What is Schedule SE?

Schedule SE, Self-Employment Tax is used to figure self-employment tax.

TurboTax automatically generates Schedule SE and calculates your SE tax if you have at least $400 in net self-employment income. The schedule is created once you're finished entering the income and expenses from your self-employment activities.

In other instances where a Schedule SE is required (for instance, church employee income or certain types of partnership income), TurboTax will automatically create Schedule SE as well.

To view your self-employment tax calculation, simply open (continue) your return, search for the exact phrase schedule se, self-employment tax (including the comma, space, and hyphen) and then click the "Jump to" link in the search results. This will take you to the Self-Employment Tax screen. You can also make income adjustments from this screen for certain uncommon situations.
