Can list amounts received on a schedule C without reporting who paid it to me?
On schedule C - you do not list who paid to you - you ONLY list the gross amount you received for freelance work you provided.
You will report your income and may deduct qualified expenses.- you may report all business income and expenses
-on the schedule C -
The net income (after deductions) will be reported on the form 1040 line 12 -
If the business has net income over $400, it may be required to file Schedule SE, Self-Employment Tax
and net self-employment income is subject to 15.3% self-employment tax.Self-employment taxes from schedule SE will go to the form 1040 line 57 -
Also - you will deduct half of self-employment taxes on the line 27.
Generally - that all you needs tax purposes - just verify possible deductions.
