Free federal tax forms 2011 You must include the payee's identification number and your identification number on the returns and statements. Free federal tax forms 2011 Employee. Free federal tax forms 2011   If you have employees, you must get an SSN from each of them. Free federal tax forms 2011 Record the name and SSN of each employee exactly as they are shown on the employee's social security card. Free federal tax forms 2011 If the employee's name is not correct as shown on the card, the employee should request a new card from the SSA. Free federal tax forms 2011 This may occur if the employee's name was changed due to marriage or divorce.

Free federal tax forms 2011   To get the payee's SSN or EIN, use Form W-9, Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification. Free federal tax forms 2011   A payee who does not provide you with an identification number may be subject to backup withholding. Free federal tax forms 2011 For information on backup withholding, see the Form W-9 instructions and the General Instructions for Certain Information Returns.

Free federal tax forms 2011 How Do I File? File your income tax return on Form 1040 and attach Schedule C or Schedule C-EZ. Free federal tax forms 2011 Enter the net profit or loss from Schedule C or Schedule C-EZ on page 1 of Form 1040. Free federal tax forms 2011 Use Schedule C to figure your net profit or loss from your business. Free federal tax forms 2011 If you operated more than one business as a sole proprietorship, you must attach a separate Schedule C for each business. Free federal tax forms 2011 You can use the simpler Schedule C-EZ if you operated only one business as a sole proprietorship, you did not have a net loss, and you meet the other requirements listed in Part I of the schedule.

Federal income tax is a pay-as-you-go tax. Free federal tax forms 2011 You must pay it as you earn or receive income during the year. Free federal tax forms 2011 An employee usually has income tax withheld from his or her pay. Free federal tax forms 2011 If you do not pay your tax through withholding, or do not pay enough tax that way, you might have to pay estimated tax. Free federal tax forms 2011 You generally have to make estimated tax payments if you expect to owe taxes, including self-employment tax (discussed later), of $1,000 or more when you file your return. Free federal tax forms 2011 Use Form 1040-ES to figure and pay the tax.

Free federal tax forms 2011 For more information on estimated tax, see Publication 505, Tax Withholding and Estimated Tax.

Free federal tax forms 2011 The IRS will figure the penalty for you and send you a bill.

Free federal tax forms 2011 For more information, see Publication 505. Free federal tax forms 2011 Self-Employment (SE) Tax Self-employment tax (SE tax) is a social security and Medicare tax primarily for individuals who work for themselves. Free federal tax forms 2011 It is similar to the social security and Medicare taxes withheld from the pay of most wage earners. Free federal tax forms 2011 If you earned income as a statutory employee, you do not pay SE tax on that income. Free federal tax forms 2011 Social security coverage. Free federal tax forms 2011   Social security benefits are available to self-employed persons just as they are to wage earners. Free federal tax forms 2011 Your payments of SE tax contribute to your coverage under the social security system. Free federal tax forms 2011 Social security coverage provides you with retirement benefits, disability benefits, survivor benefits, and hospital insurance (Medicare) benefits. Free federal tax forms 2011 By not reporting all of your self-employment income, you could cause your social security benefits to be lower when you retire. Free federal tax forms 2011 How to become insured under social security. Free federal tax forms 2011   You must be insured under the social security system before you begin receiving social security benefits. Free federal tax forms 2011 You are insured if you have the required number of credits (also called quarters of coverage), discussed next. Free federal tax forms 2011 Earning credits in 2013 and 2014. Free federal tax forms 2011   For 2013, you received one credit, up to a maximum of four credits, for each $1,160 ($1,200 for 2014) of income subject to social security taxes. Free federal tax forms 2011 Therefore, for 2013, if you had income (self-employment and wages) of $4,640 that was subject to social security taxes, you receive four credits ($4,640 ÷ $1,160). Free federal tax forms 2011   For an explanation of the number of credits you must have to be insured and the benefits available to you and your family under the social security program, consult your nearest Social Security Administration (SSA) office. Free federal tax forms 2011    Making false statements to get or to increase social security benefits may subject you to penalties. Free federal tax forms 2011 The Social Security Administration (SSA) time limit for posting self-employment income. Free federal tax forms 2011   Generally, the SSA will give you credit only for self-employment income reported on a tax return filed within 3 years, 3 months, and 15 days after the tax year you earned the income. Free federal tax forms 2011 If you file your tax return or report a change in your self-employment income after this time limit, the SSA may change its records, but only to remove or reduce the amount. Free federal tax forms 2011 The SSA will not change its records to increase your self-employment income. Free federal tax forms 2011 Who must pay self-employment tax. Free federal tax forms 2011   You must pay SE tax and file Schedule SE (Form 1040) if either of the following applies. Free federal tax forms 2011 Your net earnings from self-employment (excluding church employee income) were $400 or more. Free federal tax forms 2011 You had church employee income of $108. Free federal tax forms 2011 28 or more. Free federal tax forms 2011 The SE tax rules apply no matter how old you are and even if you are already receiving social security or Medicare benefits. Free federal tax forms 2011 SE tax rate. Free federal tax forms 2011   For 2013, the SE tax rate on net earnings is 15. Free federal tax forms 2011 3% (12. Free federal tax forms 2011 4% social security tax plus 2. Free federal tax forms 2011 9% Medicare tax). Free federal tax forms 2011 Maximum earnings subject to SE tax. Free federal tax forms 2011   Only the first $113,700 of your combined wages, tips, and net earnings in 2013 is subject to any combination of the 12. Free federal tax forms 2011 4% social security part of SE tax, social security tax, or railroad retirement (tier 1) tax. Free federal tax forms 2011   All your combined wages, tips, and net earnings in 2013 are subject to any combination of the 2. Free federal tax forms 2011 9% Medicare part of SE tax, social security tax, or railroad retirement (tier 1) tax. Free federal tax forms 2011   If wages and tips you receive as an employee are subject to either social security or railroad retirement (tier 1) tax, or both, and total at least $113,700, do not pay the 12. Free federal tax forms 2011 4% social security part of the SE tax on any of your net earnings. Free federal tax forms 2011 However, you must pay the 2. Free federal tax forms 2011 9% Medicare part of the SE tax on all your net earnings. Free federal tax forms 2011 Deduct one-half of your SE tax as an adjustment to income on line 27 of Form 1040.
