View Full Version : Newly self-employed - basic income/SE tax question

08-18-2017, 12:35 PM
Hi, I have been trying to figure this out but just cannot get my mind around it so I thought I would just ask:

Estimating taxes. I owe SE and income taxes. The SE taxes are based on my gross income minus expenses aka net profit (line 31 from Schedule C, 1040). To calculate income taxes, the base is the AGI. What I don't see/understand is that I would expect my SE taxes to be based on a number from which my income taxes were deducted as well. What don't I see here?

It depends on what country and what type of entrepreneur you are. For example, when I opened a business with us, I consulted with accounting services in Latvia (https://breicis.com/en/accounting-services-latvia/). So they are now calculating them for me and payments to the staff too. And I recommend that you contact some trusted accounting office for advice, so as not to be fined for incorrect payment of taxes that you did not know about.
