Self-employed individuals, including home based business owners, may deduct expenses related to their business not afforded to other taxpayers.  However, there is a unique set of business tax rules with which self-employed and home based business owners must comply.  If the taxpayer is a sole proprietor or single member LLC, the income and expenses of their business are reported on Schedule C of Form 1040.

Self-employed persons:

  • Make estimated tax payments
  • Pay self-employment tax (Social Security and Medicare)
  • Include income not subject to withholding when calculating estimated tax payments
  • Deduct ordinary and necessary expenses of running a business

For a complete discussion of business taxes for the self-employed, view the video at the following link.
