Military state tax exemptions 9235) to get your net earnings under the regular method. Military state tax exemptions See Short Schedule SE, line 4, or Long Schedule SE, line 4a.

Military state tax exemptions Nonfarm Optional Method Use the nonfarm optional method only for earnings that do not come from farming. Military state tax exemptions You may use this method if you meet all the following tests. Military state tax exemptions You are self-employed on a regular basis. Military state tax exemptions 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. Military state tax exemptions The net earnings can be from either farm or nonfarm earnings or both. Military state tax exemptions You have used this method less than 5 years.

Military state tax exemptions THEN your net earnings are equal to. Military state tax exemptions . Military state tax exemptions .

Military state tax exemptions 35% (. Military state tax exemptions 9235) to get actual net earnings). Military state tax exemptions Actual net earnings are equivalent to net earnings figured using the regular method. Military state tax exemptions Optional net earnings less than actual net earnings. Military state tax exemptions   You cannot use this method to report an amount less than your actual net earnings from self-employment. Military state tax exemptions Gross nonfarm income of $6,960 or less. Military state tax exemptions   The following examples illustrate how to figure net earnings when gross nonfarm income is $6,960 or less. Military state tax exemptions Example 1. Military state tax exemptions Net nonfarm profit less than $5,024 and less than 72. Military state tax exemptions 189% of gross nonfarm income. Military state tax exemptions Ann Green runs a craft business. Military state tax exemptions Her actual net earnings from self-employment were $800 in 2011 and $900 in 2012. Military state tax exemptions She meets the test for being self-employed on a regular basis. Military state tax exemptions She has used the nonfarm optional method less than 5 years.

Military state tax exemptions 9235). Military state tax exemptions Because her net profit is less than $5,024 and less than 72. Military state tax exemptions 189% of her gross income, she can use the nonfarm optional method to figure net earnings of $3,600 (2/3 × $5,400). Military state tax exemptions Because these net earnings are higher than her actual net earnings, she can report net earnings of $3,600 for 2013. Military state tax exemptions Example 2. Military state tax exemptions Net nonfarm profit less than $5,024 but not less than 72. Military state tax exemptions 189% of gross nonfarm income. Military state tax exemptions Assume that in Example 1 Ann's gross income is $1,000 and her net profit is $800. Military state tax exemptions She must use the regular method to figure her net earnings. Military state tax exemptions She cannot use the nonfarm optional method because her net profit is not less than 72. Military state tax exemptions 189% of her gross income. Military state tax exemptions Example 3. Military state tax exemptions Net loss from a nonfarm business. Military state tax exemptions Assume that in Example 1 Ann has a net loss of $700. Military state tax exemptions She can use the nonfarm optional method and report $3,600 (2/3 × $5,400) as her net earnings. Military state tax exemptions Example 4. Military state tax exemptions Nonfarm net earnings less than $400. Military state tax exemptions Assume that in Example 1 Ann has gross income of $525 and a net profit of $175. Military state tax exemptions 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. Military state tax exemptions Gross nonfarm income of more than $6,960. Military state tax exemptions   The following examples illustrate how to figure net earnings when gross nonfarm income is more than $6,960. Military state tax exemptions Example 1. Military state tax exemptions Net nonfarm profit less than $5,024 and less than 72. Military state tax exemptions 189% of gross nonfarm income. Military state tax exemptions John White runs an appliance repair shop. Military state tax exemptions His actual net earnings from self-employment were $10,500 in 2011 and $9,500 in 2012.

Military state tax exemptions 9235). Military state tax exemptions Because his net profit is less than $5,024 and less than 72. Military state tax exemptions 189% of his gross income, he can use the nonfarm optional method to figure net earnings of $4,640. Military state tax exemptions Because these net earnings are higher than his actual net earnings, he can report net earnings of $4,640 for 2013. Military state tax exemptions Example 2. Military state tax exemptions Net nonfarm profit not less than $5,024. Military state tax exemptions Assume that in Example 1 John's net profit is $5,400. Military state tax exemptions He must use the regular method. Military state tax exemptions He cannot use the nonfarm optional method because his net nonfarm profit is not less than $5,024. Military state tax exemptions Example 3. Military state tax exemptions Net loss from a nonfarm business. Military state tax exemptions Assume that in Example 1 John has a net loss of $700. Military state tax exemptions He can use the nonfarm optional method and report $4,640 as his net earnings from self-employment.

Military state tax exemptions 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.

Military state tax exemptions Method 1. Military state tax exemptions Using the regular method for both farm and nonfarm income. Military state tax exemptions Method 2. Military state tax exemptions Using the optional method for farm income and the regular method for nonfarm income. Military state tax exemptions Method 3. Military state tax exemptions Using the regular method for farm income and the optional method for nonfarm income. Military state tax exemptions Method 4. Military state tax exemptions Using the optional method for both farm and nonfarm income. Military state tax exemptions Note.

Military state tax exemptions 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. Military state tax exemptions 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. Military state tax exemptions Reporting Self-Employment Tax Use Schedule SE (Form 1040) to figure and report your SE tax. Military state tax exemptions Then enter the SE tax on line 56 of Form 1040 and attach Schedule SE to Form 1040.

Military state tax exemptions Joint return. Military state tax exemptions   Even if you file a joint return, you cannot file a joint Schedule SE. Military state tax exemptions This is true whether one spouse or both spouses have earnings subject to SE tax. Military state tax exemptions If both of you have earnings subject to SE tax, each of you must complete a separate Schedule SE. Military state tax exemptions 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. Military state tax exemptions Attach both schedules to the joint return. Military state tax exemptions More than one business. Military state tax exemptions   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. Military state tax exemptions A loss from one business will reduce your profit from another business. Military state tax exemptions File one Schedule SE showing the earnings from self-employment, but file a separate Schedule C, C-EZ, or F for each business. Military state tax exemptions Example. Military state tax exemptions You are the sole proprietor of two separate businesses. Military state tax exemptions You operate a restaurant that made a net profit of $25,000. Military state tax exemptions You also have a cabinetmaking business that had a net loss of $500.
