I am a tatoo artist and received non-employee wages. I did not tatoo anywhere else except as and independent contractor for a specific business. Do I need to claim this income as self employment income and would I be responsible for completing schedule C and SE?

Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you. If you received more than $400 you will have to complete schedule C and if you net profit is more than $400 you will also have to complete Schedule SE (self-employment tax). Self-employment tax is your portion of social security and medicare tax (normally withheld from paycheck if employee).
