exempt from social security and Medicare taxes if you are a member of a recognized religious sect. 1040s See Publication 517 for more information about church employees and self-employment tax. 1040s Effect of Exclusion You must take all of your self-employment income into account in figuring your net earnings from self-employment, even income that is exempt from income tax because of the foreign

Clergy If you are a member of the clergy, you are treated as self-employed for self-employment tax purposes. 1040s Your U. 1040s S. 1040s self-employment tax is based upon net earnings from self-employment figured without regard to the foreign earned income exclusion or the foreign housing exclusion. 1040s You can receive exemption from coverage for your ministerial duties if you conscientiously oppose public insurance due to religious reasons or if you oppose it due to the religious principles of your denomination. 1040s You must file Form 4361 to apply for this exemption.

they are $400 or more) from those sources. 1040s You must pay the self-employment tax whether or not the income is exempt from U. 1040s S. 1040s income taxes (or whether or not you otherwise must file a U. 1040s S. 1040s income tax return). 1040s Unless your situation is described below, attach Schedule SE (Form 1040) to your U. 1040s S. 1040s income tax return. 1040s If you do not have to file Form 1040 with the United States and you are a resident of any of the U. 1040s S. 1040s possessions listed in the preceding paragraph, figure your self-employment tax on Form 1040-SS. 1040s Residents
