try the Freedom Edition:
