Frequently asked questions

How do I know if I qualify as self-employed?

Check to see which tax form you use — some examples of tax documents for self-employment income include:

  • Schedule C (Sole Proprietorship)
  • K-1/Form 1065 (Partnership)
  • K-1/Form 1120S (S-Corp)
  • Form 1120 (C-Corp)

You can also include income you earn from a W-2 issued by your company. These earnings should be reflected on your business returns, but if we can’t identify them clearly we may ask for copies of your W-2s from the past two years.
