This calculator does not include any required amounts for the Additional Medicare Tax. This tax applies to a household and not an individual tax payer. Joint filers with over $250,000 in earned income, single filers with over $200,000 in earned income and married persons filing separately with over $125,000 in earned income will owe an additional 0.9% of the amount exceeding these thresholds. These thresholds are not index to inflation. This is paid only by the tax payer, there is no additional employer amount. This additional tax is calculated on your full tax return and while it is directly related to your earned income it is not calculated with your self-employment taxes.

Enter your total employment wages and tips that you have been paid where Social Security taxes have been deducted. In 2021, income up to $142,800 is subject to the 12.4% tax paid for the Social Security portion of self-employment taxes (FICA). Your employment wages and tips should have a 6.2% deduction for Social Security from your pay, and an additional 6.2% payment from your employer that does not appear on your paycheck. If your total wages, tips and self-employment income exceed $142,800 you only owe Social Security taxes on the difference between your self-employment income and $142,800. If your total employment wages and tips exceed $142,800 in 2021 you will not owe any additional FICA taxes for the year.

If the result is less than $400.00, you do not owe any self-employment tax on this income.
