I think this is always a great question. Someone sent in a question saying, “My son is a newspaper carrier. I would like to know if his income is subjected to Social Security and Medicare and if you need to file a Schedule C.” That’s a great question because I don’t know about a lot of people but I did grass cutting as a kid, I did lawn care, I did newspaper delivery, and I really don’t know what my parents did in those days. I will tell you if this person makes more than $600 they are considered self-employed. So you might want to make sure that that income is being reported properly and it would be on a schedule C. If you need help determining this, call 615-367-0819.
