Hi Min:

Self employment tax is calculated based on your net earnings from self-employment. Usually, this is just the "bot***** *****ne" on Schedule C. Since this is a separate calculation from federal income tax, any credits or incentives to which you are entitled wouldn't apply to self-employment tax directly. However, they would decrease your overall tax burden, so the result would be the same.
