Irs federal tax tables 2011 Introduction Self-employment tax (SE tax) is a social security and Medicare tax primarily for individuals who work for themselves. Irs federal tax tables 2011 It is similar to the social security and Medicare taxes withheld from the pay of most wage earners. Irs federal tax tables 2011 You usually have to pay SE tax if you are self-employed. Irs federal tax tables 2011 You are usually self-employed if you operate your own farm on land you either own or rent. Irs federal tax tables 2011 You have to figure SE tax on Schedule SE (Form 1040). Irs federal tax tables 2011 Farmers who have employees may have to pay the employer's share of social security and Medicare taxes, as well.

Irs federal tax tables 2011 Why Pay Self-Employment Tax? Social security benefits are available to self-employed persons just as they are to wage earners. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Your payments of SE tax contribute to your coverage under the social security system. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Social security coverage provides you with retirement benefits, disability benefits, survivor benefits, and hospital insurance (Medicare) benefits. Irs federal tax tables 2011 How to become insured under social security. Irs federal tax tables 2011   You must be insured under the social security system before you begin receiving social security benefits. Irs federal tax tables 2011 You are insured if you have the required number of credits (also called quarters of coverage). Irs federal tax tables 2011 Earning credits in 2013. Irs federal tax tables 2011   You can earn a maximum of four credits per year. Irs federal tax tables 2011 For 2013, you earn one credit for each $1,160 of combined wages and self-employment earnings subject to social security tax. Irs federal tax tables 2011 You need $4,640 ($1,160 × 4) of combined wages and self-employment earnings subject to social security tax to earn four credits in 2013. Irs federal tax tables 2011 It does not matter whether the income is earned in 1 quarter or is spread over 2 or more quarters. Irs federal tax tables 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 or visit the SSA website at www. Irs federal tax tables 2011 socialsecurity. Irs federal tax tables 2011 gov. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Making false statements to get or to increase social security benefits may subject you to penalties. Irs federal tax tables 2011 The Social Security Administration (SSA) time limit for posting self-employment earnings. Irs federal tax tables 2011   Generally, the SSA will give you credit only for self-employment earnings reported on a tax return filed within 3 years, 3 months, and 15 days after the tax year you earned the income. Irs federal tax tables 2011    If you file your tax return or report a change in your self-employment earnings after the SSA time limit for posting self-employment earnings, the SSA may change its records, but only to remove or reduce the amount. Irs federal tax tables 2011 The SSA will not change its records to increase your self-employment earnings after the SSA time limit listed above. Irs federal tax tables 2011 How To Pay Self-Employment Tax To pay SE tax, you must have a social security number (SSN) or an individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN). Irs federal tax tables 2011 This section explains how to: Obtain an SSN or ITIN, and Pay your SE tax using estimated tax. Irs federal tax tables 2011 An ITIN does not entitle you to social security benefits. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Obtaining an ITIN does not change your immigration or employment status under U. Irs federal tax tables 2011 S. Irs federal tax tables 2011 law. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Obtaining a social security number. Irs federal tax tables 2011   If you have never had an SSN, apply for one using Form SS-5, Application for a Social Security Card. Irs federal tax tables 2011 The application is also available in Spanish. Irs federal tax tables 2011 You can get this form at any Social Security office or by calling 1-800-772-1213. Irs federal tax tables 2011    You can also download Form SS-5 from the Social Security Administration website at  www. Irs federal tax tables 2011 socialsecurity. Irs federal tax tables 2011 gov. Irs federal tax tables 2011   If you have a social security number from the time you were an employee, you must use that number. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Do not apply for a new one. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Replacing a lost social security card. Irs federal tax tables 2011   If you have a number but lost your card, file Form SS-5. Irs federal tax tables 2011 You will get a new card showing your original number, not a new number. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Name change. Irs federal tax tables 2011   If your name has changed since you received your social security card, complete Form SS-5 to report a name change. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Obtaining an individual taxpayer identification number. Irs federal tax tables 2011   The IRS will issue you an ITIN, for tax use only, if you are a nonresident or resident alien and you do not have, and are not eligible to get, an SSN. Irs federal tax tables 2011 To apply for an ITIN, file Form W-7, Application for IRS Individual Taxpayer Identification Number. Irs federal tax tables 2011 You can get this form by calling 1-800-829-3676. Irs federal tax tables 2011 For more information on ITINs, see Publication 1915, Understanding Your IRS Individual Taxpayer Identification Number. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Form W-7 and Publication 1915 are also available in Spanish. Irs federal tax tables 2011    You can also download Form W-7 from the IRS website at IRS. Irs federal tax tables 2011 gov. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Paying estimated tax. Irs federal tax tables 2011   Estimated tax is the method used to pay tax (including SE tax) on income not subject to withholding. Irs federal tax tables 2011 You generally have to make estimated tax payments if you expect to owe tax, including SE tax, of $1,000 or more when you file your return. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Use Form 1040-ES, Estimated Tax for Individuals, to figure and pay the tax. Irs federal tax tables 2011   However, if at least two-thirds of your gross income for 2013 or 2014 was from farming and you file your 2014 Form 1040 and pay all the tax due by March 2, 2015, you do not have to pay any estimated tax. Irs federal tax tables 2011 For more information about estimated tax for farmers, see chapter 15. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Penalty for underpayment of estimated tax. Irs federal tax tables 2011   You may have to pay a penalty if you do not pay enough estimated tax by its due date. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Who Must Pay Self-Employment Tax? You must pay SE tax and file Schedule SE (Form 1040) if your net earnings from self-employment were $400 or more. Irs federal tax tables 2011 The SE tax rules apply no matter how old you are and even if you are already receiving social security or Medicare benefits. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Aliens. Irs federal tax tables 2011   Generally, resident aliens must pay self-employment tax under the same rules that apply to U. Irs federal tax tables 2011 S. Irs federal tax tables 2011 citizens. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Nonresident aliens are not subject to self-employment tax. Irs federal tax tables 2011 However, residents of the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, or American Samoa are subject to self-employment tax, as they are considered U. Irs federal tax tables 2011 S. Irs federal tax tables 2011 residents for self-employment tax purposes. Irs federal tax tables 2011 For more information on aliens, see Publication 519, U. Irs federal tax tables 2011 S. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Tax Guide for Aliens. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Are you self-employed?   You are self-employed if you carry on a trade or business (such as running a farm) as a sole proprietor, an independent contractor, a member of a partnership, or are otherwise in business for yourself. Irs federal tax tables 2011 A trade or business is generally an activity carried on for a livelihood or in good faith to make a profit. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Share farmer. Irs federal tax tables 2011   You are a self-employed farmer under an income-sharing arrangement if both the following apply. Irs federal tax tables 2011 You produce a crop or raise livestock on land belonging to another person. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Your share of the crop or livestock, or the proceeds from their sale, depends on the amount produced. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Your net farm profit or loss from the income-sharing arrangement is reported on Schedule F (Form 1040) and included in your self-employment earnings. Irs federal tax tables 2011   If you produce a crop or livestock on land belonging to another person and are to receive a specified rate of pay, a fixed sum of money, or a fixed quantity of the crop or livestock, and not a share of the crop or livestock or their proceeds, you may be either self-employed or an employee of the landowner. Irs federal tax tables 2011 This will depend on whether the landowner has the right to direct or control your performance of services. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Example. Irs federal tax tables 2011 A share farmer produces a crop on land owned by another person on a 50-50 crop-share basis. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Under the terms of their agreement, the share farmer furnishes the labor and half the cost of seed and fertilizer. Irs federal tax tables 2011 The landowner furnishes the machinery and equipment used to produce and harvest the crop, and half the cost of seed and fertilizer. Irs federal tax tables 2011 The share farmer is provided a house in which to live. Irs federal tax tables 2011 The landowner and the share farmer decide on a cropping plan. Irs federal tax tables 2011 The share farmer is a self-employed farmer for purposes of the agreement to produce the crops, and the share farmer's part of the profit or loss from the crops is reported on Schedule F (Form 1040) and included in self-employment earnings. Irs federal tax tables 2011 The tax treatment of the landowner is discussed later under Landlord Participation in Farming. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Contract farming. Irs federal tax tables 2011   Under typical contract farming arrangements, the grower receives a fixed payment per unit of crops or finished livestock delivered to the processor or packing company. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Since the grower typically furnishes labor and bears some production risk, the payments are reported on Schedule F and are therefore subject to self-employment tax. Irs federal tax tables 2011 4-H Club or FFA project. Irs federal tax tables 2011   If an individual participates in a 4-H Club or Future Farmers of America (FFA) project, any net income received from sales or prizes related to the project may be subject to income tax. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Report the net income as “Other income” on line 21 of Form 1040. Irs federal tax tables 2011 If necessary, attach a statement showing the gross income and expenses. Irs federal tax tables 2011 The net income may not be subject to SE tax if the project is primarily for educational purposes and not for profit, and is completed by the individual under the rules and economic restrictions of the sponsoring 4-H or FFA organization. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Such a project is generally not considered a trade or business. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Partners in a partnership. Irs federal tax tables 2011   Generally, you are self-employed if you are a member of a partnership that carries on a trade or business. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Limited partner. Irs federal tax tables 2011   If you are a limited partner, your partnership income is generally not subject to SE tax. Irs federal tax tables 2011 However, guaranteed payments you receive for services you perform for the partnership are subject to SE tax and should be reported to you in box 14 of your Schedule K-1 (Form 1065). Irs federal tax tables 2011 Business Owned and Operated by Spouses. Irs federal tax tables 2011   If you and your spouse jointly own and operate a farm as 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. Irs federal tax tables 2011 You must file Form 1065, instead of Schedule F, unless you make a joint election to be treated as a qualified joint venture. Irs federal tax tables 2011 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. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Qualified joint venture. Irs federal tax tables 2011   If you and your spouse each materially participate as the only members of a jointly owned and operated farm, and you file a joint tax 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. Irs federal tax tables 2011 For an explanation of “material participation,” see the instructions for Schedule C, line G, and the instructions for Schedule F, line E. Irs federal tax tables 2011   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. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Each of you must file a separate Schedule F and a separate Schedule SE. Irs federal tax tables 2011 For more information, see Qualified Joint Venture in the Instructions for Schedule SE (Form 1040). Irs federal tax tables 2011 Spouse employee. Irs federal tax tables 2011   If your spouse is your employee, not your partner, you must withhold and pay social security and Medicare taxes for him or her. Irs federal tax tables 2011 For more information about employment taxes, see chapter 13. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Community property. Irs federal tax tables 2011   If you are a partner and your distributive share of any income or loss from a trade or business carried on by the partnership is community property, treat your share as your self-employment earnings. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Do not treat any of your share as self-employment earnings of your spouse. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Figuring Self-Employment Earnings Farmer. Irs federal tax tables 2011   If you are self-employed as a farmer, use Schedule F (Form 1040) to figure your self-employment earnings. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Partnership income or loss. Irs federal tax tables 2011   If you are a member of a partnership that carries on a trade or business, the partnership should report your self-employment earnings in box 14, code A, of your Schedule K-1 (Form 1065). Irs federal tax tables 2011 Box 14 of Schedule K-1 may also provide amounts for gross farming or fishing income (code B) and gross nonfarm income (code C). Irs federal tax tables 2011 Use these amounts if you use the farm or nonfarm optional method to figure net earnings from self-employment (see Methods for Figuring Net Earnings , later). Irs federal tax tables 2011   If you are a general partner, you may need to reduce these reported earnings by amounts you claim as a section 179 deduction, unreimbursed partnership expenses, or depletion on oil and gas properties. Irs federal tax tables 2011   If the amount reported is a loss, include only the deductible amount when you figure your total self-employment earnings. Irs federal tax tables 2011   For more information, see the Partner's Instructions for Schedule K-1 (Form 1065). Irs federal tax tables 2011   For general information on partnerships, see Publication 541. Irs federal tax tables 2011 More than one business. Irs federal tax tables 2011   If you have self-employment earnings from more than one trade, business, or profession, you generally must combine the net profit or loss from each to determine your total self-employment earnings. Irs federal tax tables 2011 A loss from one business reduces your profit from another business. Irs federal tax tables 2011 However, do not combine earnings from farm and nonfarm businesses if you are using one of the optional methods (discussed later) to figure net earnings. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Community property. Irs federal tax tables 2011   If any of the income from a farm or business, other than a partnership, is community property under state law, it is included in the self-employment earnings of the spouse carrying on the trade or business. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Lost income payments. Irs federal tax tables 2011   Lost income payments received from insurance or other sources for reducing or stopping farming activities are included in self-employment earnings. Irs federal tax tables 2011 These include USDA payments to compensate for lost income resulting from reductions in tobacco quotas and allotments. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Even if you are not farming when you receive the payment, it is included in self-employment earnings if it relates to your farm business (even though it is temporarily inactive). Irs federal tax tables 2011 A connection exists if it is clear the payment would not have been made but for your conduct of your farm business. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Gain or loss. Irs federal tax tables 2011   A gain or loss from the disposition of property that is neither stock in trade nor held primarily for sale to customers is not included in self-employment earnings. Irs federal tax tables 2011 It does not matter whether the disposition is a sale, exchange, or involuntary conversion. Irs federal tax tables 2011 For example, gains or losses from the disposition of the following types of property are not included in self-employment earnings. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Investment property. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Depreciable property or other fixed assets used in your trade or business. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Livestock held for draft, breeding, sport, or dairy purposes, and not held primarily for sale, regardless of how long the livestock was held, or whether it was raised or purchased. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Unharvested standing crops sold with land held more than 1 year. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Timber, coal, or iron ore held for more than 1 year if an economic interest was retained, such as a right to receive coal royalties. Irs federal tax tables 2011   A gain or loss from the cutting of timber is not included in self-employment earnings if the cutting is treated as a sale or exchange. Irs federal tax tables 2011 For more information on electing to treat the cutting of timber as a sale or exchange, see Timber in chapter 8. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Wages and salaries. Irs federal tax tables 2011   Wages and salaries received for services performed as an employee and covered by social security or railroad retirement are not included in self-employment earnings. Irs federal tax tables 2011   Wages paid in kind to you for agricultural labor, such as commodity wages, are not included in self-employment earnings. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Retired partner. Irs federal tax tables 2011   Retirement income received by a partner from his or her partnership under a written plan is not included in self-employment earnings if all the following apply. Irs federal tax tables 2011 The retired partner performs no services for the partnership during the year. Irs federal tax tables 2011 The retired partner is owed only the retirement payments. Irs federal tax tables 2011 The retired partner's share (if any) of the partnership capital was fully paid to the retired partner. Irs federal tax tables 2011 The payments to the retired partner are lifelong periodic payments. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) payments. Irs federal tax tables 2011   Under the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), if you own or operate highly erodible or other specified cropland, you may enter into a longterm contract with the USDA, agreeing to convert to a less intensive use of that cropland. Irs federal tax tables 2011 You must include the annual rental payments and any onetime incentive payment you receive under the program on Schedule F, lines 4a and 4b. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Cost share payments you receive may qualify for the costsharing exclusion. Irs federal tax tables 2011 See Cost-Sharing Exclusion (Improvements), above. Irs federal tax tables 2011 CRP payments are reported to you on Form 1099G. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Individuals who are receiving Social Security retirement or disability benefits may exclude CRP payments when calculating self-employment tax. Irs federal tax tables 2011 See the instructions for Schedule SE (Form 1040). Irs federal tax tables 2011 Self-employed health insurance deduction. Irs federal tax tables 2011   You cannot deduct the self-employed health insurance deduction you report on Form 1040, line 29, from self-employment earnings on Schedule SE (Form 1040). Irs federal tax tables 2011 Landlord Participation in Farming As a general rule, income and deductions from rentals and from personal property leased with real estate are not included in determining self-employment earnings. Irs federal tax tables 2011 However, income and deductions from farm rentals, including government commodity program payments received by a landowner who rents land, are included if the rental arrangement provides that the landowner will, and does, materially participate in the production or management of production of the farm products on the land. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Crop shares. Irs federal tax tables 2011   Rent paid in the form of crop shares is included in self-employment earnings for the year you sell, exchange, give away, or use the crop shares if you meet one of the four material participation tests (discussed next) at the time the crop shares are produced. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Feeding such crop shares to livestock is considered using them. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Your gross income for figuring your self-employment earnings includes the fair market value of the crop shares when they are used as feed. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Material participation for landlords. Irs federal tax tables 2011   You materially participate if you have an arrangement with your tenant for your participation and you meet one or more of the following tests. Irs federal tax tables 2011 You do at least three of the following. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Pay, using cash or credit, at least half the direct costs of producing the crop or livestock. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Furnish at least half the tools, equipment, and livestock used in the production activities. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Advise or consult with your tenant. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Inspect the production activities periodically. Irs federal tax tables 2011 You regularly and frequently make, or take an important part in making, management decisions substantially contributing to or affecting the success of the enterprise. Irs federal tax tables 2011 You work 100 hours or more spread over a period of 5 weeks or more in activities connected with agricultural production. Irs federal tax tables 2011 You do things that, considered in their totality, show you are materially and significantly involved in the production of the farm commodities. Irs federal tax tables 2011 These tests may be used as general guides for determining whether you are a material participant. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Example. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Drew Houston agrees to produce a crop on J. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Clarke's cotton farm, with each receiving half the proceeds. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Clarke advises Houston when to plant, spray, and pick the cotton. Irs federal tax tables 2011 During the growing season, Clarke inspects the crop every few days to determine whether Houston is properly taking care of the crop. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Houston furnishes all labor needed to grow and harvest the crop. Irs federal tax tables 2011 The management decisions made by Clarke in connection with the care of the cotton crop and his regular inspection of the crop establish that he participates to a material degree in the cotton production operations. Irs federal tax tables 2011 The income Clarke receives from his cotton farm is included in his self-employment earnings. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Methods for Figuring Net Earnings There are three ways to figure your net earnings from self-employment. Irs federal tax tables 2011 The regular method. Irs federal tax tables 2011 The farm optional method. Irs federal tax tables 2011 The nonfarm optional method. Irs federal tax tables 2011 You must use the regular method unless you are eligible to use one or both of the optional methods. Irs federal tax tables 2011 See Figure 12-1 , shown later. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Figure 12-1. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Can I Use the Optional Methods? Please click here for the text description of the image. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Figure 12–1. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Can I Use the Optional Methods? Why use an optional method?   You may want to use the optional methods (discussed later) when you have a loss or a small net profit and any one of the following applies. Irs federal tax tables 2011 You want to receive credit for social security benefit coverage. Irs federal tax tables 2011 You incurred child or dependent care expenses for which you could claim a credit. Irs federal tax tables 2011 (An optional method may increase your earned income, which could increase your credit. Irs federal tax tables 2011 ) You are entitled to the earned income credit. Irs federal tax tables 2011 (An optional method may increase your earned income, which could increase your credit. Irs federal tax tables 2011 ) You are entitled to the additional child tax credit. Irs federal tax tables 2011 (An optional method may increase your earned income, which could increase your credit. Irs federal tax tables 2011 ) Effects of using an optional method. Irs federal tax tables 2011   Using an optional method could increase your SE tax. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Paying more SE tax may result in you getting higher social security disability or retirement benefits. Irs federal tax tables 2011   If you use either or both optional methods, you must figure and pay the SE tax due under these methods even if you would have had a smaller SE tax or no SE tax using the regular method. Irs federal tax tables 2011   The optional methods may be used only to figure your SE tax. Irs federal tax tables 2011 To figure your income tax, include your actual self-employment earnings in gross income, regardless of which method you use to determine SE tax. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Regular Method Multiply your total self-employment earnings by 92. Irs federal tax tables 2011 35% (. Irs federal tax tables 2011 9235) to get your net earnings under the regular method. Irs federal tax tables 2011 See Short Schedule SE, line 4, or Long Schedule SE, line 4a. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Net earnings figured using the regular method are also called “actual net earnings. Irs federal tax tables 2011 ” Farm Optional Method Use the farm optional method only for self-employment earnings from a farming business. Irs federal tax tables 2011 You can use this method if you meet either of the following tests. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Your gross farm income is $6,960 or less. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Your net farm profits are less than $5,024. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Gross farm income. Irs federal tax tables 2011   Your gross farm income is the total of the amounts from: Schedule F (Form 1040), line 9, and Schedule K-1 (Form 1065), box 14, code B (from farm partnerships). Irs federal tax tables 2011 Net farm profits. Irs federal tax tables 2011   Net farm profits generally are the total of the amounts from: Schedule F (Form 1040), line 34, and Schedule K-1 (Form 1065), box 14, code A (from farm partnerships). Irs federal tax tables 2011 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. Irs federal tax tables 2011 For more information, see Partnership income or loss , earlier. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Figuring farm net earnings. Irs federal tax tables 2011   If you meet either of the two tests explained above, use Table 12-1. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Figuring Farm Net Earnings , to figure your net earnings from self-employment under the farm optional method. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Table 12-1. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Figuring Farm Net Earnings IF your gross farm income  is. Irs federal tax tables 2011 . Irs federal tax tables 2011 . Irs federal tax tables 2011 THEN your net earnings are equal to. Irs federal tax tables 2011 . Irs federal tax tables 2011 . Irs federal tax tables 2011 $6,960 or less Two-thirds of your gross farm income. Irs federal tax tables 2011 More than $6,960 $4,640 Optional method can reduce or eliminate SE tax. Irs federal tax tables 2011   If your gross farm income is $6,960 or less and your farm net earnings figured under the farm optional method are less than your actual net earnings, you can use the farm optional method to reduce or eliminate your SE tax. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Your actual net earnings are your net earnings figured using the regular method, explained earlier. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Example. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Your gross farm income is $540 and your net farm profit is $460. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Consequently, your net earnings figured under the farm optional method are $360 (2/3 of $540) and your actual net earnings are $425 (92. Irs federal tax tables 2011 35% of $460). Irs federal tax tables 2011 You owe no SE tax if you use the optional method because your net earnings under the farm optional method are less than $400. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Nonfarm Optional Method This is an optional method available for determining net earnings from nonfarm self-employment, much like the farm optional method. Irs federal tax tables 2011 If you are also engaged in a nonfarm business, you may be able to use this method to figure your nonfarm net earnings. Irs federal tax tables 2011 You can use this method even if you do not use the farm optional method for determining your farm net earnings and even if you have a net loss from your nonfarm business. Irs federal tax tables 2011 For more information about the nonfarm optional method, see Publication 334. Irs federal tax tables 2011 You cannot combine farm and nonfarm self-employment earnings to figure your net earnings under either of the optional methods. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Using Both Optional Methods If you use both optional methods, you must add the net earnings figured under each method to arrive at your total net earnings from self-employment. Irs federal tax tables 2011 You can report less than your total actual farm and nonfarm net earnings but not less than actual nonfarm net earnings. Irs federal tax tables 2011 If you use both optional methods, you can report no more than $4,640 as your combined net earnings from self-employment. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Reporting Self-Employment Tax Use Schedule SE (Form 1040) to figure and report your SE tax. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Then, enter the SE tax on line 56 of Form 1040 and attach Schedule SE to Form 1040. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Most taxpayers can use Section A–Short Schedule SE to figure their SE tax. Irs federal tax tables 2011 However, certain taxpayers must use Section B–Long Schedule SE. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Use the chart on page 1 of Schedule SE to find out which one to use. Irs federal tax tables 2011 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. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Deduction for employer-equivalent portion of self-employment tax. Irs federal tax tables 2011   You can deduct the employer-equivalent portion of your SE tax in figuring your adjusted gross income. Irs federal tax tables 2011 This deduction only affects your income tax. Irs federal tax tables 2011 It does not affect either your net earnings from self-employment or your SE tax. Irs federal tax tables 2011   To deduct the tax, enter on Form 1040, line 27, the amount shown on Section A, Line 6, or Section B, line 13, Deduction for employer-equivalent portion of self-employment tax, of the Schedule SE. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Joint return. Irs federal tax tables 2011   Even if you file a joint return, you cannot file a joint Schedule SE. Irs federal tax tables 2011 This is true whether one spouse or both spouses have self-employment earnings. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Your spouse is not considered self-employed just because you are. Irs federal tax tables 2011 If both of you have self-employment earnings, each of you must complete a separate Schedule SE. Irs federal tax tables 2011 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. Irs federal tax tables 2011 Attach both schedules to the joint return. Irs federal tax tables 2011 If you and your spouse operate a business as a partnership, see Business Owned and Operated by Spouses and Qualified joint venture , earlier, under Who Must Pay Self-Employment Tax .

Domestic and International Programs

The Domestic and International Index (.pdf) lists all Appeals domestic and international related issues, including contact information, as follows:

  • ACI - Appeals Coordinated Issues
  • ACIcc - Appeals Coordinated Issues, Category of Case
  • CCI - Compliance Coordinated Issues
  • DCI - Decoordinated Issue (Decoordinated in Appeals information available)
  • EM - Appeals Emerging Issues
  • LT - Listed Transactions
  • SME - Subject Matter Expert
  • TOI - Transactions of Interest
  • UIL - Uniform Issue List

The Domestic and International Index is an alphabetical listing of all issues and should be referred to for all current contact information. It is searchable, using Acrobat Search.

ACI or ACIcc - An issue or category of case, is an issue of IRS-wide impact or importance requiring coordination with Appeals to ensure uniformity and consistency nationwide. This is achieved through the coordination of efforts between Appeals Officers (AO) and designated Technical Specialists (TS). The ACI program encompasses legal issues and factual issues and category of case.

An AO assigned a case with an ACI must consult with the TS prior to the scheduling of the initial conference to obtain current information. For ACIs, except those designated an ACIcc, the AO must get review and concurrence from the TS prior to discussing the settlement with the taxpayer.  Such review and concurrence extends to all aspects of the settlement including closing documents.

CCI - When Compliance coordinates an issue and issues a Coordinated Issue Paper (CIP) Appeals designates the issue as a Compliance Coordinated Issue (CCI).   Appeals generally develops Appeals Settlement Guidelines (ASG) for CCIs.   Effective with the date of the issuance of a CIP, the AO must get the review and concurrence of the Appeals’ TS before discussing the settlement with the taxpayer.  For a list of CCIs visit the Large Business and International (LB&I) Division Coordinated Issue Papers webpage.

EM – An Appeals Emerging Issue is an issue that surfaced in an industry or specialty area in a number of Appeals cases or it is understood cases will be coming to Appeals in the near future with the issue.  The AO assigned a case with an emerging issue is required to contact the designated TS (before holding the initial conference) to gain insight into both the industry or specialty area and the issue. He/she is required to maintain contact with the coordinator. Review and concurrence is not required until such time as an issue may be redesignated a CCI or ACI.

Appeals Settlement Guidelines (ASG)
NOTE: Since specialists may have changed since the finalized ASG was approved, it is recommended that you refer to the Domestic and International Index (.pdf) for contact information.
