SELF EMPLOYMENT
Expert:  Merlo replied 6 years ago.

Hello again Gsid,

 

If you reported income from self employment, then you should have also filed Schedule SE with your tax return to pay the SS and Medicare taxes that were due on that income. All you need to do is forward a copy of your Schedule SE to the SSA and they should be able to credit your account for 2004.

 

If you no longer have a copy of your Schedule SE, you can order a tax transcript from the IRS which will be a computerized printout of the forms and schedules that you filed for 2004. Call the IRS at(NNN) NNN-NNNNto order the tax transcript and it should be sent to you in around two weeks.
