for 2013 What's New for 2014 Reminders Photographs of Missing Children Introduction The purpose of this publication is to provide general information about the federal tax laws that apply to small business owners who are sole proprietors and to statutory employees. 2011 1040ez form This publication has information on business income, expenses, and tax credits that may help you file your income tax return. 2011 1040ez form Are you self-employed?   You are self-employed if you carry on a trade or business as a sole proprietor or an independent contractor. 2011 1040ez form Sole proprietor. 2011 1040ez form   A sole proprietor is someone who owns an unincorporated business by himself or herself. 2011 1040ez form However, if you are the sole member of a domestic limited liability company (LLC), you are not a sole proprietor if you elect to treat the LLC as a corporation. 2011 1040ez form Trade or business. 2011 1040ez form    A trade or business is generally an activity carried on to make a profit. 2011 1040ez form The facts and circumstances of each case determine whether or not an activity is a trade or business. 2011 1040ez form You do not need to actually make a profit to be in a trade or business as long as you have a profit motive. 2011 1040ez form You do need to make ongoing efforts to further the interests of your business. 2011 1040ez form   You do not have to carry on regular full-time business activities to be self-employed. 2011 1040ez form Having a part-time business in addition to your regular job or business may be self-employment. 2011 1040ez form Independent contractor. 2011 1040ez form    People such as doctors, dentists, veterinarians, lawyers, accountants, contractors, subcontractors, public stenographers, or auctioneers who are in an

contractors or employees depends on the facts in each case. 2011 1040ez form The general rule is that an individual is an independent contractor if the payer has the right to control or to direct only

form Limited liability company (LLC). 2011 1040ez form   A limited liability company (LLC) is an entity formed under state law by filing articles of organization. 2011 1040ez form Generally, a

election to be treated as a qualified joint venture instead of a partnership for the tax year. 2011 1040ez form Making this election will allow you to avoid the complexity of Form 1065 but still give each spouse credit for social security earnings on which retirement benefits are based. 2011 1040ez form For an explanation of "material participation," see the Instructions for Schedule C, line G. 2011 1040ez form   To make this election, you must divide all items of income, gain, loss, deduction, and credit attributable to the business between you and your spouse in accordance with your
