Actually there may be less actual NET change than you think .... You still considered a self employed individual

...

IRS just (by adding another owner/member requirres that you now file a partnership tax return (UNLESS you elect one of the corporate forms of taxation)

Expert:  Lane replied 1 year ago.

So, rather than filing a schedule C with your return, as you have been (where the profit flows to your 1040 on line 12 - business income or loss) the 1065 will generate a schedule K-1 that (based on ownership or partnership agreement) assign a proportion of the income or loss to you and the other owners ... then THAT k-1 is used to prepare your taxes (flows from your K-1, to schedule E, to line 17 of your return

Expert:  Lane replied 1 year ago.

Then that income (or loss) becomes part of your Adjusted Gross income, just as the income flowing from the schedule C did when you were a single member

Expert:  Lane replied 1 year ago.

And finally, becasue you are still considered "self employed" you will still have the schedule SE, just as you didi as a single member, where you pay self employment tax (both the employer and employee halves of social security and Medicare)

Expert:  Lane replied 1 year ago.

That's a pretty good foundation
