H rblock com Publication 334 - Introductory Material Table of Contents IntroductionOrdering forms and publications. H rblock com Tax questions. H rblock com Future Developments What's New 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. H rblock com This publication has information on business income, expenses, and tax credits that may help you file your income tax return. H rblock com Are you self-employed?   You are self-employed if you carry on a trade or business as a sole proprietor or an independent contractor. H rblock com Sole proprietor. H rblock com   A sole proprietor is someone who owns an unincorporated business by himself or herself. H rblock com 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. H rblock com Trade or business. H rblock com    A trade or business is generally an activity carried on to make a profit. H rblock com The facts and circumstances of each case determine whether or not an activity is a trade or business. H rblock com You do not need to actually make a profit to be in a trade or business as long as you have a profit motive. H rblock com You do need to make ongoing efforts to further the interests of your business. H rblock com   You do not have to carry on regular full-time business activities to be self-employed. H rblock com Having a part-time business in addition to your regular job or business may be self-employment. H rblock com Independent contractor. H rblock com    People such as doctors, dentists, veterinarians, lawyers, accountants, contractors, subcontractors, public stenographers, or auctioneers who are in an independent trade, business, or profession in which they offer their services to the general public are generally independent contractors. H rblock com However, whether they are independent contractors or employees depends on the facts in each case. H rblock com The general rule is that an individual is an independent contractor if the payer has the right to control or to direct only the result of the work and not how it will be done. H rblock com The earnings of a person who is working as an independent contractor are subject to self-employment tax. H rblock com For more information on determining whether you are an employee or independent contractor, see Publication 15-A, Employer's Supplemental Tax Guide. H rblock com Statutory employee. H rblock com   A statutory employee has a checkmark in box 13 of his or her Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement. H rblock com Statutory employees use Schedule C or C-EZ to report their wages and expenses. H rblock com Limited liability company (LLC). H rblock com   A limited liability company (LLC) is an entity formed under state law by filing articles of organization. H rblock com Generally, a single-member LLC is disregarded as an entity separate from its owner and reports its income and deductions on its owner's federal income tax return. H rblock com An owner who is an individual may use Schedule C or C-EZ. H rblock com Business owned and operated by spouses. H rblock com   If you and your spouse jointly own and operate an unincorporated business and share in the profits and losses, you are partners in a partnership, whether or not you have a formal partnership agreement. H rblock com Do not use Schedule C or C-EZ. H rblock com Instead, file Form 1065, U. H rblock com S. H rblock com Return of Partnership Income. H rblock com For more information, see Publication 541, Partnerships. H rblock com    Exception—Community income. H rblock com If you and your spouse wholly own an unincorporated business as community property under the community property laws of a state, foreign country, or U. H rblock com S. H rblock com possession, you can treat the business either as a sole proprietorship or a partnership. H rblock com The only states with community property laws are Arizona, California, Idaho, Louisiana, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Washington, and Wisconsin. H rblock com A change in your reporting position will be treated as a conversion of the entity. H rblock com    Exception—Qualified joint venture. H rblock com If you and your spouse each materially participate as the only members of a jointly owned and operated business, and you file a joint return for the tax year, you can make a joint election to be treated as a qualified joint venture instead of a partnership for the tax year. H rblock com 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. H rblock com For an explanation of "material participation," see the Instructions for Schedule C, line G. H rblock com   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 respective interests in the venture. H rblock com Each of you must file a separate Schedule C or C-EZ and a separate Schedule SE. H rblock com For more information, see Qualified Joint Ventures in the Instructions for Schedule SE.
