have a loss or a small net profit and any one of the following applies. 2010 tax forms irs You want to receive credit for social security benefit coverage. 2010 tax forms irs You incurred child or dependent care expenses for which you could claim a credit. 2010 tax forms irs (An optional method may increase your earned income, which could increase your credit. 2010 tax forms irs ) You are

both optional methods, you must figure and pay the SE tax due under these methods even if you would have had a smaller tax or no tax using the regular method. 2010 tax forms irs   The optional methods may be used only to figure your SE tax. 2010 tax forms irs To figure your income tax, include your actual earnings in gross income, regardless of which method you use to determine SE tax. 2010 tax forms irs Regular Method Multiply your total earnings subject to SE tax by 92. 2010 tax forms irs 35% (. 2010 tax forms irs 9235) to get your net earnings under the regular method. 2010 tax forms irs

Method Use the nonfarm optional method only for earnings that do not come from farming. 2010 tax forms irs You may use this method if you meet all the following tests. 2010 tax forms irs You are self-employed on a regular basis. 2010 tax forms irs This means that your actual net earnings from self-employment were $400 or more in at least 2 of the 3 tax years before the one for which you use this method. 2010 tax forms irs The net earnings can be from either farm or nonfarm earnings or both. 2010 tax forms irs You have used this method less than 5 years. 2010 tax forms irs (There is a 5-year lifetime limit. 2010 tax forms irs ) The years do not have to be one after another. 2010 tax forms irs Your net nonfarm profits were: Less than $5,024, and Less than 72. 2010 tax forms irs 189% of your gross nonfarm income. 2010 tax forms irs Net nonfarm profits. 2010 tax forms irs   Net nonfarm profit generally is the total of the amounts from: Line 31, Schedule C (Form 1040), Line 3, Schedule C-EZ (Form 1040), Box 14, code A, Schedule K-1 (Form 1065) (from nonfarm partnerships), and Box 9, code J1, Schedule K-1 (Form 1065-B). 2010 tax forms irs   However, you may need to adjust the amount reported on Schedule K-1 if you are a general partner or if it is a loss. 2010 tax forms irs Gross nonfarm income. 2010 tax forms irs   Your gross nonfarm income generally is the total of the amounts from: Line 7, Schedule C (Form 1040), Line 1, Schedule C-EZ (Form 1040), Box 14, code C, Schedule K-1 (Form 1065) (from nonfarm partnerships), and Box 9, code J2, Schedule K-1 (Form 1065-B). 2010 tax forms irs Figuring Nonfarm Net Earnings If you meet the three tests explained earlier, use the following table to figure your net earnings from self-employment under the nonfarm optional method. 2010 tax forms irs Table 10-1. 2010 tax forms irs Figuring Nonfarm Net Earnings IF your gross nonfarm income is. 2010 tax forms irs . 2010 tax forms irs . 2010 tax forms irs THEN your net earnings are equal to. 2010 tax forms irs . 2010 tax forms irs . 2010 tax forms irs $6,960 or less Two-thirds of your gross nonfarm income. 2010 tax forms irs More than $6,960 $4,640 Actual net earnings. 2010 tax forms irs   Your actual net earnings are 92. 2010 tax forms irs 35% of your total earnings subject to SE tax (that is, multiply total earnings subject to SE tax by 92. 2010 tax forms irs 35% (. 2010 tax forms irs 9235) to get actual net earnings). 2010 tax forms irs Actual net earnings are equivalent to net earnings figured using the regular method. 2010 tax forms irs Optional net earnings less than actual net earnings. 2010 tax forms irs   You cannot use this method to report an amount less than your actual net earnings from self-employment. 2010 tax forms irs Gross nonfarm income of $6,960 or less. 2010 tax forms irs   The following examples illustrate how to figure net earnings when gross nonfarm income is $6,960 or less. 2010 tax forms irs Example 1. 2010 tax forms irs Net nonfarm profit less than $5,024 and less than 72. 2010 tax forms irs 189% of gross nonfarm income. 2010 tax forms irs Ann Green runs a craft business. 2010 tax forms irs Her actual net earnings from self-employment were $800 in 2011 and $900 in 2012. 2010 tax forms irs She meets the test for being self-employed on a regular basis. 2010 tax forms irs She has used the nonfarm optional method less than 5 years. 2010 tax forms irs Her gross income and net profit in 2013 are as follows: Gross nonfarm income $5,400 Net nonfarm profit $1,200 Ann's actual net earnings for 2013 are $1,108 ($1,200 × . 2010 tax forms irs 9235). 2010 tax forms irs Because her net profit is less than $5,024 and less than 72. 2010 tax forms irs 189% of her gross income, she can use the nonfarm optional method to figure net earnings of $3,600 (2/3 × $5,400). 2010 tax forms irs Because these net earnings are higher than her actual net earnings, she can report net earnings of $3,600 for 2013. 2010 tax forms irs Example 2. 2010 tax forms irs Net nonfarm profit less than $5,024 but not less than 72. 2010 tax forms irs 189% of gross nonfarm income. 2010 tax forms irs Assume that in Example 1 Ann's gross income is $1,000 and her net profit is $800. 2010 tax forms irs She must use the regular method to figure her net earnings. 2010 tax forms irs She cannot use the nonfarm optional method because her net profit is not less than 72. 2010 tax forms irs 189% of her gross income. 2010 tax forms irs Example 3. 2010 tax forms irs Net loss from a nonfarm business. 2010 tax forms irs Assume that in Example 1 Ann has a net loss of $700. 2010 tax forms irs She can use the nonfarm optional method and report $3,600 (2/3 × $5,400) as her net earnings. 2010 tax forms irs Example 4. 2010 tax forms irs Nonfarm net earnings less than $400. 2010 tax forms irs Assume that in Example 1 Ann has gross income of $525 and a net profit of $175. 2010 tax forms irs In this situation, she would not pay any SE tax under either the regular method or the nonfarm optional method because her net earnings under both methods are less than $400. 2010 tax forms irs Gross nonfarm income of more than $6,960. 2010 tax forms irs   The following examples illustrate how to figure net earnings when gross nonfarm income is more than $6,960. 2010 tax forms irs Example 1. 2010 tax forms irs Net nonfarm profit less than $5,024 and less than 72. 2010 tax forms irs 189% of gross nonfarm income. 2010 tax forms irs John White runs an appliance repair shop. 2010 tax forms irs His actual net earnings from self-employment were $10,500 in 2011 and $9,500 in 2012. 2010 tax forms irs He meets the test for being self-employed on a regular basis. 2010 tax forms irs He has used the nonfarm optional method less than 5 years. 2010 tax forms irs His gross income and net profit in 2013 are as follows: Gross nonfarm income $12,000 Net nonfarm profit $1,200 John's actual net earnings for 2013 are $1,108 ($1,200 × . 2010 tax forms irs 9235). 2010 tax forms irs Because his net profit is less than $5,024 and less than 72. 2010 tax forms irs 189% of his gross income, he can use the nonfarm optional method to figure net earnings of $4,640. 2010 tax forms irs Because these net earnings are higher than his actual net earnings, he can report net earnings of $4,640 for 2013. 2010 tax forms irs Example 2. 2010 tax forms irs Net nonfarm profit not less than $5,024. 2010 tax forms irs Assume that in Example 1 John's net profit is $5,400. 2010 tax forms irs He must use the regular method. 2010 tax forms irs He cannot use the nonfarm optional method because his net nonfarm profit is not less than $5,024. 2010 tax forms irs Example 3. 2010 tax forms irs Net loss from a nonfarm business. 2010 tax forms irs Assume that in Example 1 John has a net loss of $700. 2010 tax forms irs He can use the nonfarm optional method and report $4,640 as his net earnings from self-employment. 2010 tax forms irs Farm Optional Method Use the farm optional method only for earnings from a farming business. 2010 tax forms irs See Publication 225 for information about this method. 2010 tax forms irs Using Both Optional Methods If you have both farm and nonfarm earnings, you may be able to use both optional methods to determine your net earnings from self-employment. 2010 tax forms irs To figure your net earnings using both optional methods, you must: Figure your farm and nonfarm net earnings separately under each method. 2010 tax forms irs Do not combine farm earnings with nonfarm earnings to figure your net earnings under either method. 2010 tax forms irs Add the net earnings figured under each method to arrive at your total net earnings from self-employment. 2010 tax forms irs You can report less than your total actual farm and nonfarm net earnings but not less than actual nonfarm net earnings. 2010 tax forms irs If you use both optional methods, you can report no more than $4,640 as your combined net earnings from self-employment. 2010 tax forms irs Example. 2010 tax forms irs You are a self-employed farmer. 2010 tax forms irs You also operate a retail grocery store. 2010 tax forms irs Your gross income, actual net earnings from self-employment, and optional farm and optional nonfarm net earnings from self-employment are shown in Table 10-2. 2010 tax forms irs Table 10-2. 2010 tax forms irs Example—Farm and Nonfarm Earnings Income and Earnings Farm Nonfarm Gross income $3,000 $6,000 Actual net earnings $900 $500 Optional net earnings (2/3 of gross income) $2,000 $4,000 Table 10-3 shows four methods or combinations of methods you can use to figure net earnings from self-employment using the farm and nonfarm gross income and actual net earnings shown in Table 10-2. 2010 tax forms irs Method 1. 2010 tax forms irs Using the regular method for both farm and nonfarm income. 2010 tax forms irs Method 2. 2010 tax forms irs Using the optional method for farm income and the regular method for nonfarm income. 2010 tax forms irs Method 3. 2010 tax forms irs Using the regular method for farm income and the optional method for nonfarm income. 2010 tax forms irs Method 4. 2010 tax forms irs Using the optional method for both farm and nonfarm income. 2010 tax forms irs Note. 2010 tax forms irs Actual net earnings is the same as net earnings figured using the regular method. 2010 tax forms irs Table 10-3. 2010 tax forms irs Example—Net Earnings Net Earnings 1 2 3 4 Actual  farm $ 900   $ 900   Optional  farm   $ 2,000   $ 2,000 Actual nonfarm $ 500 $ 500     Optional nonfarm     $4,000 $4,000 Amount you can report: $1,400 $2,500 $4,900 $4,640* *Limited to $4,640 because you used both optional methods. 2010 tax forms irs Fiscal Year Filer If you use a tax year other than the calendar year, you must use the tax rate and maximum earnings limit in effect at the beginning of your tax year. 2010 tax forms irs Even if the tax rate or maximum earnings limit changes during your tax year, continue to use the same rate and limit throughout your tax year. 2010 tax forms irs Reporting Self-Employment Tax Use Schedule SE (Form 1040) to figure and report your SE tax. 2010 tax forms irs Then enter the SE tax on line 56 of Form 1040 and attach Schedule SE to Form 1040. 2010 tax forms irs Most taxpayers can use Section A—Short Schedule SE to figure their SE tax. 2010 tax forms irs However, certain taxpayers must use Section B—Long Schedule SE. 2010 tax forms irs If you have to pay SE tax, you must file Form 1040 (with Schedule SE attached) even if you do not otherwise have to file a federal income tax return. 2010 tax forms irs Joint return. 2010 tax forms irs   Even if you file a joint return, you cannot file a joint Schedule SE. 2010 tax forms irs This is true whether one spouse or both spouses have earnings subject to SE tax. 2010 tax forms irs If both of you have earnings subject to SE tax, each of you must complete a separate Schedule SE. 2010 tax forms irs However, if one spouse uses the Short Schedule SE and the other spouse has to use the Long Schedule SE, both can use the same form. 2010 tax forms irs Attach both schedules to the joint return. 2010 tax forms irs More than one business. 2010 tax forms irs   If you have more than one trade or business, you must combine the net profit (or loss) from each business to figure your SE tax. 2010 tax forms irs A loss from one business will reduce your profit from another business. 2010 tax forms irs File one Schedule SE showing the earnings from self-employment, but file a separate Schedule C, C-EZ, or F for each business. 2010 tax forms irs Example. 2010 tax forms irs You are the sole proprietor of two separate businesses. 2010 tax forms irs You operate a restaurant that made a net profit of $25,000. 2010 tax forms irs You also have a cabinetmaking business that had a net loss of $500. 2010 tax forms irs You must file a Schedule C for the restaurant showing your net profit of $25,000 and another Schedule C for the cabinetmaking business showing your net loss of $500. 2010 tax forms irs You file Schedule SE showing total earnings subject to SE tax of $24,500.
