Ira (and others),

There are a number of specific tests that would determine whether this is non-SE income, but I can't see how you can avoid SE-tax in this case.

Can you tell me where I can find these conditions? My spouse is a resident. Her employer is a medical college. One of the hospitals she works at during her residency gives her a bonus each year. We've paid SE taxes for the past 2 years, but I would like to avoid those this year if we could.

Thanks,
Cookc2
