What is Schedule SE?

Schedule SE, Self-Employment Tax, is used to calculate the Social Security and Medicare tax (SE tax) paid by self-employed individuals, or individuals who do side work, like Uber or Lyft, as this income is considered self-employment income.

Once you enter your income and expenses from your self-employment activities, if you have at least $400 in net self-employment income, we create a Schedule SE and calculate your SE tax.

We also create this form when it’s needed for another reason, for instance, church employee income or certain types of partnership income.
