Good afternoonCustomerand welcome to Just Answer!

You are considered to be self employed if you work for yourself and are paid in this manner. You will need to file a form 1040 and file a Schedule C. You will use your Social Security Number as your id number. Most sole proprietors use their social security number as opposed to a federal tax id number.

Here are some helpful links to help you with filing:
