Where do I find Schedule SE?

Schedule SE (Self-Employment Tax) calculates the Social Security and Medicare tax ("SE tax") on profits from self-employment and certain other income.

If you made at least $400 in profits from self-employment, or if Schedule SE is otherwise required (for example, church employee income), we'll automatically fill it out and attach it to your return. We figure out your self-employment tax from the income you report and the info you give us on expenses for your self-employment work.

  • The amount of your self-employment tax (the amount on Schedule SE) is incorporated into the running amount of your total tax refund, or tax owed, displayed in TurboTax as you work on your return.

You can also visit the Schedule SE interview in TurboTax by following the steps below.

Tip: For best results, enter your income and expenses before attempting to adjust Schedule SE.

  1. Open (continue) your return if its not already open.
  2. Inside TurboTax, search for "sch SE" and then click or tap the "Jump to" link in the search results.
  3. On the Self-Employment Tax screen, click or tap Make Adjustments and follow the onscreen instructions.
